brings back the Classic Windows XP Start Menu Spencer offers an easy way to bring back the Classic Windows XP Start Menu to your Windows 8 computer. The program comes as standalone application and does not require any installation. Simply copy the spencer.exe file to your desktop and click on it to bring up a menu with all your current Start Menu entries. If you want to integrate it into your Taskbar to make it look more like a real Start Button, you can choose the "Pin to Taskbar" option from the right click menu and it will look and feel like a regular Windows Start button from old XP days. Look at our screenshots for details. Unlike the "real" Start Menu, Spencer does not offer any management features, which means you cannot right click on any entries for further options (edit, delete etc.). Copyright Snapfiles.com

Missing one key element 3 stars by DerellLicht Oct 12, 2022 (Read all my 21 reviews)
The original Windows XP Start Menu was a cascading menu - meaning that if a menu was too tall to fit on the screen, it would cascade out to multiple menus, side by side... that made the entire menu visible on the screen. Sadly, Spencer does not do this... if the Start Menu is taller than one screen (which Programs menu almost always is), this program is just as crippled as the recent Windows start menus have been. Very unfortunately. show Review details
