How to Add Custom All Menus Toolbar to Taskbar in Windows 8 and 8.1
This tutorial will show you how to create a single "All Menus" toolbar that opens into cascading menus of almost everything in your system.
The All Menus toolbar includes the complete Start menu (current user and all users), your user folder, Libraries, Computer, Homegroup, Network, Favorites, Recycle Bin, Recent Places, Applications, Devices and Printers, Programs and Features, All Tasks, All Settings, and Administrative Tools cascading menus.
1. Click/tap on Download below to download the All–Menus.zip file, and save it in any folder of your own.
2. Right click or press and hold on the All–Menus.zip file, and click/tap on Extract All.
3. Windows may then open another folder. At this point, to avoid confusion, just close all folder windows.
4. Right click or press and hold on the taskbar on your desktop, and click/tap on Toolbars and New toolbar.
5. Browse to the extracted All–Menus folder from steps 1 and 2 above, and open it. Select the TM (Total Menu) folder, and click/tap on the Select Folder button.
6. Unlock the taskbar.
7. Drag the TM Toolbar all the way to the left corner of your taskbar going past the other items (taskbar buttons and pinned icons), which will jump to the right.
8. Grab the first "handle" to the right of the TM toolbar, and drag it to the left across the TM toolbar icons so they are hidden.
NOTE: They must be hidden in order to appear as cascading menus.
9. Lock the taskbar.
10. Your toolbar should now look approximately like this below. It's main menu is at the far left of the taskbar, and each item in it expands to another menu. Shown here is the combined Start Menu expanded. It in turn contains items that expand, of which one is shown.
