Meet Start11, A powerful Tool to Enhance and Make your Start Menu on Windows 11 More Useful


On October 5, 2021, Microsoft announced Windows 11, the successor to Windows 10, which came with a set of features and aesthetic UI changes. On the other hand, it lacked a set of features that were in its predecessor, including the ability to customize the Start menu and taskbar.

The taskbar and the Start menu in Windows 11 come with very limited customization options, as you can do almost nothing else in the Start menu other than pin or unpin applications on it, while the taskbar does not have any customization option when right-clicking on it at all. And if the various settings that Windows 10 offered can be accessed by right-clicking on its taskbar from Windows 11 settings, the latter does not contain any useful settings for the Start menu

Fortunately, there is an app that enables you to get a much more useful start menu with great customization and many features. This app is called Star11, and it is provided by Stardock.


Star11 is an application that enables the user to enhance the power of the Start Menu in Windows 11 by providing it with a set of features that are not found in the menu that Microsoft included with the system, such as the ability to group applications within folders and arrange app icons freely within the menu. In addition, the app also provides the classic and familiar layout option of the Start menu found in Windows 7 or Windows 10. 

The application enables users to easily create a folder directly within the Start Menu by holding down the Shift key and dragging an icon over another, they can also customize the name of these folders, or move them to another page if the user's Start menu contains many pages. Applications can also be arranged into groups or uninstalled by right-clicking the app icons.


The user can set the flat corners of the Start menu instead of the default rounded corners in Windows 11 or launch the menu in full-screen mode (for the Windows 10 and Windows 11 style layout) within the settings of the Star11 application.

Whiting the app settings, users can also modify the taskbar transparency, size, color, and blur, or move it to the top, and the app helps restore the taskbar context menu found in Windows 10.

Star11 can also change the transparency and size of the Start menu, manage the list of shortcuts or folders that appear on the side (or bottom) of the menu, and set the size of application icons.


Start11 is available for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users, and it can be purchased from its official website for as cheap as $5.99. If you want to try it before buying, the website also offers a 30 days trial free version to test the software.
