  1. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    You can adjust the color, opacity as well as add blur to resolve any issues with readability. Blur does not help readability; if you dilute the color enough, blur of white is white. And white text on white background is not readable. So your solution is make it darker. That's not a solution, that's a workaround.
  2. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    Hi Tihii, looks good! Some problems may arise with white text and bright background color of the start menu. Perhaps adding some shadows to the text if the background color is light would be possible? Also, please consider an open animation in similar style to the native start menu. The sudden appearance is a sore.
  3. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    Hi Tihiy, Glad to see you have not remained silent and have created this for Windows 10. I am not sure why, but somehow I remembered you said there will not be a version for Windows 10. I have one issue and one request. At some point, "All Programs" menu became empty: Also, if possible, please create an animation for the start menu, for consistency sake with other Windows 10 popups. Thanks, Leo
  4. Remove Windows 8.1 bottom left "Start" corner?

    @xp sounds interesting, thanks
  5. Remove Windows 8.1 bottom left "Start" corner?

    StartIsGone removes the button entirely. I only want to remove the extra "hot corner" popup.
  6. StartIsBack+ 1.7.5

    Hi Tihiy, The default start button does not look well when the taskbar is to the left or right, rather than top or bottom: Is it not possible to make the start image wider and then just center and crop to the appropriate size according to taskbar width? Thanks
  7. When the taskbar is on the bottom, it works fine. Start button is in the bottom left corner, and everything is as expected. But Microsoft, again, fucked up with the stupid start image popping for people who do not have their taskbars on the bottom. Mine is to the left. So I have a start button at the top; I also have a start button active corner to the bottom when my cursor goes there. Anyway to remove this corner image? Thanks in advance
  8. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Since 1.3.1 newly installed games create shortcuts in Games start menu subfolder so it's searched like in Windows 7. If you don't have some shortcuts there, create them. I don't think Steam creates shortcuts there, and creating them would a chore for every Steam game.
  9. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Hi Tihiy, Sorry to sound like a broken record, but I would like to ask you to consider adding searching in the "games explorer" database from the start menu, like in Windows 7. Thanks
  10. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Still no searching in Games...
  11. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Here is a shout out for supporting search in games folder. Thanks!
  12. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Unfortunately, shortcuts for games are not created in start menu as this function is cut from Windows 8' game explorer, I may add a function to recreate them later but I can't promise. I would be very grateful if you do.
  13. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    I see searching for games still doesn't find any results.
  14. Start Is Back - 2.1 release

    Tihiy, I think I noticed a bug. When searching in the start menu for games that appear in game center, it finds no results. However, they appear in the most-used applications list. Could you please add games to the search paths? Thanks, Leo
