Access the Toolbars submenu
In this edition of the Windows Desktop Report, Greg Shultz shows you how to create your own Classic Start Menu in Microsoft Windows 7 right alongside of the operating system's new Start Menu.
In order to create your own Classic Start Menu in Windows 7, you'll use the Toolbar feature. As you know, this feature has been a part of the Windows operating system for a long time and allows you to create Toolbars right on the Taskbar.
To begin, right click an empty spot on the Taskbar, hover over Toolbars, and select the New Toolbar command, as shown. (Take note of the Lock the taskbar command, you'll need to use it in the next step.)
