This is an OS bug related to dynamic DPI scaling. Rebooting or logging in again helps.

I'm guessing there isn't a workaround that you can implement.

I'm also guessing the "Properties" button appearance is also related. (Screenshot attached).

Also, I would really appreciate the option to show "shut down" and "restart" commands in the Start menu when using RDC. I'm assuming this has been requested previously, so just adding my 2 cents. :P

Just updated to 3.3.9d, and I'm mildly disappointed - in that this version seems to be supportive of Microsoft's efforts to drain all the color from our lives. :unsure:

There is a secret option on Explorer page. Double-click area around 'Details page on the bottom'.

Can't find this - not that it'll make a whole lot of difference, but I should at least be able to get back the yellow folder icon in the title bar.

Thank you for this program. I've purchased a license key for myself (for the simplified start menu, search, and more consistent dark mode) and my mother (to move her taskbar to the side). It's amazing that a company as huge as Microsoft can't be bothered to deal with those.

 

I do have a request: Can you make MMC (Microsoft Management Console) snap-ins like Device Manager/Event Viewer in dark mode, as well? I did a quick search on this forum and haven't found anyone else requesting the same yet.

Anyone else who has multimonitors and labels on the secondary disabled? I experience that sometimes the setting just resets itself to hiding labels.

Seems to ignore MinWidth.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]
"MinWidth"="250"

How do I uninstall StartAllBack for Windows 11? 


This app isn't working right for me. It's always crashing (windows explorer).

I need a crash dump please

1) Import this registry key http://startisback.com/Enable Crash Reports.reg

2) Create C:\dumps folder

3) Crash

4) Send me dmp file from C:\dumps folder

 

Uninstalling is the same as other apps - via Installed apps / Add-Remove programs

I used Revo to uninstall it. It showed up there. I don't have a crash dump. However, I suggest you view your own WIndows reliability history log in Control Panel, Maintenance and Security, Maintenance  and see if the same Explorer error appears (even after updating to the latest version). 

Here is what Windows reliability history shows for me:

If I manage to reliably crash explorer at the SIB volume (hundreds of thousands of users), Microsoft writes me an angry letter and then comes to repeatedly punch me.

This is not the case here, moreover, crash you experience would be known since 2012

I've prepared a special version to work this around 

http://startisback.com/StartAllBack_setup.exe

However I would like that you try to find the culprit that triggers this crash, try to narrow down the scenario or capture a crash dump

Actually seems to be after each reboot that the setting is lost and have to be re-set.

I don't see what could reset it. Works even if you toggle classic taskbar.
