10 Things You Can Do with Your New StartMeStick!

The StartMeStick is a great tool to breathe new life into an old computer so that you can keep your old computer, save money, and reduce waste with this fast, private, and secure operating system on a stick. Now that you have your own StartMeStick you might be wondering what you can do with it – look no further! Here are 10 things you can do with your new StartMeStick.

1. Save Money & Breathe New Life Into an Old Computer

Have a computer that turns on to a blue screen? How about another one that is so slow you cannot do anything on it?

A StartMeStick will breathe a new life into these old computers so you can use them once again, all day, every day. It also works on both Mac and Windows computers!

This is very helpful considering the current laptop shortage globally.

2. Securely Shop Online & Do Your Online Banking

If you’ve ever heard of a keylogger, you’ll know that it’s a very powerful virus that runs in the background of your computer – keeping track of everything you type including online banking usernames and passwords.

When you use the StartMeStick, it’s very unlikely you could be affected by viruses such as keyloggers, or any malicious threat that could be hiding in your computer. That’s because the StartMeStick is designed with security (and you) in mind.

We recommend using StartMeStick to do your online shopping and banking.

The StartMeStick OS is an enhanced, slimmed down, Linux-based operating system. The slimmed down software and corresponding complexity reduces the potential vulnerabilities and surface area for attack. And because it’s an open source software, the StartMeStick’s source code is constantly being updated to fix any underlying security issues.

With this in mind, we recommend doing all your online shopping, banking and browsing with peace of mind knowing you’re secure!

3. Stop Worrying About Viruses

Are you constantly worried about accidentally clicking on something and getting a virus on your computer? If you don’t have an antivirus program in place, or if you are worried you might accidentally click on a malicious link, then the StartMeStick is the right device for you.

Use a StartMeStick and stop worrying about viruses!

As we mentioned earlier, the StartMeStick is Linux-based operating system and the number of “in the wild” threats for Linux-based operating systems are way lower than other operating systems from Apple or Microsoft. All of this plus the fact that the StartMeStick doesn’t save anything makes it nearly impossible to infect the StartMeStick with a virus.

However, if you’re ever concerned that your StartMeStick has somehow been compromised, you can simply factory upgrade it from a known clean computer to get it back to its ‘fresh out of the box’ state. With the StartMeStick you can confidently browse the internet to your heart’s content.

4. Enjoy a Private Browsing Session that Leaves no Trace

If you are tired of constantly deleting your internet history or clearing your browser to get rid of tracking cookies, that’s what the StartMeStick is for.

When you shut down your computer at the end of a session, StartMeStick goes back to a “brand new” state. That’s because StartMeStick doesn’t store any of your browsing histories.

5. Share Your Computer Safely With Kids

If you have children who regularly use your computer to browse the internet – consider giving them their own StartMeStick instead.

That way, there are no risks of your children:

  • Deleting important documents or applications from your computer
  • Clicking on something and infecting your computer with a virus
  • Downloading ‘grayware’ i.e. applications that are annoying or undesirable but don’t fall into the category of major virus threat

The StartMeStick doesn’t interfere with your computer’s files and applications so there’s no chance that they can make any changes to your regular operating system.

6. Save the Environment

Once you toss an old computer to the curb its life does not end there. It often ends up in an electronic graveyard where metals and toxic waste leak into the surrounding environment.

With the StartMeStick, give your old computers another chance by extending their life. You can learn more ways on how to extend the life of your computer here.

For Windows 7 users, remember that on Jan 14, 2020, Microsoft ended support for all Windows 7 systems and Microsfot no longer recommends you use those computers online. Give these older computers another chance with your StartMeStick!

7. Watch Blazing Fast Videos And Video Call Online

Do you ever want to go online to watch your favorite show or video call a distant friend or relative but it takes forever to turn on your computer and open a browser? Maybe once you’re connected your video freezes or glitches which makes connecting with family and friends difficult?

Save time with the StartMeStick. Simply plug it in and it turns any computer into a speedy one. It never slows down because it doesn’t collect the junk that causes frustrating errors, crashes, freezes, and slowdowns. It is like brand new every time you use it so you can always binge your favorite shows and video call your favorite people!

8. Speed Print Your Documents

If you have a slow computer that you use to print your documents, it might be counterproductive to wait 15 minutes for that computer to turn on and another 10 minutes for that computer to open and load the document. You can avoid this hassle with the help of the StartMeStick.

Simply start the StartMeStick on a Mac or Windows computer, open your document, and hit print! No more wasting your time waiting for your computer to load to be able to print that important document or picture.

9. Lighten up Your Backpack or Purse

Stop bringing a chunky laptop with you to work or school!

Simply place a StartMeStick on your keychain, find any public computer, and you can enjoy your very own online browsing session.

Don’t worry, the StartMeStick will not interfere or modify the host computer. Whether you are using your friend’s computer or a library computer, simply shut down the StartMeStick after your session and the host computer will go back to the way it was.

10. Work Online Without Distractions

If you have a lot of applications installed on your computer, especially social media or games, these applications may distract you when you are doing online work or research by constantly sending you notifications.

With StartMeStick, turn these online work periods into highly productive work sessions. You will not receive any notifications that you’d normally get on your regular operating system so you can stay focused!

      Hi Neal, thanks for your interest! The pricing differs depending on your location and subscription. Scroll down to the bottom of this web page to see how much it costs in your location.

  1. Chuck -

    Why is the price different depending on our location? I don’t like the sounds of that and I’ve had Fix Me Stick for years.

    • Linda -

      Hi Chuck, if you place your order in the US, you should get the prices in USD. If you place your order in the United Kingdom, you should see prices in GBP. Same for Canada. There are also different tax rates in different states and countries, so that’s why you will see a different price depending on where you are located.

    • Linda -

      Hi Cheryl, thanks for your interest! There are different types of subscription for the StartMeStick. To view their respective costs, click here and choose “Buy StartMeStick”.

  2. Bob Smith -

    Have purchased a different product, Xtra-PC, which is suppose to bring new life to old computers. Is this like your product, or is StartMestick better?

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hey Bob,

      Thanks for reaching out! Xtra-PC is very similar to the StartMeStick. What’s great about the StartMeStick is that we use the same booting technology as the FixMeStick to make getting into the operating system fast and foolproof. The StartMeStick also automatically connects to the Internet so you can go online easily. If you want to compare them you can give the StartMeStick a try for 30 days. Check it out here: http://www.startmestick.com!

  3. Sharon Holliday -

    Now, every time I try to use the Start Me Stick I purchased, it locks up my computer and my computer beeps and won’t turn on. Any advice?

    • Jody -

      I work in the Adobe suite from my desktop. Will the start me stick help me with the lag I sometimes get when working with InDesign or photoshop?

      • Linda -

        Hi Jody, please note that StartMeStick uses a Linux operating system and is mainly designed to give you a fast, private, and secure way to browse online. This means you will need a Linux version of an application (in your case, Adobe suite) to be installed on StartMeStick if you want to use it on the StartMeStick. If you have further questions, please leave us a message here.

    • Linda -

      Hi there, simply fill in your billing and shipping address on our online store and you should see an updated price based on your location!


    how can I return to my windows 7 screen after using start me stick!!!!! It will not go back
    to original screen

    • Linda -

      Hi Elizabeth, sorry to see that! Simply click on the StartMeStick logo (with the letter ‘S’) on the bottom left corner, and then click on “Shut down”. After that, your computer should shut down and you’ll just have to turn it back on again to get back into your regular computer.

    • Linda -

      Hi there, I’m not sure which subscription model you are looking at. But generally, if you purchase the 2-year subscription for any of our products, it will cost more initially but will save you money in the long run as the cost/month is lower.

  5. Hazel -

    Hello, just wondering if this will work on my Imac hard drive failure?

    • Linda -

      Hi Hazel, yes! The StartMeStick is designed to give a second life to these computers. If it does not work for any reason, we offer a 45-day refund policy for orders purchased directly from our website so you can try it risk-free!

  6. Thomas Sekersky -

    hi.. do i keep the stick plugged in all the time the computer is turned on or after i have used it once it is good for how long on that computer..how many computers can i use the same stick on… thanks for understanding.. it doesnt state what to do in the instructions.. Thomas

  7. Marc -

    I have the startmestick and i do not like it. The reason is because have to shut down the computer everytimr i want to go back to the window system. I would like to be able to go online and switch back to my desktop without restarting the computer.

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hi Marc,

      Thanks for the feedback. Part of what makes the StartMeStick secure and private is that it runs from the USB stick. Sorry that it’s not for you!


        • Linda -

          Hi Brian, as long as this Windows XP computer has functioning hardware, then StartMeStick should work! Specifically, the system requirements are Intel and AMD processors released after 2001.

  8. YC -

    I have a Start Me Stick and Fix Me Stick (love this one) but was thinking about returning the START ME STICK because when I go in it I don’t know what to do with it. I checked YOU TUBE for helpful videos but nothing there. The question I have is, do I need to work in the START ME STICK as if I am starting in a new computer??… I mean do I have to put in all my passwords in all of the things I open ex: emails, bank, netflix, prime video, etc, etc EVERY TIME I go in with START ME STICK as this was never mentioned in the Q&A page. If yes, would that be a loss of time every time I use to put passwords, etc? One last question, I have a laptop which does not want to open, I believe it is the start button which does not work. Would START ME STICK open the laptop? Thank you for your help.

  9. Richard -

    I bought Startmestick to do private banking. My bank wants an access card NUMBERS. Startmestick only accepts letters. Can you help?

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hi Richard,

      Can you please send us an email to support@StartMeStick.com so we can look into this for you? Please include the serial number from the side of your StartMeStick.


  10. Terry Lynch -

    I have an old clunker laptop running on Vista, tried the Start-me stick, but it didn’t seem to work, unless I’m doing something wrong (which is more than possible!)

  11. Georges Sylvestre -

  13. Jerry Walter -

    I feel really secure using this on windows 7. I have no issues using this product. I would recommend this product.

  14. Ash -

    I bought the startmestick and it did not work. No matter what I tried I could not get it to run on my computer. I tried several times to get you to fix my problem and each and every time, your solutions failed. I still have the physical product but have not attempted to try it again. Is there anything new on this front? Have you found some glitches which you have corrected?

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hi Ash,

      We’re always working to improve the compatibility. Can you please send us an email with the serial number from the side of your StartMeStick so we can look into this for you? You can email us at support@StartMeStick.com.


  15. RD Michaels -

    Several questions, please. Can I retrieve files, photos, etc. from my PC’s hard drive or flash drive and save files to the PC’s hard drive and flash drives? Are files interchangeable; can files be saved on the StartMeStick? Can it modify my PC to speed it up? Thank you for your considerations and prompt response.

    • Linda -

      Hi there, thanks for your interest! Depending on your computer the StartMeStick may be able to read files saved on the hard drive, but any changes made to files on your hard drive are not possible, as StartMeStick is designed to prevent the user or viruses from making changes on the host computer. However, you may be able to transfer files from your computer’s hard drive onto another external device with the help of StartMeStick. The StartMeStick does not modify or change anything on your computer as it simply gives you a separate operating system. If you have further questions, feel free to leave us a message here.

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hi Mike, the 1 Year StartMeStick is $69.99 USD/$79.99 CAD.

  16. Marc Renaud -

    Bonjour !

    You say that we can print Word documents with startmestick.

    What about PDF files ? I sometimes receive or find on websites documents that are available only in PDF format.

    What other file formats can be printed ?

    Have a nice day

    • Linda -

      Hi Marc, you should be able to print the PDF file from StartMeStick by adding your printer using these instructions. We don’t have a list of any specific file types but if you find that you are having issues printing a type, feel free to send us a message here and we’ll be happy to assist you.

  17. Marc Renaud -

    Please note that this is a personal opinion for which I have no proofs.

    Vous dites qu’il faut utiliser un CLOUD pour pouvoir imprimer un document à partir de Smartstick.

    Personnellement, je n’utilise pas de CLOUD pour deux raisons bien simple :

    1 – J’ai le contrôle sur mon disque dur et les logiciels que j’utilise pour le protéger.
    Ce n’est pas le cas des CLOUDS !

    2 – Le CLOUD facilite totalement la vie des GAFA qui veulent – et plus que probablement le font – écumer nos fichiers à la recherche d’informations qu’ils peuvent revendre.
    Nous n’avons AUCUNs CONTRÔLEs sur les CLOUDS et ces dernier évitent que les GAFA viennent fouiller dans nos disques durs ce qui est illégal.

    Pour ce qui est de votre procédure à suivre pour imprimer, ça prend bien plus que les 15 minutes pour l’exécuter…….Dans ce cas particulier, vive Windows/MAC

    • Linda -

      Bonjour Marc, Nous comprenons que certaines personnes préfèrent ne pas utiliser le cloud pour stocker leurs fichiers. Ce choix dépend entièrement de vous! La principale utilisation du StartMeStick est de permettre à l’utilisateur de naviguer sur Internet en préservant sa confidentialité en ligne. Si vous rencontrez des problèmes avec l’impression à partir de startemestick, n’hésitez pas à contacter notre équipe d’assistance à support@startmestick.com.

  18. Greg Taylor -

    Is there any break if you get more than 1 Stick. We constantly use a laptop and desk top at the same time?

    • Linda -

      Hi Greg, thanks for your interest! Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any on-going promotions for purchasing more than one StartMeStick. But we encourage you to stay informed by reading our biweekly newsletters so you can take advantage of any upcoming promotions.

  19. Jerry Walter -

    Love my StartMeStick. I have been using it on two separate computers for several months now. Thanks for putting out a outstanding product.

  20. Kyle -

    I wish I had seen this page before buying. I bought for the security it claims to provide for online financial transactions, but when I do my online banking, bill paying, or purchasing I always take screenshots of any relevant information from payment forms and amounts, shipping addresses, carrier, tracking, receipts etc. But if I am understanding the mechanics of the startmestick, this will not be possible as no data can be modified or saved while using this device?

    • Linda -

      Hi Kyle, you are correct as to no data can be saved permanently on the StartMeStick (everything stored on the StartMeStick is deleted after your session). However, you can still download any payment forms or screenshots to the StartMeStick and then transfer them onto another USB storage device or email them to yourself before you boot out of your session. If you have further questions about this please email us at support@fixmestick.com.

  21. Carolyn Jean Chambers -

    I think I will not use this start me stick. Too many negative comments. I am 76 years young and not very good with computers. I do not want to have to go through all this re-adding of pass words etc. I will return it.

    • Linda -

      Hi Carolyn, no problem! If you’re still interested in trying it out we offer a 45-day satisfaction guarantee. No need to mail the StartMeStick back to us to get a full refund. If you require technical assistance with re-adding your passwords via Google sync, our support agents would be happy to set it up and show you via a remote connection! Simply email support@fixmestick.com for more details.

    Am I correct in assuming that with the Start Me Stick, I can get rid of the expensive VPN that I currently have ? Or should I keep my VPN ?

      Hi there, when used in combination with a VPN the StartMeStick adds an additional layer of endpoint security, internet privacy, or anonymity.

    I used fixmestick, but had problems starting it, so I bought startmestick. It does not seem to work. After double clicking it to startup and selecting yes to make any change, it flases a graph picture on the screen for about 5 seconds and then nothing happens. If it is cleaning the computer in that 5-second time, then I want a report and what it finds and accomplished. But nothing comes up. How come? And how come I cannot talk to anyone to discuss my problem and understand how to fix it and get some use out of this new purchase? The serial number on the stick is SMSAC01707.

    • Keegan Anfield -

      Hi Phil,

      Thanks for reaching out! The StartMeStick does not clean your computer – only the FixMeStick does that. The StartMeStick is a fast, private, and secure operating system on a USB stick. From the sounds of it you’re not getting in to a FixMeStick scan or the StartMeStick OS. Please send us an email to support@FixMeStick.com or live chat with us on our website so we can help troubleshoot with you and can even set up a time to call you.


  28. Stephen Foley -

    I bought the Start Me Stick as a “Hail Mary Pass” to get me into my Computer, which has Win 10 Pro as its OS and is about 1.5 Years old now, if I ever get the Blue Screen of Death on Boot Up and can’t get into it. Do I have to go into the BIOS and change the Boot-up order such that if it fails from the SSDD (Drive C: ) then it will switch to the Start Me Stick as a bootable USB Device that will get me up and running? That was my main reason for buying it as in the past with my previous Laptop this did happen one time, why I don’t know, and I had a lot of hassle before the OS (Win 8.1) somehow repaired itself with a lot of automatic reboots and got me back into normal operation.

    I am not complaining in any way about the Start Me Stick but will it do that if my Laptop, an ASUSTEK ZENBOOK UX562FD fail to boot up for a non electronic reason? By the way my Start Me Stick SMSAC04292.

    • Linda -

      Hi there, the StartMeStick is a plug-in operating system that revitalizes computers that may no longer be fully functional. The FixMeStick removes viruses from your normal operating system. Since they have different functions, you can have one or both of them depending on what you want to do on your computer.

    I just ordered the startme stick. I also have the fixme stick. If I use the startme stick exclusively why would I still need the fixme stick, since nothing will be stored on my PC.

    • jonathan.st.michael -

      Hi Bob,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      Good catch! Because the StartMeStick refreshes after each session, it’s nearly impossible to contract malware while using the device. If you’re exclusively using the StartMeStick, then you won’t need to worry about running virus scans! If you’d like, you can always run the FixMeStick on other computers if you feel the need to!

    do I leave this start me stick plugged in all the time even when computer is off?

    • jonathan.st.michael -

      Hi William,

      If the computer is off, you can unplug the stick – you only need to leave the stick plugged in when you plan on using it!

    • jonathan.st.michael -

      Hi William,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      Hi there,

      If you’re able to run the FixMeStick, then you should be able to use the StartMeStick as well! Both use similar technology to load the program onto your computer.

      Let us know if you have any other questions!

  36. Derek Hopgood -

    I want to format the hard drives of a couple of old PC’s before disposing of them, but don’t have the system disks that they ask me for. Can I boot from the StartMeStick and format the hard drives that way?
    If not, that might be a functionality for a future product offering you might want to consider!

    • Jonathan -

      Hi Derek,

      Good question! Unfortunately you won’t be able to format the drives while using the StartMeStick – however it does bring up a good idea for those looking to truly bring their computers back to life!

    • Jonathan -

      Hi Ron,

      You can typically access your tax information through online applications. However, because the StartMeStick makes use of a Linux-based operating system, this means that you can only run Linux applications. For example, you won’t be able to access Windows applications (such as Word, or Windows-based TurboTax) while using the StartMeStick.

      Let us know if you have any further questions!

    Is there some way to take a screen shot using StartMeStick?

    • Jonathan -

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      Yes you should be able to screenshot using the StartMeStick! Typically, you’d just need to press the screenshot key on your keyboard, and you’ll be able to take a screenshot!

      If you’re still running into issues, please feel free to contact us at support@fixmestick.com

    I just ordered the StartMeStick, and hope I will get some additional life out of my 8 year old Lenovo.
    I used my 5 year old Fixme stick on it a couple of nights ago, and it was incredible the change that came over my Lenovo. I have to admit that because I have an iPad my computer has been neglected. This has been due to the slowness of it. I can’t afford a new computer, and the cost of taking it into a technician would have been very high, so weighing it all out, I decided to go for the StartMeStick.

    I had the system mechanic, but never did figure out what it was really doing.
    Thanks for giving us these other two products though, and your point so well appreciated to stop throwing all these electronics into the land fills.

      Hi Jim,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      The StartMeStick comes equipped with built in internet drivers, so it should be able to connect to a network.

      However, if you’re still experiencing connection issues while using the StartMeStick, you can reach us at support@fixmestick.com where we can take a closer look into the issue!

    I have Office 365 on my Dell. Will I not be able to use these programs if using Startme Stick?

      Hi Wade,

      While using the StartMeStick you won’t be able to access the software programs installed on your regular computer. If any of the programs have a web application that you can access via an Internet browser you’ll still be able to use them. The great part about the StartMeStick is that as soon as you remove it, your computer goes back to the way it was. So you can plug in the StartMeStick when you want to use the Internet on a fast, secure, and private computer. Then unplug it when you want to use your Office 365 programs.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions.
