Easy to set and modify MS-DOS menu, friendly mouse driven interface, gives good old black screen DOS the feeling of a Windows operating system. Point and click, set and run.

Applications activated from the AlacartE MS-DOS menu have no additional memory constraints, as AlacartE does not remain resident during a program's execution. This means that the activated app operates exactly as if it were started from a DOS prompt, making use of the entire PC memory space.

There is absolutely no limit to the number of DOS commands, applications or games that may be started from the AlacartE menues. A hierarchy of multiple menu pages may easily be created and run. Each menu option may be protected by an encrypted password.

All colours, text and hotkeys are configurable. AlacartE is bundled with DOS screen savers that may be customised by, or for the user. Character User Interface (CUI) or Graphical User Interface (GUI) are both available. Sound effects may be switched on or off.

"Exit to DOS" may optionally be password protected, just like any other menu selection.

[F1] for Help.
[F2] for Setup.

I have been configuring AlacartE for about five hours now and I think the only limit to its utility is my own imagination.

Best and most stable menu program tried.
