  1. Still trying to figure out how to get a fully transparent taskbar. Only way I've found to do it is to enable dynamic transparency, but then it goes solid coloured when you click on the start button. The custom colour field doesn't let you make it transparent, and even manually setting it to ffffffff in the registry doesn't do it. What am I missing?
  2. Just got the new update, and it now moves the Win11 flyouts to the correct location. I love you so much for that, as even the legit Win10 taskbar didn't do that properly! (and it makes a hell of a difference on my 32:10 monitor) Quick licensing question. If I purchase a second license, am I allowed to use one of them to install StartAllBack onto my work computer which is owned by my employer, provided I install it as "For me only". DisplayFusion for example explicitly allows you to do this in its license.
  3. That's annoying, especially as even with the Win7 option, you still get the Win11 one for wifi. Is there a way to fix that?
  4. I'm now running full, paid, StartAllBack 3.1.2. I have my taskbar on the left edge of the screen. When I click on the systray icons for wifi, battery, volume etc. they still open on the right hand side of the screen. Would it be possible to add a fix for this in StartAllBack? It's especially annoying on an Ultrawide monitor, as the controls appear a long way away from where I clicked
  5. It doesn't quite go all the way to fully transparent. I guess combined with dynamic transparency its barely noticible, but it's still there. Plus you still get the ugly white line when using the Win7 style.
  6. Yeah I've since realised that StartAllBack does taskbar as well (looks like it uses the same registry hack) and improves on it, so I've gone down that route instead. Combined with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker to reduce the minimum width of a vertical taskbar it's really nice. Only question now is: I love the new 100% transparent taskbar that the dynamic transparency option gives you, but is there a way to have it 100% transparent all the time, rather than have it come back when a program is maximised?
  7. Is there a way to remove the ad for the Win11 version from StartIsBack++? I'm using the WinAero Tweaker registry hack to restore the Win10 taskbar, so it's correct that I'm using the Win10 version of StartIsBack, but I'd rather not get nagged about the new release
  8. Solved the problem. Added this to my existing AutoHotKey startup script: Run, schtasks.exe /run /tn "DWMGlassElevate.exe_-1916372974" which just runs another compiled AutoHotKey script, now as admin, that simply elevates itself further (to TrustedInstaller status) using PowerRun Run, C:\Scripts\PowerRun_x64.exe C:\Scripts\DWMGlass.exe which finally kills the dialogue box! WinWait, dwm.exe,,15 WinClose, dwm.exe I'm sure there's neater ways to do it, like a single script that check's its own privilege level, but I don't care. This works . Because it's run first, it means I don't have to hover over each window to correct the initial drawing errors.
  9. Yeah, but even with border padding set to 0 (as I have done) it's still there because the border padding on the default Win10 theme is invisible (which is why windows positioning is always screwed on Win10) But yeah, it's mainly about just automating setting up my environment, so I log in to something already set up, not having to dismiss error messages like it's my dad's old Windows 98 box.
  10. I currently have an autohotkey startup script that launches my apps across 2 virtual desktops and pixel-perfect positions their windows, but the Glass8 windows have thicker borders and the prompt ends up behind them. Also I'm lazy.
  11. Yeah that fixed it (apart from the blur effect). Now if I can just get autohotkey to interact with that popup window, it'll be sorted, but even running as admin doesn't work
  12. How did you get it working on 16299.15? I have the donate version of 1.5.6 so it should grab symbols automatically, but all I get is a message saying that it doesn't work in my version of windows. (edit: working. It gave me an invalid machine ID, got the correct ones from the debug.log and now I have the symbols) (edit2: not working after reboot, even with symbols present)
  13. Worked fine on reinstall, unfortunately. It was literally just the standard windows "This application has stopped responding" dialogue, coming from the configuration utility. There was no error message, no windows popping up, nothing useful. I have these in the event log though.
  14. Installing on anniversary update. startisback configuration crashes twice at the end of install, but it still seems to work.
  15. It's a bug that happens if you disable text glow. Reenabling fixes it. An ugly hack you can do: Open up the theme atlas PNG in gimp or photoshop and completely erase the bits that are for the text glow. You can then re-enable text glow in AeroGlass because it won't actually appear/
