It brings back the classic start menu that Windows 7 doesn’t support, adds a toolbar for Windows Explorer in Vista and Windows 7 like the one in Windows XP and adds couple more smaller features.” Here is a list of its most important key features:

  • It brings back the old, good, classic Start menu available in all versions of Windows from 95 to Vista. Such a features contain some very useful options which can help you in a lot of ways. Among the most important one, I would like to highlight: show Favorites, expand Control Panel, drag-and-drop to organize your applications and recently used documents.
  • Classic plug-in for Windows Explorer. It adds some interesting features to Windows Explorer such as : Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Properties, Email.
  • Replaces the copy UI in Vista and Windows 7 with the more user-friendly “classic” version similar to Windows XP.
  • It customize the folder panel to look more like the one in  Windows XP.
  • Classic Toolbar in Windows Explorer.
  • Add the famous up button in the title bar of Explorer.
