StartIsBack++ 2.9


Recommended Posts

Update: I see this was fixed in 2.8.6 - thank you!

For some reason Windows Sandbox isn't showing up in the menu for me (Windows 1903, StartIsBack++ 2.8.5). 

Other changes get picked up immediately (e.g. if I copy and paste an existing shortcut in the directory). I thought it might be a permissions issue, but the values under the Security tab for the Windows Sandbox shortcut don't look any different to normal.

You may create "NoTaskbarSkin"=(DWORD)1 value in HKCU\Software\StartIsBack. This may break off some functionality though.

Sorry for the late reply, the forum didn't notify me of your post till now somehow. That's awesome, I'll fire up my VM and see if it affects anything I use.

Hi there,


Installed SIB on 4 or 5 PC, a great software.

However, I installed it on a brand new HP laptop Windows 10 pro 1809

And it keeps saying: "hold escape key to prevent SIB from loading" (see pictures).


Went to event log

Any idea what's going wrong?


Disabled Bitdefender.

There is a filmora video software installed + MS Office 2019.


Thanks for your kind support.

Maybe you could uninstall it, and install it again but this time running the installer as administrator. And during installation, select the 'for all' option and not the 'just for me' option.

I have customized Windows folders (colors) and with the latest version of SIB, I have that in Start Menu (All Programms)


It was not yellow with previous versions

A bug or is it something else?
I go back to the previous version while waiting
