The introduction of the brand new Taskbar in Windows 7 modified how (many) Windows customers loaded functions on their units.
The capacity to pin applications (and other things) instantly to the taskbar allowed them to bypass the Start Menu totally after they needed to launch these applications. While Windows provided an choice to achieve this pre-Windows 7, by putting shortcuts on the desktop, it was the Start Menu that was utilized by many for that.
The Start Menu continues to be helpful, even in Windows 10 because it presents entry to all put in applications and different options. Some customers choose to set up Start Menu replacements, a bunch of applications that got here to prominence shortly after the discharge of Windows eight. Programs like Classic Shell (not in growth), Classic Start, or Start10 all re-introduced traditional reinterpretations of the Start Menu.
One factor that you could be discover when utilizing the Start Menu is that it closes routinely when you choose an entry, e.g. load a program that’s pinned to it. If you needed to begin two applications from the Start Menu, or a program and the Settings app, you’d have to open the Start Menu twice as Windows closes it routinely after you make a choice
Starting a single utility from Start might be what most customers do more often than not after they use the Start Menu. But what if you would like to begin multiple applications or instruments from the Start Menu?
Turns out, there’s an choice to do exactly that. All you want to do is maintain down the Windows-key on the keyboard when you choose applications from the Start Menu. The Start Menu will not shut routinely while you’re protecting the Windows-key pressed.
Note: Holding down the Windows-key doesn’t work on Windows 7 to maintain the Start Menu open whereas you choose functions or instruments to begin. I didn’t check this on a Windows eight.1 machine.
So, if you would like to begin multiple applications or instruments from the Start Menu, simply keep in mind to maintain down the Windows-key to do exactly that. (through Win Aero)
