Personalizing the Start Menu

Although Windows 7 does not offer a "classic" Start menu as found in Windows XP and Windows Vista, it offers plenty of other personalization options.

Figure 4-9 Options and check boxes on the Start Menu tab of the Taskbar And Start Menu Properties dialog box let you control the default action of the Power button and erase evidence of what you've been doing at your computer.

Many more options become available when you click Customize to display the Customize Start Menu dialog box, shown in Figure 4-10 .
