Windows Vista Start Menu Enhancement

Start++

Start++ is an enhancement for the Start Menu in Windows Vista. It also extends the Run box and the command-line with customizable commands.  For example, typing “w Windows Vista” will take you to the Windows Vista page on Wikipedia!

Some more examples:

Typing “sudo” followed by a command will run that command with elevated (admin) privileges. Super handy from the command-line as well!

Advanced functions can work with search results, powered by Windows Vista’s integrated deskto

p search engine. For example, screen4.jpg

typing “play radiohead” will find all music that matches the query “radiohead”, compile the results into a .M3U file, and launch it in your favorite media player (actually, it only uses Windows Media Player for the moment, but that will change soon).

Some more screenshots are followed.
