    StartIsBack 2.8.2 Crashes During Installation

    I run this with every new install. Never an issue!

    StartIsBack 2.8.2 Crashes During Installation

    You may want to try running this command as administrator schtasks /delete /tn "\StartIsBack health check" /f Then installing SiB again. If successful run command again.
  3. Well they work for me. Perhaps you just need to study them more closely.

    I haven't had any issues with it, and it is working great on build 18850 which is 20H1.
  5. I use StartisBack++ to skin my taskbar, but not to skin the Start Menu as I really like the Windows 10 start menu. This is what I do to organize it. I organize it just the way I want, and follow these directions. This may be a starting point for you.
  6. I have also noticed this with other programs. Usually built-in Windows programs. It seems random.

    @TihiyCould you update ONE to support 19H1 please?
  8. Sorry @jaclaz, there is no privacy on the internet. Only home alone in your room with the lights out, and the shades drawn.
  9. OK will do. Telemetry lets MS know anonymously how people use their computers, and directly reports to them any issues e.g. with drivers, 3rd-party software, and bugs with the OS so these problems can be repaired in a (hopefully) timely fashion. In the old days one would need to send error reports via a website or speak with them on the phone. With all of this data coming in to MS it can resolve these issues expediently. Also, by understanding better how people are using their computers MS can better develop features which will allow us to use our computers more productively.

    How 'bout a handful of testes? Seriously though, @bigmuscle, you should take all distribution as a complement. If your code sucked no one would share. I think you should THANK @nicely for getting the word out about your work. Remember he is doing this for free, and you don't owe him anything for his promotional efforts.
