Sure, the system menu works just fine – for most people! But for hardcore professionals and power users, it can be maddening navigating through traditional menus to get to your hundreds of programs and applications. Time to level up to today’s discount software promotion, Start Menu X!

Start Menu X lets you launch programs without scrolling, clicking, or jumping through menu hoops. With Start Menu X, you can group programs based on their purpose, such as office applications and graphics programs, without needing to change their locations on your hard drive.

You can even use Start Menu X to assign a primary program to a folder that launches automatically when you click it. Plus, Start Menu X is fully customizable, allowing you to change the structure and add tabs so that it suits your needs.

It also works great in Windows 10!

Daniel Kamman I've used this for several years (Windows 10) -- it's a major convenience, a super time saver.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller Also a longtime satisfied user. Simply it's a "start menu" done right.

Bill Shinnick I've also used this for years and find it the best of its type. At this price try it.

RichU Did I miss something? Where is the version number for this download?
Also, is this giveaway only for the 32 bit version?

PortablesFan Hi, I just installed your giveaway on a test system and have enjoyed using prior versions before. It was particularly a lifesaver back on Windows 8!
On your page (the very last line), I see mention of a portable version. How does one go about setting that up? I couldn’t find more info on your site. Is it an option hidden in the installer after you paste in a Pro key? Or does one, for example, create the portable version from an installed version?
If portable use is an option, I’ll buy at least 2 copies of this...

Thank you.

Allan User Hi Dennis What is the difference between
Start Menu X and
Start Menu 10 ?

I bought several licenses for X. This menu system looks like what I now need :)

OrdinarySoft Hi Allan, since 6.0 version the start menu X and 10 is the same. You can switch a style in the options.

OrdinarySoft Hi RichU, The installer includes both version and setup proper version according to your system.

OrdinarySoft Hi PortablesFan, We don't have 100% pure portable version. But you can import/export settings in the options.
I'm sorry for your inconvenience.

Retired Engineer How does StartMenuX differ from the free Classic Shell menu, which I've long used?

Nigel User I noticed that OrdinarySoft answered a few customer questions but either missed or avoided answering "RichU" when he asked "Where is the version number for this download?"
No use downloading and going to the trouble of installing if we already have this version.
It is very neglectful for this information to have been missed.

Jay Softer OrdinarySoft, could you please specify exactly what version are you offering here.

I am sorry but your answer to RichU is rather not clear and not helpful.

PortablesFan It’s 6.32, which I believe is the current version. It seems to have a native 64-bit option, as it did not install into the (x86) folder on 64-bit Windows.

^ I installed the giveaway on a test PC and posted this info for RichU earlier, but it got hidden as it was my second post in a row...

Allan User Did I miss something? Where is the version number for this download?
Also, is this giveaway only for the 32 bit version?

I downloaded the free version and purchased several licenses. The Options\Options\About shows the version as:

Start Menu X 6.32 bitsdujour (64 bit).

The installer automatically installed the 64 bit version.

The Start Menu X can change to 3 "styles", one of which is the Start Menu 10 style. both versions are the same functionally.

I find the Virtual Groups and the entire list of all the many programs installed to be why I purchased several licenses.

I might suggest one install the software while it's free AND if you like it to take advantage of the very low price to purchase licenses for future needs (when you have to reinstall the OS or a new computer purchase. Those were my reasons.

Wolfgang Hertzog My paid version lost its license due to a software error. No new hardware was installed. So I am not very happy about the buggy hardware check.

OrdinarySoft Hi Wolfgang, I am sorry for the delay with the answer. We already reset your key and send you the answer via e-mail.

Wolfgang Hertzog The reset did work. I could register the software again.
