Don’t just replace your Start Menu – revive it. Start Menu Reviver is designed for you, whether you just want a Start Menu back in Windows 8, or want to have more control in Windows 7.
Start Menu Reviver is the only choice that brings back the familiarity you’re accustomed to and embraces the enhancements in the future of Windows.

It is very small, it works fast and can be used on all Windows versions (9x/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008(R2)/Win7), even though Peeking requires Windows 2000 or later.
It is not a 100% copy of the Windows 7 features, but rather an improvement!… The Shake function shakes the window for you and the Peek function allows real access to the desktop instead of just showing it.

On top of this, version 1.50 added an all new function, called PeekTop: this only Peeks through “Always-On-Top” windows that might block your view and it makes the active window semi-transparent, so that you can work with it and read what’s underneath at the same time.
