This really simple menu system is intended for situations where you want to create a really simple system for computer illiterate users to access some applications or documents. For example, a public kiosk. The buttons are big enough to use on a touch screen. The minimal display consists of a header area with title, sub-title and logo and the main area containing buttons with icons and captions. The menu can’t be accidentally closed, dragged, resized or hidden. Buttons are created by making Windows shortcuts. Customise the button caption, icon and target by editing the shortcut.

You can leave bug reports and ideas in the discussion forum. I’m developing a procedure to use Really Simple Menu as a Windows shell replacement so users of your kiosk don’t have access to the desktop, start menu etc. If you’re interested, drop me a note in the discussion forum.
