    How to use classic start menu style in windows 7?

    I was using windows xp from a long time and have recently installed windows 7. Windows 7 is known for its stylish interface and aero effect but i don't like the start menu. I think classical start menu would be fine for me so trying to use the classical style menu but unable to find any setting to do that. Can you help me in this regard? Will I have to install some theme for that?

    you can use Classic Shell. It is a a small, simple tool that re-enables a collection of features that were available in older versions of Windows but do not exist in Windows 7. Most importantly, it brings back the classic Start menu, adds a Windows XP style toolbar for Windows Explorer and powers on a few smaller, less noticeable features. Sounds like exactly the tool we need! Let's install Classic Shell!

    Microsoft has discontinued the design of classic menu and new start menu was devised for a new look and flavor.

    If you want to see your Windows7 start menu in earlier style, the only way is to use a small third party software,

    The software is small and very little footprint, tge program is called CLASSIC SHELL.and importantly, it's free.

    Log in to : http://sourceforge.ner/projects/classicshell/files, to download the file and install.
