  1. Not getting any update notification from SiB at all, checking "About" says version 2.0.6 with no new versions advertised, but when I check manually on the site I see there have been 3 updates since then

    The option doesn't bother me so much, however the placement of it does.

    I am used to clicking on Start Menu -> right-clicking on 'This PC' and then clicking on 'Properties' which is always at the BOTTOM of the list of options. Now the BOTTOM option has been changed to 'Display as menu'. Is there a way to re-order that menu or hide 'display as menu'. I just want 'Properties' to be the last option in that list as it has always been.

    +1 I was about to post the same thing, I am used to right click > then hit the last "Properties" option, that new "Display as menu" option is off-putting, please either give an option to disable it (Not really needed anyway tbh) or move it higher up

    Properties is always the last option on right click context menus in Windows, changing it is not great

  3. There has been some reports on this issue. Do you use some skin or high contrast theme?

     

    I only use the modded theme that allows coloured titlebars, nothing else

     

    This is the theme

    http://www.windowscentral.com/replace-those-white-title-bars-windows-10-colors-theme

     

    I hope this is not the cause, because white titlebars are horrendous, and not getting TH2 means this is the only way to have them coloured

     

    SiB 1.1.6 does not have this problem, even with the modded theme, it has only been introduced with 1.1.7

  4.  

    ++1.0.1 is not pushed automatically as it is minor update. (Same as +1.7.5 vs +1.7)

    Start menu purposefully has different color as it's not possible to match taskbar color without matching blur and translucency level as well.

    Could you make it match the taskbar colour if blur and transparency is disabled?

    I use neither, and have to manually try to match the menu and taskbar colours whenever I change them

  5. No! I want to start cmd as Administrator only from StartIsBack++ app, not always (I know how to enable loading cmd always with an administrator privilege). Also I think, it would be very nice to add feature to your own app links in menu like regedit or something like this (with adding your own or system icon to it).

     

    Um, right click it > run as Admin

    Could you make start menu and taskbar transparency, a separate option to custom coloured too please?

     

    If I want Windows to control the colouring, I have no choice but to have everything transparent because SiB overrides the transparent option in windows settings

     

    Thanks

    The slider for that option controls the opacity, you can set it to be fully opaque or fully transparent or anywhere in between, I think the options are perfect just a they are.

     

     

     

    If I want Windows to control the colour scheme, NOT SiB, then I can't use that slider and can not control transparency unless I want SiB controlling the colour scheme too

     

    Separate options for colour and transparency are needed IMO

  8. Would you guys like a round user picture on Start Menu?

     

    Sure, very pleased to see SiB working on 10 now, I was getting worried I would be stuck with that hideous thing they call a menu

     

    Will it be a free update to SiB+ owners?

  9. Every reboot, the top of the screen becomes active again meaning I can grab and close the desktop as if it was native 8.1

     

    Fresh Windows install does nothing to fix it, I have settings set to disable all active corners but have to enable and disable them every reboot

  10. Yup, hoping for an update, can't stand the new start menu/screen cr4p in Windows 10, it's got as much useful functionality as a potato, and with RTM looking like a June release, we need a real start menu again

  11.  

    Even with all the hot corners / edges disabled, when I move my mouse to the top of the screen and click drag down, it still turns my desktop into an app as if I want to drag down to close, or snap to left/right, any way to stop this happening?

     

    Latest SIB+ 1.7, Windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro x64

     

    EDIT - Enabling and disabling the top edge snap option again fixed it, disabling those options once didn't have an effect, had to do it twice, bug ?

     

    I've noticed some odd behaviors with the edge gestures. For me, I have top, left, right enabled but periodically they'll just stop working under SiB. I have to fix by rebooting :\

     

     

    Yea it's still happening, randomly the top hot edge becomes active again and when I try to highlight a load of icons at the top of the screen, it grabs the desktop into windowed mode as if I want to kill or snap it

  12.  

    StartIsBack+ 1.7.5

    http://www.startisba...s_setupBETA.exe

     

    - Better Windows 10 support

    - Minor improvements

     

     

     

    Thanks, pleased you're going to be supporting Windows 10, the way that new start menu-screen is turning out, Im not liking what Im seeing - they haven't given us back a start menu, they've made a smaller start screen...

     

    EDIT - Looks like the right click advanced start button Win-X context menu doesn't work with SIB+ and Win 10 atm

  14. is possible to add a feature to manage wifi connections, like this:

    You can add Manage Wireless Connection pretty much the same way, using Custom Folders -> Add -> shell:::{1fa9085f-25a2-489b-85d4-86326eedcd87}

    I recently setup Outlook 2010 for email, now whenever I search for anything in the start menu, the only results that show are emails

    Any way to stop it searching emails ?

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2927681

    That's the opposite of my problem

    Start search ONLY shows Outlook emails

    It does not show programs or files any more

  15. I've noticed whenever StartIsBack+ is updated, it restarts Explorer with Admin rights, which breaks Metro apps until you manually restart explorer normally

    Not a big deal as updates are not every day, but no way to avoid this ?
