Labrys is a replacement for the Windows Start menu and Run dialog.
Unlike many other Start menu enhancement applications, Labrys does not mimic the layout or visual appearance of Start menus existing prior to Windows 8. Instead, Labrys uses fresh approaches to provide rapid access to applications and command-line utilities.
Labrys Start Menu Features:
Uncompromised user interface that is good for keyboard, mouse and touch.
Fast navigation in applications list with alphabetical index.
