8start Launcher Review

A review of 8start Launcher by Felix Cheng

8start Launcher is a Windows menu tool which can be enabled and setup within moments allowing you an alternative to the Windows start menu.

Ideally, 8start Launcher allows you to add many different items to its menus such as program shortcuts, documents, HTTP links, files, folders, favorites and more.

When you want to create a menu, the program allows you to categorize them, making them better organized. It also supports sub-categories and custom styles.

Once the categories are created, adding new items to them is as easy as using the right-click menu. Accessing the items in the menus is similar to the Window start menu we're all used to.

Overall, 8start Launcher is a great tool for improving the accessibility of your PC.
