Stardock Start11 application allows you to restore the Classic Start Menu in Windows 10/11. Replace the Start menu with a classic version. This Windows 7-style look is a comfortable return to the form and function you expect.

You can also customize the layout of the Start menu, adjust its size and location, tweak icons and more. Choose your favorite color for the Start menu and enjoy custom textures for your taskbar. An array of bundled images and textures let you personalize your PC.

In addition to the Start menu, using Stardock Start11 you can customize the Taskbar, including adjusting transparency, adding textures and more. Other options include tweaking Search, integration with other product from Stardock – such as Fences – and tweaking the mouse button and keyboard shortcuts.

Quick and convenient access to search means your desktop applications and new Universal applications are always accessible. If you are running with multiple monitors, you can add a Start menu to the secondary taskbar for always at hand access.

Top Current Features:

  • Choose from several Start menu layouts
  • Works on Windows 10/11
  • Integrate Stardock’s “Fences” into the Start Menu
  • Quickly access search on your desktop
  • Add color / texture to the Start menu and taskbar

  • Perform simple math problems in the search box
  • Additional style options
  • Enhanced productivity features
  • Improved configurability of Windows 7 / Modern modes

Changes in Stardock Start11

  • WinKey handling on the very latest Win11 builds improved so if the user is using Explorer patcher or using the right WinKey it will now support those.
