What is Start++?

Start++ is an enhancement for the Start Menu in Windows Vista. It also extends the Run box and the command-line with customizable commands. For example, typing “w Windows Vista” will take you to the Windows Vista page on Wikipedia!


Typing “sudo” followed by a command will run that command with elevated (admin) privileges. Super handy from the command-line as well.
