Organize Your Windows Start Menu with SMOz

unorganized start menuAs a blogger and tech geek, I have found my start menu getting out of control from time to time due to all of the programs and applications that I download. SMOz is a great program that will help you easily organize your start menu and reduce your clutter.

SMOz is extremely easy to use and makes that start menu reorganization you’ve been wanting to do take just a few minutes.

SMOz comes with a default template that is good right out of the box. The default template has nine different categories and will automatically place some of the more common programs in places they should go (i.e. iTunes in Multimedia).

Programs that are not classified are left in an empty category and can be easily dragged to the destination of your choice.

Your changes are also not made until you apply them, so you can play around with it and make sure you get all of your categories just right.

Here is the finished product after only a couple of minutes of work with SMOz.

Now, that is much more manageable.

It is a given that you are going to download more programs and applications in the future, and there is no need to worry as they will enter the Start Menu properly. All you need to do to organize new programs is open up SMOz and drag the new programs out of the empty category into the appropriate category.
