I'd like to confirm that StartIsBack+ on my Windows 8.1 x64 machine does not show recent programs pinned to start menu.

 

Its kind of slowing my workflow.

 

A fix would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Hi Tihiy,

Thank you for updating SIB+.

Um... you really intend to make it work on W10?

I hope so. The "new" start menu is a bigger step BACKWARD than even the old Start screen was.

yeah, the Win 10 Startmenu is bad. The only chance that I'll ever upgrade to Win10 is that StartIsBack+ and Aero Glass work again.

Anyone here has W10 to see if SIB+ works well on it? I don't feel like installing and testing a new OS any more. I used to though! 

Wondering if the latest build of W10 stable enough and worth another try.

dunno if its something with SIB, but whenever i install it on my win10 machine, explorer goes in a restart loop :P

 

could be a combination of tweaks though, cant find the reason :P

You and me both Andre. Can't wait until Tihiy and BM add stable Win10 support.

I had the restart loop on Win 10 x64 with a previous version, but no longer happening with SB 1.7.5

 

I can't access SB properties in Win 10 though, nothing happens when I right click on the start button.

 

On Win 8.1 it's working fine.

 

Only think I noticed with both installs is that the installation left me with a black screen apart from the start button and an empty taskbar. I had to reboot to get the desktop back. Never had this before with previous updates. All fine after a reboot though!

Hi, I have an old Windows 8 PC which has been running StartIsBack for a couple years. I will be putting a new SSD into it and switching to Windows 7. I would like to transfer its StartIsBack license to StartIsBack+ in a new Windows 8.1 PC. Do I have to somehow de-authorize the old PC?

Good morning,

I'm new in the forum, I downloaded a free copy of the 30 days of this fantastic program, because of an update of Windows 8.1, when I reboot the PC, there is a black screen with the cursor in the middle of the screen
! Therefore, it forces you to uninstall.

Can you solve this boring problem? :no:

Thank.

Just a heads-up: in the last few days I've had quite a few users with black screen at logon, due to Explorer crashing in StartIsBack64.dll. They all had old versions of SiB+ (pre-1.7.0) installed, upgrading to the latest solved the problem.
