Hi all, is there any way to go back to the classic Linux Lite start menu? I was kinda used to the old one :)

Thanks.

You can  go back to the classic start menu. You can even run them both simultaneously, but first a small caution from Valtam

Thanks Scott, just keep in mind the Whisker Menu is preset to look and function a certain way for Linux Lite. If you remove it from the taskbar, you will lose that look and feel. Just letting folks know :)

To add the classic menu:

Rt lick on the panel > panel > panel preferences > items tab > click the plus(+) botton on right side of window > add "applications menu"

Applications menu will be inserted at the bottom of the items list which corresponds to the far right on the panel.

To move the applications menu click it once so it's selected and click the up arrow button next to the plus button to move it up the list which corresponds to moving to the left on the panel.

To remove the whisker menu click it once to select it and click the red x button near the plus button or you can leave the whisker menu and use them both.

Thanks Valtam. I've been experimenting and using them both. So far so good but if I notice anything I'll be sure to post the results.

Thanks so much Scott & Valtam. Thanks for letting me know about the risk also for losing the Whisker menu if I remove it. I will try it tonight.


Thank you!

One last question. Is there a way to permanently put the command move to folder when you right click on a file you want to copy? I have my Windows 7 OS and did a registry entry that puts the command move to folder and copy to folder, when you right click I wonder if you can do the same with Linux? Makes moving files easier :)

OK update I removed the Whisker menu and using the older classic one. One Thing I noticed it's a bit quicker when I click on the menu. I'm using a Netbook so there was a bit of a pause with the Whisker menu. As of now I love it, it's running great. :)

Thank you.
