I have been a Windows user for almost 10 years. I bought a MacBook yesterday. But I find the macOS 10.13 High Sierra is not very easy-to-use. Every time when I want to open an application I have to open the Launchpad first. Where is the start menu for macOS 10.13 High Sierra? I find an Apple icon on the left corner of the screen, but it is not the start menu. So I try to find a start menu software on the internet. I search free Mac start menu in Google. Frankly to say, there are not so many useful results. I have to open 5-7 links to find the right start menu for macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Fortunately, I find a useful one at the end.
