  1. Aero Glass Deactivates Automatically

    Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and type task scheduler. You will see it come up in the start menu. Click it, and wait for it to open. In the left pane click on Task scheduler Library. In the top middle part of Task Scheduler you will see a list of tasks. If there is a task called aeroglass or similar, right click on it, and select delete, confirm if asked. Now, in the right hand section of task scheduler, under Actions, select import task, and it will open a windows where you can go to the Aero_Glass.xml download, click on the xml file, and confirm any window which opens. Now restart your computer, and you should be good to go.
  2. Where is that? I have Windows 10, and it's Start Menu is awesome!
  3. OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    @Tihiy With new RS5 17618 Windows Explorer does not get Sets with OldNewExplorer enabled. Is there a way for you to fix this? So you have two projects now. 1) Old New Explorer, and 2) StartisBack!
  4. Beta channel

    SiB not working on latest build 17618. I know this is RS5, but I just wanted to give you a heads up!
  5. Aero Glass Windows 10 Hyper-V

    Or you could move on to a more up to date Windows.
  6. Aero Glass Deactivates Automatically

    Aeroglass startup is handled in task scheduler. The easiest way to handle this is to see what is going on there. Personally, I never run the executable of Aeroglass. I assume you have it in a folder. Usually that folder is C:\Aeroglass. In that case I would open task scheduler, and delete the aeroglass task. Download the attached .xml file, and in Task Scheduler select import, and select the .xml file. If your Aeroglass is in another location than C:\Aeroglass you will need to edit the 4th line from the bottom to reflect that. Remember to save as xml, and from save drop down menu select all files. Aero_Glass.xml

    You may want to look here. https://winaero.com/blog/change-system-font-windows-10/
  8. All you do is copy key to aeroglass folder. Then restart your computer.
  9. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    Right clicking on open program in taskbar restarts explorer, but does not close window.
  10. OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    I think you may not have actually replaced it. Did you rename the file from dll.aero to dll, and rename the original to dll.bak? It involves some work with permissions. I just replaced mine, and it IS working. Same OS as yours.

    This file works. GpeditEnablerforHomeEdition.rar
  12. OldNewExplorer 1.1.8

    I made a fix for you. It hides, but will appear on mouseover. Anyway, I have two files one for aero, and another for 3rd party themes build 1709. Just replace in your respective themes folder, using aero as an example: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero\shell\normalcolor. Then restart or logout to apply. I edited the extensions to show which was which so change back to .dll! ShellStyle.rar
  13. StartIsBack+ 1.7.5

    I use SiB just for the themes. I always use the Windows 10 Start Menu, and have it at the top of the SiB start menu. Could you please tell me how to remove the Pin To Start Menu right click option as all I need is Pin to Start. I can not find it in registry.
  14. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    Not my theme, but it is called Chrononaut, and I got it from virtualcustoms.net.
  15. StartIsBack++ 2.5

    Sure it is!
  16. You should have a folder named Aeroglass on your C-Drive (BEST RECOMMENDED LOCATION!) If it is not there MOVE the folder there. Next copy and paste the code from my reply into your favorite text editor, and save it as Aero_Glass.xml. Make sure you do NOT save it a a text file if you put quotes around it when you save like this "Aero_Glass.xml" it WILL save properly. Save it to your desktop, OK. Now run this command in a command prompt as administrator. schtasks.exe /Create /XML "%USERPROFILE%\desktop\Aero_Glass.xml" /tn Aeroglass Now, restart your computer. Code to be saved as Aero_Glass.xml on your desktop: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?> <Task version="1.4" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task"> <RegistrationInfo> <URI>\Aero Glass</URI> </RegistrationInfo> <Triggers> <BootTrigger> <Enabled>true</Enabled> </BootTrigger> </Triggers> <Principals> <Principal id="Author"> <UserId>S-1-5-18</UserId> <RunLevel>HighestAvailable</RunLevel> </Principal> </Principals> <Settings> <MultipleInstancesPolicy>IgnoreNew</MultipleInstancesPolicy> <DisallowStartIfOnBatteries>false</DisallowStartIfOnBatteries> <StopIfGoingOnBatteries>false</StopIfGoingOnBatteries> <AllowHardTerminate>false</AllowHardTerminate> <StartWhenAvailable>true</StartWhenAvailable> <RunOnlyIfNetworkAvailable>false</RunOnlyIfNetworkAvailable> <IdleSettings> <StopOnIdleEnd>true</StopOnIdleEnd> <RestartOnIdle>false</RestartOnIdle> </IdleSettings> <AllowStartOnDemand>true</AllowStartOnDemand> <Enabled>true</Enabled> <Hidden>false</Hidden> <RunOnlyIfIdle>false</RunOnlyIfIdle> <DisallowStartOnRemoteAppSession>false</DisallowStartOnRemoteAppSession> <UseUnifiedSchedulingEngine>true</UseUnifiedSchedulingEngine> <WakeToRun>false</WakeToRun> <ExecutionTimeLimit>PT0S</ExecutionTimeLimit> <Priority>5</Priority> <RestartOnFailure> <Interval>PT1M</Interval> <Count>3</Count> </RestartOnFailure> </Settings> <Actions Context="Author"> <Exec> <Command>%SYSTEMDRIVE%\AeroGlass\aerohost.exe</Command> </Exec> </Actions> </Task>

  23. MS Edge title bar is broken with 1.5.7

    Well I am on the Insiders Program, so BMs AG hasn't worked for me in a long long time. MS is integrating acrylic at a rapid pace.
  24. MS Edge title bar is broken with 1.5.7

    With the work Microsoft is doing with Acrylic in RS4, I would expect that BM's programs will eventually not be required.
