You may not like the way Vista works, but you have to admit it does have some nice features. One of them is the new Start menu with an embedded search field that enables you to open any file or application by just typing the first few letters of its name.

This convenient function has now been replicated for Windows XP in Vistart, a small app that requires no installation and emulates Vista's Start menu in Windows XP.

Vistart is perfectly integrated in XP and works very well, although we missed some other Vista features such as the ability to move up and down the menu with arrow keys or having support for right clicking.

Try it in combination with any of the Vista-inspired

en. softonic. com/">visual themes available at Softonic and you'll be able to enjoy a fully Vista themed Windows XP.

Now everyone can enjoy the benefits of fast program searching straight from their Start Menu, with ViStart. This smalll app brings you the Vista Start Menu for your Windows XP, by replacing your existing XP Start Menu.

ViStart is skinnable, and that means you easily can make your own skins for ViStart because you can change everything in ViStart. Customizing features are almost unlimited.
