Start Menu Reviver Portable, Start better!!
"It's hard to think of a feature the menu left out, yet it manages to pull it off without feeling too cluttered. For those reasons and more, it gets my thumb's up." —C|Net (May 2012)
"I said it before, and I'll say it again — Start Menu Reviver is such a great melding of the old and new user interfaces, that if Microsoft had put something like this in Windows 8 from the get-go, they sure would have saved themselves a lot of grief." —Greg Shultz, (May 9, 2014, 8:35 AM PST)
"Start Menu Reviver's name is a bit of a misnomer, because this free app does more than simply bring back the Start Menu. The utility incorporates the look and feel of the Modern UI into an intuitive, customizable interface. If you're willing to plunk down $5, Start8, another Start Menu replacement app, is a bit more polished, and offers a Windows 7 "throwback" experience that many want. But if you want a start menu replacement app that gets the job done without making a dent in your pocketbook, Start Menu Reviver is the best free offering on the market today." —Anthony Domanico, (May 15, 2013)
Start Menu Reviver is the only Start menu that truly combines the familiar navigation structure of previous Start menus with the unique tile design of Microsoft's new modern Windows direction.

SmillaEnlarger Portable, enlarge images with ease!
"There’s nothing magical about what this program does, of course; it merely applies filters and you could in theory do the same using your favorite image editor; however, over the years I have found it extremely useful, and have been going back to it over and over again." —Samer Kurdi, (May 24, 2012)
" SmillaEnlarger sports a useful set of options dedicated to image resizing and conversion, and it should meet the requirements of most users. Its interface needs some work, though." —Elena Opris, (December 2nd, 2013)
"Very good for free" —TCHUR (a user), (31 Aug 2011)
SmillaEnlarger is a handy tool to enlarge small dimension images.
