Win 7 Start Menu

Recommended Posts

Press the start button on keyboard and start typing the program name, until it appears and press enter. Far easier and faster than the old method

 

For Task Manager:

use CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

 

or type 'taskmgr' into the start menu search and press enter

 

Whichever is faster for ya!

I find it much faster to simply RIGHT-CLICK the taskbar and choose "Star Task Manager" from there. 2 Clicks and you're done :)

 

As for the "fly-out menu", no it's not possible...at least not without third-party hacks.

+1, I was going to say there's probably a small hack you could acquire to fix the program list to a more classic style.

 

I'm still a keyboard shortcut lover but I didn't know about the Task Manger from Taskbar. Nice!

That ClassicShell looks nice.  Looks like it would remove a lot of the frustrations of the Win 7 Windows Explorer.  Anyone have any negatives about it, and can it be uninstalled without messing up Win 7?
