AlacartE menu system provides a friendly interface for the DOS environment. Preset menu lets the novice user avoid time consuming navigation through DOS directories in order to invoke various commands. Advanced users will benefit, as the menu system requires fewer key-strokes for routine launching business, games, or educational programs, backups or just viewing, playing music or printing. Options activated from the AlacartE menu have no memory constraints, as AlacartE does not remain resident during programs execution. This means that the activated option operates exactly as if it were started from a DOS prompt, making use of the entire available memory space. There is no limit to the number of programs that may be started from AlacartE menus. Hierarchy of multiple menus may easily be created. Mouse or keyboard driven. All colors, text, and hotkeys configurable. Screen savers may be customized. Sound on or off. Optional password on menu option inclusive on exit to DOS.
