SystemTrayMenu is an open source 'Desktop Toolbar' or 'Start Menu' alternative. It provides a clear, personalized menu that can be controlled via keyboard, mouse, or touchscreen. The menu organizes files, links, and folders in dropdown menus with multiple levels. You can adjust various options such as appearance, hotkey, autostart, and behavior.
Shortcuts to folders or network paths are resolved and displayed like folders. The search function allows you to define hotkey sequences to find and open items. The menu remains open if you start multiple applications and the mouse is still on the menu or if a script steals focus temporarily. The menu appears transparent when it doesn't have focus and closes automatically when you leave it. A scrollbar appears when there are too many items, which can be controlled using the mouse wheel. You can also drag and drop items to open them with an application or copy them to the desktop. Additionally, you can create URL shortcuts by dragging and dropping URLs from the browser into the menu.
