An alternative to the Windows Start menu, XStart aims to save time spent launching applications and programs. When minimized, it sits in your system tray. When you click the icon, a small window pops up and lets you drag and drop programs, files, and folders into it. You also can add files to XStart's program list via the Windows context menu. We appreciate that you can customize the program window in several ways. For instance, you can resize it, dress it up with several skins, and determine how big the icons should be. Though the program really does only one thing, some users may find they prefer using XStart instead of their PC's Start menu.
