  1. So the option to hide the Start button is gone?

    Is it possible to have Start Menu but not the Start button?

    Run 'startisbackcfg /multimon' and uncheck 'Show start button on main taskbar'.

    Ah, thanks a lot, @Tihiy :D

  2. Don't know if it's just me but when I checked "Use advanced Start button context menu" and tried to launch an application from there e.g. clicking on "Task Manager", there was a huge delay before the application actually came up.

    Launching the same application from Win+X menu is considerably faster than from StartIsBack menu.

  3. StartIsBack 2.0RC3


    This is the last RC. If no important bugs arise, that will be Release version. Just a few translations missing.

    What's new:

    - StartIsBack is now configurable by group policy. It was already 100% compatible with Windows 7 policy but now all StartIsBack options are fully configurable / restrictable with group policy.

    Download group policy template: http://www.startisback.com/GroupPolicy.zip

    - It also has a setting to enable StartIsBack in Safe Mode (SOFTWARE\StartIsBack\"EnableInSafeMode"=1)

    - You can activate StartIsBack license online automatically from command line: StartIsBackCfg.exe /activate [/elevated] YOUR-LICENSE-KEY-NUMBER

    I should write a Deployment Guide soon.

    That aside, release contains few minor fixes and improvements. Just a few small steps left to 2.0 release.

    This is going way beyond what I was expected when I bought the app. Go go go Tihiy :thumbup

  4. Great program, bought a licence a few months ago and have been using it on both my laptop and desktop since. No complaints about how it works, but a small suggestion. Is there any way to make the program auto-update? Right now it tells me when there is a new version available, but having it update automatically would be the best.

    Agreed, but I'd like the auto-update feature to be optional. At least we can rollback in case there is any problem with the new version.

  5. Unfortunately I started getting the "no icon" in the main Start menu again. This happened twice on fresh boot with StartIsBack 1.3 (never got that in 1.3 betas) :}

    I'm on i7, 8GB RAM and a SSD, Windows Defender is disabled, no antivirus or anything that should be dragging the system too.

  6. I notice that sometimes the application's icons are missing in the "Recent apps" list. I mean only the application names are shown, with empty icons.

    I've seen that only temporarily in low memory / high cpu usage conditions. Nevertheless in 1.2final i plan to improve MFU algorithm so this stuff should go away.

    Ah that looks promising... However, I used to get it right after a fresh boot. And my laptop has 8GB of RAM and i7 Quad Core so I'm not sure if that's the actual cause of the glitch, just FYI :)

    PS. I was using Aero8 style and the glitch wouldn't go away unless I made some modification in the app's option (and cause it to do a refresh I believe)

  7. Hi, thanks for this great app!

    I notice that sometimes the application's icons are missing in the "Recent apps" list. I mean only the application names are shown, with empty icons.

    Dunno how this can be reproduced but I still see it from time to time in 1.2RC2. Just wanna provide some feedback so maybe you have an idea what's going on.
