  • You forgot MenuApp, IMO the best free tool to get the classic start menu back in W7, but it does a lot more. MenuApp can be configured to show the content of any folder, including of course the All Programs folders.

    Unlike the two methods that do not require a third party application, MenuApp can display the content of several folders at the same time, and that's required to show the All Programs menu for both all users and the current user mixed together, exactly like under XP.

    It doesn't have fancy skins or aero support, but it is lite. And of course, it is free.

So much for choice and personal preference! Illogical and stupid, but I expect no less from those with a cult-like mentality (be it Microsoft, Apple, religion, politics, or anything else).
