Windows 10 startmenu for all Windows OS.

This is not a concept. It is a working skin for Vistart.

Detailed instructions how to use it on AskVG  www.askvg.com/skin-get-windows…

Short version:
Unzip the file.Check which folder you need to copy and paste. The folder "Newstartmenuforxpvistaand7" is for XP, Vista and Windows7. :) The folder "Newstartmenuforwindows8and8.1"is for Windows8 and Windows8.1 Place the complete folder in the skins folder of Vistart. Open the languages folder and rename the english language file to whatever you want. Don't delete it. Place the included language file in the languages folder.After all restart Vistart to see the new skin in the options menu.
For use with other skins undo the change of the language file.
If you change your userpicture you have to retart Vistart to see the change.
Please have a look on the included picture to see how to configure the options menu. In short anything which is not blank must be set to "Don't show item"

The skins folder is in appdata, not in program files!

If you don't have Vistart already, get it herelee-soft.com/vistart/ for use with XP, Vista and Winddows7
and for use With Windows8 and 8.1download this versionwindows-start-menu-vistart.sof…
Download the version on top of the page.
It is free software.:)

Watch it in motion on YouTubeyoutu.be/2c5d37UZI-s

How do you set your user picture? When I used this skin, my username is covering the photos app and there's this "documents" covering the Music app. Also the start button shows a plain blue rectangle with a transparent-white one on top. And the searchbar on the taskbar is nowhere to be seen. Please help! :(

how to add search bar in taskbar windows 7 like in that screenshot?
PeterRollar's avatar
PeterRollarHobbyist General Artist
The searchbar is part of the startmenu.
anggaFSP's avatar
yes thank you,,
but i got some trouble because my pinned applications and running applicaiton is covered with that searchbar.

That's normal behaviour, and cannot be changed. The solution is to pin some apps you normally don't use to the taskbar. So the apps you need are moved to the right side and will be visible again.
anggaFSP's avatar
well, i found my solution
i added address bar to taskbar and move it before pinned application
and solved. now your theme is look perfect!!

Hate this garbage.

I tried Windows8 and now my WindowsMonster laptop gathers dust in a closet while I use the trusty workhorse 7 (SEVEN !) and try to find a buyer for the monster. Price: $600 (SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS !)
