    Start Menu 7

    It comes with an optional orb. Rt click the orb to select a skin for it. It takes a few mins , but soon it shoves the other taskbar items over .

    Rt click the startmenu7 icon in notification area and select scale and skin.

    Then fire up the menu drag the bottom edge down to the taskbar.

    Add and remove items from it with the + or - buttons.

    It is the best start menu I have seen.

    Your graphics card is more than capable of dealing with Aero. What problems are you having?

    There is also ViStart for Windows 8 -- not quite so nice, it just replicates the Win7 Start Menu but in Win8.

    Yes I have tried that one - thanks - Start Menu 7 is much better imo.

    What is not working ?

    I have no problems with startmenu7.

    I wasn't keen on Vistart - can't recall exactly why now.

    I have problems with ViStart not startmenu7 ...

    But I give it a try now (startmenu7) and seems to be very good.

    I tried it, but was disappointed that it had no right-click functionality (tho the programmer says it's coming).

    Start Menu 7 has.

    No contest.
