  1. Tihiy, How about WindowsUpdateSettingsIsBack++ or better yet FullControlPanelIsBack++ ?
  2. I wonder if there any 3rd party software that could force all apps to start docked to a side of a desktop instead of full screen ? So that if I work in Photoshop or Word and then use StartIsBack or any other start menu to launch Twitter app or Email app they launch docked to a side. If anyone know of such software please share.
  3. @Tihiy , you know I've been an early adopter, and supporter of this project. I try to promote it too at my University, however people feel reluctant to install Trial Software and prefer to opt for free alternative because they only need absolute basic out of start menu. I thought I might suggest a freeware version of StartIsBack Light with 98% configuration and functions removed or greyed out, just to get people on bored with SiB, those who want all the setting will want to pay, other will stick to Light version but wont go to alternative products. just an idea.
  4. @Tihiy what new goodies are waiting for us in SiB+ 1.6 or 2.0 (whatever is next) Docked Start Screen ? Start screen as background (Run start menu and programs on top of the start screen) ? windowed apps ? Thanks for your great work
  5. Here running Win8.1 in a VM at 402pixels wide Start Screen, the apps wont launch but that's because they try to launch full size, we would want them to launch resized to side..
  6. That's a rich idea which is floating in the air, however Start screen on side is will have big usability issues due to its huge margins and inability to scroll horizontally. What bout making Start Screen think its on a very Low Resolution display like 600px wide or even less 400px (This can be an option for HD screens only). So it only takes 400px from 1920px wide screen ?
  7. Tihiy do you think option to have StartScreen docked to a side can be made as an option in StartIsBack+ future version. So that Desktop remain Prime work environment, and Start Screen can be docked to the left or the right side (resizable) and all apps from it open in that Docked side without interfering (opening full screen) ? that way user can run booth Environments same time. E.g. Work in Word Document and have tiles on a side with News flipping, or have Twitter feed open etc. (Probably have tiles more centred then the mock pic)
  8. That depends how machine code is generated, it doesn't have to be generated using all components HDD/RAM/CPU/Motherboard. It could be just 2 elements. Eg like Motherboard+CPU .... if so u can swap HDD and RAM everyday . Big Muscle could clarify what Machine Code based on for that. Also once licence been activated on a copy of Windows it doesn't mean it checks it again of hardware is modified. again BigMuscle need to clarify this, dose it check machine code once when activation or every launch ? Anyway, it same as StartIsBack its just 3 Euros =~= 130 Rubles that's a price of a Burger in McDonald's,... I would understand if it was 15 Euros or 20 ... then yeah ...
  9. yes bit it doesn't have a frame that marks it as running, and it can't be closed from it either. it also leaves a gap between Quick Launch and Pinned Programs. But its good temporary solution thanks You can add Quick Launch to taskbar, then drop Metro apps shortcuts from Start Apps:
  10. Made my donation $ $, Bigmuscle Thank you for the release and hoping to see version for 8.1 soon, was a bit confused by wtf is machine code, I guess its generated by the AeroGlass app (im on Win7 machine at the moment so no need to download it) but will give it a try soon. thanks again. Maybe it would be a good idea to mention on the site donation page where to get the Machine code. Thanks again.
  11. Sure. But what purpose except "wow I can search from taskbar like Mac OS X"? No need for any Orb or start button... clean'ish Win8 look... and just an idea / option .... LOL, I thought the main purpose of StartIsBack was the Orb/Start button. Cheers and Regards No, main purpose is Start Menu not the button ...

  13. Here some idea for UI Sorry for quick Photoshop, but this was fastest way to explain. Can this be done ?
  14. Not completely sure if this is due to SiB 2.1RC2 but after uninstalling rc1 and installing rc2 I cant create groups on Start screen... if I drag a tile to the left side and a bar appears indicating new group tile will move there for about a second then return back to the place it was... can someone confirm if it is or isn't SiB related ....
