SyMenu is an alternative start menu with access to online repositories of applications
While the Microsoft hard grind components are now ready to release version of Windows 10, the creators of the alternative start menu as if nothing had happened, continue to promote their products. Most of these programs is widespread, but some of them remain in the shadows. One such tool is the SyMenu is a small app, but rather a utility designed to «replace» the classic start menu of different Windows versions.
The word «replacement» we took the quotes, because SyMenu doesn’t replace the start menu in the full sense of the word as do some programs and creates an alternative. That is, after starting the program you will be able to choose which menu to use. SyMenu allows you to perform almost all the same actions as the standard menu: start programs, including portable, open files and folders, to access applets in the control Panel and other features.
Alternative start menu is not require installation. When you first start you will be prompted to select the language, define the Manager hot keys to adjust the font size menu. After that, the program will minimize to tray, while creating on the desktop a translucent label with which you will be able to call alternative menu. Open menu from the tray, here it is as someone more convenient.
System programs are written in menu SyMenu automatically. The only exceptions are Metro apps to run them you still have to use the start menu. As for portable programs, then they will need to add the menu manually, use the option «Configuration». And SyMenu can be used as a simple file Manager that supports viewing hidden folders and files. However neither copy, nor move items in the file system is not supported. They can only be opened or viewed using the computer’s installed programs.
But the most interesting feature of the app is the built-in Manager SPS download and install portable apps from three online repositories, and downloaded all of the programs are automatically written in the menu SyMenu. A similar function is performed by a built-in PAF program suite plugin. It can also be used to download and install free software from the online repositories.
Of other capabilities and features of this app include the availability of the built-in search, added sorting of portable programs in groups, create text descriptions, setting hotkeys, managing startup, setting the «mouse» gestures.
