How to Change Start Menu to Classic View in Windows Vista

It you have been using Windows for a long time, you might have developed familiarity with the Start menu. It is your way to the Windows Control Panel, settings, search, mail and various handy features that you can access immediately.

However, in Windows Vista, the Start menu has been overhauled to give you more control and power to your Windows features with a single click. Despite that if you don’t like the Windows Vista’s Start menu just because you have become accustomed to the old one, you have an option. You can change your Windows 7’s Start menu to Classic View. Check the steps given below and do so: (Consider Windows Vista support)
1. Click the Start button> Control Panel> Appearance and Personalization> Taskbar and Start Menu.
2. In the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window, click the Start Menu tab. Select the Classic Start Menu button and click the OK button.
3. If you want to switch back to the Windows 7’s Start menu, de-select the Classic Start Menu radio button. Click OK to save changes.
***You can also change the Control Panel’s view to Classic. Find here Windows 7 support. If you are planning to upgrade to Windows 8, consider Windows 8 upgrade essentials.
