Now let's talk about the Start Button. This looks the same as in previous versions, especially Windows Vista and if you left-click it you will notice it's laid out very similar to previous versions OK, especially Vista. Notice there's a little blue line right here and all these are things that I have Pinned to the Start Bar and the way you Pin these things, if you go into All Programs right here I can grab anything. For example Power Point, I can right-click say Pin it to the Taskbar which would out it down here or I can Pin it to the Start Menu and now I can go back and you'll notice that I now have Power Point here OK? And I can grab this and just move it around and put it anywhere I would like it to go and I can reorder those things, OK? Now for the most part all other customization on the Start Menu is going to happen by right-clicking the Start Menu and going to Properties and notice where that takes you. It takes you actually to the same place as right-clicking on the Taskbar and going to Properties, it just pre-selects the Start Menu Tab for you. One really cool function here is on laptops I can set the Power Button Action or this is especially handy for laptops. Because if I hit the Power Button it'll put it to sleep as opposed to shutting it down or restarting or whatever. Under Privacy I can choose these as to whether or not I want to store and display recently opened items in the Start Menu. You can also control this kind of stuff through Group Policy. But all other changes to customizations happen on the Customize Tab, OK? Now, let me just tell you that if you turn both of those on right here and I haven't opened enough files, OK? But when I right-click in my Jump Menu I can see recently opened files, they'll be a section here, OK? It's not there now because it's a live demo and anyway. Now if I click on the Customize Button everything that I need to customize on the Start Bar is here. If I scroll down, I want to show you a couple of them. First of all by default you will notice that you don't see a Run Menu right here. Now most Administrators turn this off in Group Policy but if you need this thing, right-click the Start Menu, the Start Button, go out here, Customize and come down here and you will see the Run Command, just turn that On and now you'll see it next time. The other strange one is Recent Items, OK? If I have Recent Items and I want to clear those, if you remember in previous versions you had a button out here where you could clear these things. Now to clear them you just have to clear the switch and OK, and it will clear your Recent Items OK, and you can come back and turn it on. And I will leave the rest of these, you can go through and just play with these and see the various changes you can make. Now notice from our Recent Items I can se the number of Recent Items to Display, easily change this and I can set the number of Recent Items to Display in my Jump List. And so I can change those with a little Toggle Switch here, OK? And then if I really mess it up, pass the point of recognition and I don't know how to get it all back I can click this to go back to Default Settings, OK? Now one of the things that you're going to hear and you're going to see complaints about it is we can't any longer get back to that Classic Start Menu, OK? All I'll tell you here is go out to Google, go look at some of the blogs out there, no doubt there's a Registry Hack, there's going to be somebody to figure out some way, if not just write something to give you that Classic Start Menu back. But out of the box according to Microsoft it can't happen or at least I haven't seen it yet, OK? Notice I turned On the run box and so my Run Command is there now and so I can see that. So anyway the Start Menu has changed somewhat but basically it's the same thing it's always been. Now, just a little aside also and I'm already seeing this out there, if you want to change this from this Windows Logo to a picture of yourself or your dog to whatever, then you can change this and there's all kind of tweaks out there for how to change the Start Menu Button. That's an unsupported feature if you blew up your system doing that it's not my fault, you're responsible here, OK? But - it's also not supported by Microsoft but if you want to change that go Google that stuff and you can, OK? So that's a real quick look at the Start Button in Windows 7.
