Article posted on 3/31/2015

Plymouth, Michigan – March, 31, 2015 – Stardock announced today that it is expanding the Start10 beta access to the general public. Start10 adds the familiar Windows 7 styled start menu that users are already familiar with to Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 operating system. With Start10, users can quickly access their most used items, get comprehensive search results on their PCs and personalize the look and feel of the start menu.

“Windows 10 offers great improvements over Microsoft’s past operating systems, but our user interface expertise compels us to continue providing our users with the tools to further improve their desktop user experience,” said Stardock President and CEO Brad Wardell. “Start10 is the first of many enhancements planned for Stardock’s catalog in 2015. We believe that users should be able to personalize every aspect of their PCs interface from aesthetics to functionality”

Start10 is the first Windows 10 compatible addition to Stardock’s growing Object Desktop library. Object Desktop itself is a collection of the world’s most popular desktop innovations and continues to evolve alongside users' needs and changes to Windows. In additon to Start10, Stardock is developing several new applications to support Microsoft Windows 10. Those projects will be added to Object Desktop at no additional charge once they are announced in the future.

The Start10 beta is available now for $4.99. The purchase includes access to the final release version which will be available the same day the final release of Windows 10 becomes available. To learn more visit
