In this wonderful world you can access programs, the Control Panel or Help & Support. You can do searches or get the “Run” box for launching programs and files. Best of all, it is customizable.

The XP Start menu has three main areas: on the left are shortcuts to favorite programs, on the right you find links to special folders and features, while at the bottom are your Log Off and Turn Off options.
