Start10 1.97.1

The first Windows 10 Start menu alternative

Stardock has released Start10, a Start menu alternative which replaces Microsoft’s Windows 10 Start menu with one that will make former Windows 7 users feel at home. This is a product that should not need to exist. Following widespread protest at the full-screen Start in Windows 8, Microsoft pulled back in Windows 10 and reverted to a corner-of-the-desktop affair; but it is still not as good as it should be.
