We are excited to announce the immediate availability of version 2.3 of StartFinity Pro.

This is a minor update that corrects the following problem: on computers with more than one monitor, attaching an additional monitor did not always result in StartFinity start button to appear on the attached monitor.

To update your existing StartFinity installation, right-click on the StartFinity start button, choose Check for updates from the shortcut menu, and it should guide you through the update.

Or, go to the Download StartFinity page to download and install StartFinity 2.3 manually.

Happy computing!

We've received a great feedback from the users who downloaded StartFinity Pro. The number one question we heard was: why have a separate Apps menu, when you already have the Start Screen command? Why not combine them into a single item, and make more room for other useful commands on the Start Menu?

Well, dear faithful StartFinity users, your wild dream has come through: we have just released a new version and in this version the Apps menu has been merged into the Start Screen menu, just as you asked!

To update your existing StartFinity installation, right-click on the StartFinity start button, choose Check for updates from the shortcut menu, and it will guide you through the update.

Or, go to the Download StartFinity page to download and install StartFinity 2.1 manually.

StartFinity v.1.4 updated for Windows 8.1

Microsoft made a preview version of the upcoming Windows 8.1 available for free download earlier today, and we took this opportunity to update StartFinity, our Start Menu utility to version 1.4.

This is a minor update to StartFinity that corrects a few issues and makes StartFinity fully compatible with Windows 8.1. As before, if you have previously purchased StartFinity, you can download this update free of charge.

StartFinity, the missing Start Menu for Windows 8, is here

WinAbility Software has released StartFinity, a Windows 8 program that adds a Start button to Windows 8 desktop. When the Start button is pressed, StartFinity displays the Start Menu similar to the built-in Start menu of Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows. StartFinity enables Windows 8 users to utilize the familiar Start Menu interface to navigate to the Documents, Pictures, Music, and other folders, launch programs from the Programs menu, open Control Panel, or use the Shut Down menu commands to perform such tasks in a familiar fashion.

“While not the exact imitation of the Start Menu that Windows 7 has, StartFinity comes pretty close,” says Andrei Belogortseff, the founder and CEO of WinAbility Software. “The StartFinity Start Menu even comes with a search box where you can type a few letters of a program’s name you are looking for, and the matching items will be displayed as a list, for the user to choose from, pretty much like the Windows 7 search box does,” Andrei added.

StartFinity does not remove access to the new Start Screen of Windows 8: it adds a command at the very top of its Start Menu to allow the user to switch to the Start Screen at any time. The user has also an option to use the Windows key to activate the Start Menu (instead of clicking the Start button).

StartFinity can be used with both desktop and tablet computers running the Windows 8 operating system that offers the desktop mode. StartFinity cannot be used on Windows 8 computers that do not offer the desktop mode.

The full version of StartFinity can be purchased securely online from http://www.winability.com/ starting from $7.95 for a one-computer license. Multi-computer and site license discounts are available. StartFinity Starter edition is also available for free download from http://www.winability.com/startfinity-free/.
