Start Menu X - How it works

The program replaces the Start menu. The menu is only replaced when the program is loaded. Start Menu X adds itself to the autostart list during installation, but you can change this using the msconfig utility.


You can access the program settings by right-clicking the program icon in the notification area (near the clock) or right-clicking anywhere in the menu.

Notification Area

Exiting and uninstalling the program

To exit the program, select "Exit" in the context menu. To uninstall the program, find the Start Menu X folder in menu and run Uninstall shortcut or use the system application management tool  - "Control Panel -> Programs"

Data Storage

The program stores your settings in the folder
Example: Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\StartMenuX
                Windows 7 - C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\StartMenuX

And the system registry –
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ordinarysoft\Start Menu X

The portable version of the program stores all of its settings in files located in the program folder.
