Start10
An alternative Start menu for Windows 10

Start10 is a very configurable Start menu alternative for Windows 10.

A quick and easy installation immediately gives you a Windows 7-style menu, complete with Search box, an "All Programs" menu, links to your Windows 10 apps, and no live tiles at all.

If that doesn't work for you, options to display the menu in a Modern or Windows 10 style might help it to fit in better with the rest of the operating system.

Each menu style can be tweaked in various ways. You're able to define a custom Start button, apply textures to the menu and taskbar, set icon and tile sizes, transparency, and more.

Start10 doesn't completely take over your system, either. If you've a problem with it, pressing the right Windows key or Ctrl+clicking the Start button will display the regular Windows 10 Start menu, and there are options to make this even easier (you could set the Start button to display Start10, say, while pressing the Windows key displayed the standard menu).

What's new in 1.60?

- Updated for Windows 1803 to fix searching in start menu
- Added new blur option for Windows 1803 (on by default)
- Links to the Games and Homegroup folders on Windows 1803 will not work(Microsoft deprecated those locations)

Verdict:

Start10 is easy to use, configurable and looks good. But if you're just looking for a simple Windows 7-style menu, Classic Shell may give you everything you need for free.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
