two areas for improvement
Blueeee posted a topic in StartIsBack+1:I use the win key to open the start menu every day, so I will not click the "start button". In addition, win1-win0 on the keyboard corresponds to 10 applications on the taskbar, so the "start button" is redundant for me. Tried to replace it with a transparent image, but it still takes place, it looks ugly, I need a function to turn off the "start button". 2:The "recommended items" area is useless to me, I hope a future version will feature the ability to turn it off
Should I keep Windows 11 or downgrade to 7/8/8.1/10?
GD 2W10 posted a topic in Windows 11Hi, I am currently running Windows 11 build 22000 on my HP Elitebook 840 G3. I have experienced a lot of problems, such as if I am AFK for a long time, the computer will shut off completely. Also explorer is very buggy. Should I go to 7/8/8.1/10, or should I keep 11?
startallback can cause some shortcuts to fail
75d1ff102f61252d posted a topic in StartIsBack+Hello! The last few days some of my Windows logo key keyboard shortcuts are not working properly For example: Win + A open quick settings, Win + N open notification center But Win + I to open system settings works fine Click on “disable program for current user”, sign out, sign in, and then everything works The same problem occurs when installing startallback in the Windows Sandbox Windows 11 Insider Preview 25227 StartAllBack 3.5.3 The text is translated by Google, and may not be accurate
for some reason, startallback doesn't disable the original windows 11 start button, meain that whenever you hover over it, there's a 50/50 chance that either startallback button is selected: or the original start button is selected: i've tried some programs that disable the start button (start killer, startisgone), but they cause THIS to happen: any help would be greatly appreciated, as i can't find anyone else on the internet complaining about this issue edit: seems to only be an issue with "enhanced classic taskbar" selected. still annoying, seeing as the regular taskbar in w11 is garbage.
How to install Windows 11 on "unsupported" hardware.
GD 2W10 posted a topic in Windows 11Do you want to upgrade your Windows 7/8/8.1/10 PC to Windows 11, but your PC doesn't meet the requirements? Well then, this tutorial is for you! These are methods that can be found anywhere on the internet, but I wanted to post it here. With this tutorial you should be able to install Windows 11 on any PC that supports Windows 10 x64, as there is no x86 release of Windows 11, so if your processor is IA-32 only, then I'm afraid you're out of luck. If you do have a 64-bit processor, but only 32-bit EFI, and no BIOS access, then I'm afraid that you also can't install Windows 11 on that PC, as again there's no IA-32 release of Windows 11, and there isn't a way to boot 64-bit EFI files on 32-bit EFI (at least for Windows). However, if you are running Windows 7 x86, and have a 64-bit processor, then yes, it is possible to upgrade to Windows 11. I will later post a method on how to do so. Method 1: Install Windows 11 with the Windows 10 Setup (clean install ONLY method, does not work with the modern setup, therefore it cannot upgrade) (best clean install method): 1. Get a Windows 10 x64 ISO. You can do this with the Media Creation Tool, or with Windows ISO Downloader. 2. Copy the contents of the ISO to a folder. Go to sources and delete "install.wim" or "install.esd". 3. Get a Windows 11 ISO 4. Mount the Windows 11 ISO. 5. Go to the sources folder, and copy "install.wim" or "install.esd" 6. Paste the install.wim/esd file into the Windows 10 x64 sources folder. Here’s how to make it into an ISO: 7. Download and install NTLite. https://www.ntlite.com/ 8. Once you have installed it, select "Free", unless you have a license. 9. Click "Add" > "Image directory" 10. Select the Windows 10 setup with the Windows 11 "install.wim/esd" folder. 11. Right click on "install.wim/esd", and click "Create ISO" Method 2: Upgrade/Install Windows 11 with the Windows 10 "appraisesres.dll" file (upgrade + clean install method, this method ONLY works with the Modern Windows Setup, using the other setup will still give you the "This PC can't run Windows 11" error) (WARNING: This method may not work for newer builds. It will definitely work with 21996, some versions of 22000, and maybe also some slightly later builds): 1. Turn off your Wi-Fi. If you don't do this, it will still give you the error. 2. Get a Windows 11 ISO. 3. Copy the contents of the ISO to a folder. Go to sources and delete "appraisesres.dll" 4. Get a Windows 10 x64 ISO. You can do this with the Media Creation Tool, or with Windows ISO Downloader. 5. Mount the Windows 10 x64 ISO. 6. Go to the sources folder, and copy "appraisesres.dll" to the sources folder into the Windows 10 ISO. 7. Paste the file into the "sources" folder in the Windows 11 directory. When you run the setup, it should check to see if it is capable for Windows 10 and not 11. If you want to make this into an ISO, refer to the instructions in Method 1. Method 3: Install Windows 11 using DISM, DISKPART, and BCDBOOT (clean install only) This method only requires a Windows 11 ISO. If you are trying to dual boot on the same hard drive, the partitioning steps will be different. 1. Boot your Windows 11 media 2. Open a command prompt window (You can do this by pressing Shift+F10) 3. Open diskpart by typing in "diskpart" in the command prompt window. If you are installing on BIOS, refer to the Legacy commands. If you are installing on UEFI, refer to the UEFI commands. Legacy: diskpart sel dis 0 clean (this wipes your hard drive) conv mbr cre par prim size=100 form quick fs=ntfs label="System Reserved" assign letter w active cre par prim form quick assign letter c exit UEFI: diskpart sel dis 0 clean (this wipes your hard drive) conv gpt cre par efi size=100 form quick fs=fat32 label="System Reserved" assign letter w active cre par prim form quick assign letter c exit 4. After partitioning the drive, go to the sources folder by typing in "cd /d D:(where your Windows 11 media is)\sources 5. Type in the following commands: dism /apply-image /imagefile:install.wim(.esd) /index:(1 for Home, 6 for Pro) /applydir:C:\ bcdboot C:\Windows /s W: /f ALL bootrec /scanos bootrec /fixmbr bootrec /fixboot bootrec /rebuildbcd 6. Now reboot. Windows setup will then continue normally. If it doesn't boot, run Startup Repair. Method 4: Install Windows with Rufus (clean install only??) (simple method) NOTE: You will need a USB flash drive for this method. 1. Get a Windows 11 ISO and a USB big enough for it. 2. Download Rufus. https://rufus.ie/en/#google_vignette 3. After downloading Rufus, open the application and connect the USB. 4. Click on "Select". Select your Windows 11 ISO. 5. Under image options, you will see three options: "Standard", "Extended", and "Windows To Go". Click on "Extended". This will bypass all of the additional Windows 11 requirements. 6. Click on "Start". After the tool is finished making the ISO, if you want to make this into an ISO, refer to the instructions in Method 1.
Tired of Windows 11? Want to go back to Windows 10 without having to move files (well, kinda)? Well this tutorial is for you! NOTE: This will involve deleting some partitions and modifying the registry. Back up your files as we will run into some errors. 1. You will need two ISOs: a Windows 10 1507 or 1511 ISO and a Windows 10 20H2+ ISO. You can get these ISOs via Windows ISO Downloader 2. Mount the Windows 10 1507/1511 ISO and copy all of the files into another folder. You must use a Windows 10 1507/1511 ISO, or else this will not work. 3. Mount the Windows 10 20H2+ ISO and go to sources and copy "install.wim". In order to follow the steps on the tutorial, I would recommend using 20H2 or later, as I have not tested any version before, so some might require additional work. However, we are still using the 1507/1511 setup. 4 Right click "setup.exe", then click "Troubleshoot compatibility" 5. Click on "Use recommended settings". This will set the compatibility to Windows 8. 6 Click on "Test program". It will give you a UAC prompt, click Yes. 7. Go through setup normally until reboot. We are tricking the 1507/1511 setup into thinking that this is an upgrade from Windows 8 to 10, but we are actually "upgrading" 11 to 10. 8. Your computer should reboot three times, getting past the getting ready screen. After that, on the next reboot Windows will present you with the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen. This is normal, so let it get to the Windows Recovery screen. 9. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt. We are going to disable WinRE, rebuild the boot files, delete a faulty driver (IntelPMT.sys), and skip OOBE. 10. Type in these commands: cd /d C: rd Recovery /s /q diskpart sel dis 0 lis par sel par 3 (the partition labeled Recovery) del par (override) sel par 1 (your boot partition) assign exit bcdboot C:\Windows /s W: (where your boot partition is) bootrec /fixmbr bootrec /fixboot regedit 11. Go to HKLM and click File > Load hive 12. Go to C:\Windows\system32\config and import "SYSTEM". Name the hive something other than "SYSTEM", like "SYS" 13. Go to HKLM\SYS\ControlSet001\Services. Scroll down until you see the key "IntelPMT". Right click and delete the key. 14. We will also bypass OOBE. In that same hive, go to the Setup key, and set both CMD Lines to cmd.exe, and set all values to 0. 15. Now unload your SYSTEM hive. Exit the Registry Editor, then reboot. 16. When you get to your desktop, you will see that your apps transferred, but not your files. Your files should still be there in the Windows 11 folder, located in C:\Windows.old\Users\(your user). Copy all of the files into your folder from your old folder. Most apps will work, but some may need to be reinstalled, such as Bluestacks. 17. You will notice that some apps will not work, like the Personalization shortcut on the right-click desktop menu will not work. This all can be fixed with a repair install of Windows 10 20H2+. To do this, repeat steps 1-7 or use the original 20H2+ ISO. This should fix the errors. You could technically continue downgrading all the way down to 8.1, by downgrading from 20H2+ to 1511 with a similar trick, then 1511 to 8.1 (but downgrading to those OSES are much more complicated).
Windows 11 not updating to 22518 on Mac
GD 2W10 posted a topic in Windows 11Hello, I currently have a Macbook Pro dualbooted with Monterey and 11 22504 (installed via Windows 10 20H2 setup) via Bootcamp. I am trying to upgrade to 22518, but whenever I try to update via Settings (I have TPM check disabled with a tool), it gives me the error 0x80888002. I try to upgrade with the setup, but end up getting the error "Sorry, we're having trouble determining if your PC can run Windows 11. Please close Setup and try again.". I've tried to upgrade to a newer build by using an older Windows 10 setup and setting the setup compatibility to Windows 8, but it gives me the same error. How can I fix this? Should I redo the Bootcamp or is there another fix?
