Using this piece of software, you can incorporate a Quick Access menu into some Windows editions. Moreover, you may add new or remove existing shortcuts.
WinplusX is a compact and unobtrusive program for Windows designed to enhance the user experience of older Microsoft OS versions like XP, Vista, and 7. It accomplishes this by integrating a Quick Access menu into the taskbar.
If the term Quick Access menu is unfamiliar to you, you might still be frequently using a similar feature on Windows 8 or 10. This interface component can be reached by right clicking the start button or via the Win+X keyboard shortcut.
The software does not need to be installed on a computer. You only have to deploy NET Framework 4.0 or a later version on your system to use it. The solution seamlessly embeds in your taskbar, adding a small icon.
