Go Classic in Vista

Go Classic in Vista

Have you recently started using Windows Vista? If so, are you having a little trouble navigating your way through the new setup of the operating system? At first, it can be quite confusing. Everything you were familiar with in Windows XP has been changed or moved to another location and that makes it really hard to get your work done, doesn’t it? Well, lucky for all of us, there are a few things you can do to change everything back to the way it used to be. Read on for details!

I know this is starting to sound a lot like the Run command tip we ran last week, but I promise, it’s all new information. As I’m sure you already know, along with Vista came a whole new Start menu. And I’m guessing that some of you don’t care too much for it. If that’s the case, you can switch it back to the way it looked in XP. To do so, just right click on the Start button and choose Properties. Make sure you’re under the Start Menu tab and tick the option for Classic Start menu. Click OK and then check out your new Start menu. Now, doesn’t that feel better?!

Once you switch back to the old Start menu, you can also customize it. Hit the Customize button and you’ll see all the choices you have. You can add or remove items from your Start menu list, you can sort your items and so on and so forth. There’s even a checklist of different options you can choose from. For example, you can choose to display your favorites, display the Run command, expand the Control Panel, use the personalized menus, etc. There’s so many choices! When you’re done, just click OK twice and you’ll be all set. Ah, back to the old starting ways!
