Today we are going to show you how to customize the Windows 11 start menu, thanks to a tool called Start11 this is a really easy task. For years, Microsoft has been searching for the right start menu for its operating system without much success, but it continues to offer the option of reverting back to the old style in order to avoid criticism.
However, Windows 11 finally establishes a fixed model without the option of returning to the previous models, something that besides not having pleased many, has allowed the popularization of tools such as Start11.

And although the change in the new operating system is undoubtedly a revolution, not everyone likes the appearance of the new start menu focused on the functionality proposed by Windows 11.
Fortunately, after several beta versions, Start11 is finally available to allow us to customize Windows 11 with some of the most characteristic aspects of the current Windows 10 start menu, improving the taskbar experience for many users. However, since Microsoft has removed the Live Tiles functionality, unfortunately, we can still find some limitations for customization that will prevent us from a complete return to the previous model.

Still, the software provides a lot of customization tools for the Windows 11 Start menu and Start button, even allowing you to hide the new search bar. Although for those who want a quick fix, we will also have some predefined start menu templates to get the most out of Microsoft’s operating system such as support for pages in start menu layouts, enhanced search capabilities, and the ability to create shortcut links.
In addition, Start11 is also compatible with Windows 10, offering a reverse functionality to bring the changes of Windows 11 to the current operating system, allowing to center the taskbar and other new “tricks” of the new version.
However, this is not a free tool, you will have to pay $5.99 monthly for one computer, and there are higher offers for multiple computers. It may seem expensive, but it offers more customization options than Microsoft would allow anyway.
