IObit Start Menu 8 is a free Windows 7 style start menu designed for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. It offers the option to skip Modern UI, allowing users who only work on desktop to boot to Windows 8 desktop directly.

 

Version 2 includes options to display recently opened applications and ability to manually pin shortcuts and executables to the start menu with a right-click. Other new features include customisable transparency, syncing of user and account pictures and high DPI support.

Looks like a child made it in MS Paint, what's with the dodgy fonts?

I think they tried to make the start menu as simple as possible. It looks good to me. Btw, what's wrong with the font?

A very nice alternate to Stardock Start8.

Take a look at the fonts in your windows install vs that screenshot, the fonts are even bigger than these forum fonts - looks like one of those old hacked XP lites people made decades ago

 

It's paid (Cheap), but after trying every single free start menu replacement, I settled with "StartIsBack", a perfect replica, perfect fonts, perfect functionality, and integrates into Windows as if it was part of Windows, just like Win 7's menu

The text in the screenshot is as big and they are in my Windows 7 start menu. I have set my DPI to Medium (125%).

 

May be OP is also using high DPI.
