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.
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"
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.
