Tihiy Posted June 11, 2013 Share Posted June 11, 2013 NOTE: THIS IS A TEST TOY, NOT A PROGRAM INTENDED FOR DAILY USE NOR REALLY A DEMO OF STARTISBACK FUTURE VERSIONFOR TINKERERS / SKINNERS / WINDOWS 7 USERSLet's raise the curtain...So! Given the fact Microsoft did cut Start Menu out of Windows 8.1, it's kind of haunted spirit now.What to do? Resurrect it again! Good that 8.1 leak gave me time to do it.Now I'm giving you one toy - mostly useless for you, useful for me - full standalone start menu prototype.Download: http://tihiy.net/files/StartMenuToy.zipWhat for:- Test if Start menu reimplementation is good. I'm quite proud of what I've done in two months - 99% of the functionality reimplemented. I think. Far more faithful than Start8 - that's for sure.- Test if custom skins work well. For skinning you can probably test it on Windows 8 too.- Just to have a lot of startmenus on display.Test notes:- Works on Windows 7. Test in on Windows 7. Windows 8 / 8.1 - not really.- Userpic is not displayed.- Start menu is always on top and does not close as you expect. That may seem buggy but you have to think outside of the box. Exit it with Alt-F4 or right-click - EXIT.- Certain settings (like drag&drop, hover, context menu) are hardcoded.This thread is for:- Useful bug reports, explaining chain of your actions and your setup.- Useful screenshots.- NOT for Windows 8.1 discussion.- NOT for any kind of support.Admin: If this thread does not belong to this forum, please move it.
