StartIsBack registry tweaks

Recommended Posts

The settings for SIB are stored in the Windows registry in this path: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\StartIsBack".

I know that some registry tweaks exist which are not listed there in the registry after the first/clean installation of SIB, for example "StartPane_JumpListWidth" or "StartPane_LeftWidth" (I got those two some time ago from one of the developers).

Where can I find a list of all the possible SIB registry tweaks?

Here are some


StartPane_LeftWidth - override left pane width 

StartPane_RightWidth - override right pane default width

StartPane_JumpListWidth - override jumplist pane default width

StartPane_MinHeight - override minimal pane height

Start_RightPaneIcons = 1 to show icons in right pane

Start_SortFoldersFirst = 2 to sort folders alongside items 

StartMenuDefaultView = 1 to show All Programs by default

Start_SearchPCSettings = 0 to disable Settings search

EnableShadow = 0 to disable start menu shadow

FadeUserFrame = 0 to disable userpic pop animation

NoDarkRun = 1 to disable dark Run dialog 

NoDarkTooltips = 1 to disable dark tooltips

NoTaskbarSkin = 1 to disable taskbar enhancements

JumpListBorder = 8 override taskbar jumplist border size

Also supported are Windows 7 registry tweaks: StartPanel_FadeDelay, StartPanel_FadeIn, StartPanel_FadeOut.

Cool, thanks. Are there more tweaks (just curious)?

Are those settings (or at least some of them) specific to SIB or are some of them more general and taken from the Windows UI settings somewhere else in the registry? Because I could imagine that "EnableShadow" for example could also be applied to other Windows UI elements somewhere else in the registry.
