Tidy Start Menu Organizes Messed Up Windows Start Menu
March 4, 2010 | Filed under Software;
Any programmer or even a power user will end up installing many software on their computer and causing their start menu to get really huge. As a result, each time you want to launch a program, it is frustrating because it takes too much time just to find it in the menu. To solve this inconvenience, we can use Tidy Start Menu to help us organize our messy Start Menu.
The “Tidy Start Menu” program will help you to put the menu in order and make your work comfortable. Basically this free application places the shortcuts into categories, for example the Internet programs can be put into the “Internet” category, while all games can be included in the “Games” category. Thus, after using the program, you will have a compact menu, which will contain nothing but categories’ names. Therefore, it will be no trouble to find a necessary program. All things the program performs can be done manually. However, with the help of the program, it becomes much easier and handier.
The freeware version of Tidy Start Menu includes the following features:
– Configure the menus for all users of your PC and hide unnecessary programs from your children or employees.
– Remove obsolete shortcuts from Start Menu.
– Import/Export wizard to XML file
– Backup/Restore start menu wizard
The official Tidy Start Menu website only shows a screenshot that this tool is being used in Windows XP but did not mention if this tool will support Windows 7. It is being tested on Windows 7 and it works perfectly without problems.
