Well, Windows 8.1 is still supported. So you could use that.

And as far as I know you can enable this functionality within Windows 10 as well.

Thanks Shades.
What I need is a menu launcher with rectangles in color.
Each rectangle is an option to launch a program, file or folder.
Is not for substitution of the start menu.
is an independent portable menu.

Edit P.D. : In each rectangle or figure i can write text to explain the use or area to explain. Fully configurable.
I want to use large figures (rectangles) to write long text. Each rectangle is an option .

 :-\ I am tired of the searching.
I can try with a pdf and linkable rectangles.
Or in word with linkables rectangles
Freemind is possible but I don't know how to draw rectangles.
Perhaps with a diagram program. May be DIA ?
Running to try !!!!!!

You might be able to use Ath's WinButtons program.

Thanks Skwire. I will try inmediately.
I was trying with ToDoList (a wonderful program for me nowadays ) with the .rtf files. To make in the rtf format a mosaic menu or similar modern ui , but is not possible directly . Then try in word and copy and paste, but obtain strange results.....

The first of july 2012 i download this wonderful program and I write a comment not to be reproduced here because I was searching for other similar application.
Now in the 2019 even the examples included with the program are splendid.

Thanks Ath !!!

I'm glad you appreciate it. :Thmbsup:
It can be rather complex to configure, though, that's why I included the examples ;)
