StartAllBack for Windows 11


Recommended Posts

Great, I just upgraded my license and it worked/activated perfectly.

What I have noticed is missing in SAB:

  • In the original Windows 11 task bar in the window preview function there are snap groups previews shown always on the rightmost side next to the window preview thumbnails. Those snap groups previews are missing in SAB.
  • In the original Windows 11 task bar there are the most recent searches shown when hovering over the search icon. Those are missing when hovering over the search icon with SAB active.
  • The new animations from the original Windows 11 task bar (for example when hovering over or clicking an application icon) are missing in SAB.

My conclusion is that SAB injects some older Windows taskbar DLLs into the system which lack those newer functions and animations.

My question: Is it possible to add those Windows 11 features into SAB?

Also: It would be great if there were an option to have SAB start menu enabled, but at the same time use the Windows Search instead of the built in search of SAB. So that the SAB start menu invokes the Windows Search when users hit the Windows Key (WinKey) on the keyboard and start typing. Currently this is only possible when the SAB Start Menu is turned off.

Updated to new build and it fixed one little issue I had with the Old/New Context Menu and I upgraded my License so thanks.

I admit I may be clueless but some of the settings do not appear to do much so would be graceful for some kind of "Read Me" that explains what some of the less obvious settings do.

Anyways, great work @Tihiy! Much better than Start11 in my opinion.

Absolutely. Better than many other start menu/taskbar replacements, too.

Enabled "Use new font for classic UI"

Chinese font would be the old "Simsun"

It should be "Segoe UI Variable" + "Microsoft YaHei" like in StartAllBackConfiguration

It seems change SystemLink in registry like the uploaded reg file can fix thisSystemLink.reg

Okay, this one should do it


If fails, please monitor debug output 


The line I'm interested in is like '[6988] XXX PACKAGE Microsoft.SecHealthUI_8wekyb3d8bbwe FULL NAME Microsoft.SecHealthUI_1000.22000.1.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe NEWFULLNAME Microsoft.SecHealthUI_1000.22000.1.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe'
