But I think that they're trying to get people to use search more, as when I do use the start menu, I just start typing the name of the item that I want, and it works.-wraith808 (February 20, 2020, 10:46 AM)
That's great ... when you know the name of the program you want, (I usually do but there are some I only use once in a blue moon).
If, for example, you install a program and you file it under a menu item that says 'Video' for video editors/codecs/etc (pre-8.0), it's a lot easier to just pick Video out of the menu list and see what you want out of a list of 10 or so, rather than everything installed on the computer.
I don't want every URL/read me/EULA/the name of every software manufacturer/the postman's dog/etc that program writers seem to think I want cluttering up the menu.
Generally I use a DOpus toolbar stuck on the Desktop, FARR, or Everything, rather than the thing they currently call a Start Menu.
