Start Is Back - 2.1 release

Sontawila,

There is a button "Set default values" on Properties > Start Menu, have you tried it yet? But I don't think changing the settings of SIB can cause such problems. Isn't it that an application should allow users to change the options to whatever he likes without causing any problems?

My graphics card is ATI Radeon HD 5570, and I've changed some settings to please my eyes. No issues so far.

Sontawila...

It's a bit difficult to diagnose a problem you used to have when you say things like "I currently have everything on default value..." That implies that you had non-default "things" when you had SiB installed and were having the crashes.

Did you have patches, hacks, themes, betas or non-default settings or applications in use at the time you had the crashes - not just relating to SiB but anywhere on your computer?

It is entirely possible for a perfectly good, stable application to be "involved in" crashing a pc - if another, unsafe application reacts with it. In that case, removing the safe application can stop the crashes occuring but the real cause would still remain.

Without at least that basic information, it will be completely impossible for anyone to even start to help you or decide what caused your reported crashes. All anyone can say for now is that this app is very popular and there is no widespread reporting of faults such as you are reporting - which suggests that there is something specific to your pc that is involved - if not actually the real cause.

The one thing I would say - and it also relates to your "I currently have everything on default value" comment...

If you have now re-installed SiB and everything else on your pc is completely standard - no hacks, betas - but that wasn't previously the case, you need to just leave it running a while and see if the problem has disappeared. If it has, you can retry any other patches etc that you were previously using until you find the one that actually caused the crashes.

Tihiy,

The default style of SIB doesn't show user picture on Start Menu when I apply theme Snowy 3.0. Other styles are OK. I don't know if this happens to anyone else or just my computer.

Because the guy who made the theme removed the user picture frame in theme.

2.1 is ready to go except the orb.

If anyone wants to see a good orb in StartIsBack, please write me.

Start buttons from deviantArt should do if they don't contain copyrighted images and author approves use of his work.

If you can create good orb (Start button picture), please contact me via e-mail, the reward is implied.

No, he didn't remove it. The user picture on other styles still display. It only doesn't show on the default style of SIB. But I am using another theme now.

It's hard to find a start button that doesn't contain Windows logo! I'll have these added to the Appearance to have more choice:

I'll also get this although it is a Windows logo!

Tihiy, will the white Windows 8 start button stay? Or are all of them being scrapped? I will backup and or find the button elsewhere if need be.

Hi,

Is it possible to configure StartIsBack so that program sub-folders are listed before individual program items ?

i.e.

Accessories

.....Administration Tools

.....Windows system

.....Notepad

.....Calculator

and not

Accessories

.....Notepad

.....Calculator

.....Administration Tools

.....Windows system

Thanks a lot,

Arc

Hello,

First thank you for creating this metro ui killer!

Is it possible to change the order of the shut-down sub-menu? (To have hibernate at the end of the list and not restart)

Thank you.

I know the thread is pretty long now however that was already discussed. The end result was no, the way it is now is how Win7 handles it and it's how it will remain. But that maybe an option will pop up later.

Very Good program.. the only reason I can withstand windows is due to this nice little program. I see that there is new version 2.1 RC2. I can't find any changelog so I don't know what is new in this version beside the option to show taskbar on start screen which in my opinion is kind of useless because as soon as you try to open something through taskbar we are back to desktop. Overall I really like this program specially the feature to put picture back on start menu. Anyone knows any good program to change windows 8 login page same as windows 7. I have seen couple of program which changes windows 7 login to windows 8 style login but not the other way around.

I just tried to use the 'lost license key' form, but each time I try I get an "Unable to send email!" error.

I somehow lost my key and need it resent.
