Ever since the release of Windows 95, the Start menu has become an integral part of the lives of most Windows users.

The start menu in Windows 7 has been redesigned to simplify the user experience. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:

The desktop themes are more advanced, and also gives you the option to select multiple background images (wallpapers) that keep changing automatically at a specified fixed interval (similar to webshots).
