I wrote yesterday that I missed the Classic Menu in Windows 7.
Why the option was omitted is anyone’s guess, but the fact is that it’s gone. I did a search on the Internet and found a few solutions that were all going to cost me. Now, I’m not averse to paying for good software, but this didn’t warrant any expenditure.
I searched a bit further, and found an extremely simple solution that not only is free, but doesn’t require any additional software at all.
First of all, through Control Panel, –> Folder Options make sure that “Show hidden files, folders and drives” is selected.
Now, right-click on the toolbar and select Toolbars –> New toolbar… This will open up a folder selection window. Select ‘C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\windows\StartMenu\Programs\
The new item appears on the right-hand end of the Toolbar:
Click on the double arrow ‘>>’ and away you go.
