Icant use iobit because it interferes with certain programs on my computer. However, I LOVED the start menu there, and this one feels very cluttered to me. I was wondering if anyone could make/direct me to a skin that looks similar. Oh, and also: How do I increase the size of the start menu? It seems so small.

Thanks again. This is the start menu I want mimicked: the button looks dumb on that one though, i would prefer the button look like this: thank you again!

Download and try the skin attached to this post. The item spacing in the right column is increased in this skin so the items are farther apart. Download it to the Desktop and then copy it and paste it to C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\Skins.

Then open Classic Start Menu settings by right clicking the Start button -> Settings. Check the checkbox at the top "Show all settings" and switch to the Skin tab and pick the skin 'Windows 8 Skin with Wider Spacing'.

Next, you can go to the "Customize Start Menu" tab and hide/show any items you don't want.

To increase the size of the Start menu vertically, look for the setting "Minimum menu height" on the Main Menu tab of Settings.

You can also adjust the programs pane width setting.

This is widely spaced enough to not feel cluttered.
