For those who want things just like they were in the good old days, like listening to vinyl records, dialing on a rotary phone, or revving the engine of a 1968 Ford Mustang, it may seem like those days are gone. That includes the classic Windows Start Menu that helped introduce millions to personal computers. However, thanks to the new Stardock Start 10, you can actually bring back the appearance of the classic Windows Start Menu for only a few dollars.

The Stardock Start 10 is a program that is free for the first 30 days and then only costs $4.99. It is a plugin that is very easy to install with no complicated instructions or even a reboot. As soon as you have it installed on your Windows 10, you can open up the Start menu and you’ll be taken back to the days of Windows 7 which was the last to offer the classic appearance.

The Stardock Start 10 offers a number of options for you to use starting with which particular appearance do you want for your Windows.

  • Classic
  • New
  • Fusion

The fusion offers a combination of both the old and new Windows which let you use different colors, tweak the size of the icons, and even configure new options for your taskbar and the Start menu as a whole. Almost by default there is an automatic shortcut to all of the Universal Applications included in the program.
