  1. I can confirm this issue since I'm also affected by this exact behavior. At least the search is working properly again when explorer gets restarted! I haven't had this issue. I'm on the fast ring of automatically installed insider builds. Are you on insider builds or not? If Tihiy can't reproduce the issue he probably can't fix it.
  2. There's got to be a reason it's happening for some users and not others. I haven't been able to reproduce this either.
  3. Doesn't switching back to one of the other skins resolve it? Partly. I would prefer my favorite design. I may not be understanding well enough partly because I don't do much customization of the look - what skin were you using before that you liked? Sorry, I did not care for its name. It was the third option which is now (com)Plain10. So the now fourth option isn't what you used to use? Or selecting it somehow doesn't give you what it used to give you, if I'm understanding you correctly? Can you be specific about what the fourth option gives you that's different from what the third option used to give you?

  6. I just now manually upgraded from v1.0.4 to v1.1.0. I believe you that it's happening to you, but I'm trying to click the Start Button really, really fast after clicking "This PC" in the SiB Start Menu and I can't reproduce this. What visual style are you using? I'm currently using Plain8.
  7. You can do it in SiB++ by right-clicking an item and choosing "Pin to Start Menu". That doesn't work for me. When I try, for instance the program "Firefox", it does not show up on the left-hand side of the start menu. When I switch to the Win10 view, it DOES show up on the right-hand side of the menu as a tile. Just like in Windows 10.It's working for me (attached screenshots). Haven't tested with Firefox because I don't have it installed.

  9. StartisBack's default Start button looks just like Windows 10's as far as I can see. If it's different and I can't notice, did you try clicking the link in SiB's Properties in the Appearance section for downloading Start Button orbs from DeviantART? Maybe there's one there that looks like how you want.
  10. As far as I'm aware, you're not forced to buy a business version if you only want it on 1 PC anyway. Business versions are really for a person/company to deploy company-wide or at least on more than one PC. Just buy the $2.99 1 PC version. Are you able to actually install programs like this on your work PC though? A lot of work PCs are locked down to limit what you can and can't install. If you already installed the trial version successfully, though, then you already know whether you can install it or not - so ignore me if that's the case.
  11. This means some "registry cleaner" deleted entries which are required to launch metro apps. It's not just windows apps, settings has same error. Disabling SIB, issue goes away. I don't use registry cleaners except CCleaner after uninstalling a program. Perhaps CCleaner is the culprit? I'll uninstall SIB with Revo and make sure all registry entries are deleted and reinstall. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll try again.I've used CCleaner for years but indeed, all registry cleaners including the one in CCleaner, cause more harm than good.
  12. Don't the taskbar and start menu transparency sliders affect the blur? Honestly asking - I would think it would since I assumed that's what's being blurred - what's showing through.
  13. I would take a guess to uninstall aeroglass you're referring to, or whatever you have to do to put Windows 10 back in the state it was before installing it.
  14. I just tried PowerShell using SiB's search and run as Admin and it worked fine for me. Just looking for information: you are getting the yes/no prompt for elevation, or you're not getting that too? By the way (as a workaround) you know you can 1) set PowerShell as default in right-click menu instead of Command Prompt, and 2) you can right click the Start Button and choose either PowerShell or PowerShell as Admin from there? What happens if you do that, does it work right? No prompt asking for elevation, just an error with Accept button. It happens with almost all executables for example Notepad++ Sounds like you got some other problem going on unrelated to SiB. What happens if you try the same thing from the Start Screen? Maybe try a "Reset this PC" from the Action Center/All Settings/Update & Security. I have the Windows search(The one next to start) completely disabled so I can't try that. SiB has an option to add a Start screen shortcut to the top of SiB's Start Menu. I think there's other ways of opening the original Windows 10 start menu, but I'd have to look in SiB's configuration for that. If you enable the Start screen shortcut, click it to go to the Start screen, type Powershell and right-click to run as Admin, does the same thing happen? No matter what, I'd say either a Reset or a fresh reinstall was in order.

  17. Well, I do have other tweaks going on through the free O&O ShutUp10, so who knows - without them perhaps I would observe the same thing.
  18. Not I, I just checked and it's still applied for me.
  19. You have to write support email. http://www.startisback.com/#support-tab General support If you have licensing or urgent support questions, please email me to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxx. I have already emailed 12 hours ago and received no response. I also entered my email in the Submit Query field and recieved this email: This key is able to activate 5 PCs. Available PC activations: 4 Used PC activations: 1. The email address is the only method for handling licensing issues other than losing or never receiving your license key, which is the only thing that the automated form is for. But as I said, I have already emailed to: startisback at gmail dot com I understand, and I believe you.

  22. Are you using a different theme other than the default Plain8? Custom taskbar coloring is working for me (I have KB3081438 too).
  23. I don't know if he can make SiB do that or not - that's RDP that takes that away. Run dialog or Command Prompt. "shutdown /i" (without quotes, and that's the lowercase letter I (Eye) after the forward slash). Gives you a GUI. Enter PC name and other options, etc. If you're using RDP on a local network, you can use the command from any network PC, not just the one you want to shutdown, since you have to give the shutdown GUI the name(s) of the PCs to act on. Or use Chrome RDP, I use either of those two options when I want to reboot or shutdown a PC remotely. If you don't want either of those two alternatives, ignore me. Or use left ALT and F4 to bring up the dialogue box and chose what you want to to. Not really an option , i could use shutdown -i too, but if you only using mouse for simple task already made just by clicking.. anyways does any of you know what command for the simple shutdown gui is? You can actually configure the shutdown command completely with command line switches, put it in a batch file and make a shortcut to it. I know it's not as easy as you'd like but I can't think of any other option other than standalone third-party programs for shutdown or reboot.
