Trivia

  • In the earlier version, the Begin Menu will say "Start".

  • From September 12, 2020 to September 13, 2020, all of the Begin Menu information has been moved to ProgressbarOS. This, however, has been brought back in September 13, 2020, in response to Seafoxlrt616's complaint about EpicAlexisMaxwell's mass merging activity (which is mainly with the use of the tabber function).

Nothing is missing. Everything is good!
