Editors' reviewLoad this application to hide the Windows Start button, but expect little gain from that extra inch of space. Start Killer has no interface except for a single options dialog. This program simply removes the Windows Start button from your desktop. It can load on system start or as an application. Users can still use CTRL-ESC to open the Start menu after using this utility. Start Killer can be configured to disable the Start menu. We didn't find much use for removing the Start button, but some users may find it saves them from accidentally clicking the menu open. This is a program in search of a need. Though every level of user can operate Start Killer, only experienced users need the extra inch of taskbar space freed by this freeware application.
