This shouldn't be the case with version 1.2.1 or later. This is normal and expected for non-bottom taskbar position though.

Well, I've been using this. and I have to say I love it!. I want to say thanks for this great piece of software!

Anyways Enough of the praise you already receive enough :P

Well I have a most likely dumb question. Is there anyway I can like temporally turn the start menu off and bring back the hot corner for the start screen?

I'm just curios that's all.

You can't turn it off but did you know that if you middle-click (click the scroll-wheel) the Start Orb, it'll open the Start Screen? Only if you don't change the default behavior of the scroll-wheel click, though.

No I didn't know that, Man thanks!. That's pretty nice to know.

The only (minor) problem I have is that most of the time, when using the search box, the search results will not have their icon but a 'blank page' icon. The proper icons will only show if I move or hover the mouse pointer over them, or move the selection with the keyboard arrows. Problem remains in 1.3RC0.

I haven't seen this issue yet and can't reproduce it.

It happens on the main menu too, sometimes - not just in the search results.

Please try replicating this.

Thanks,

John

I don't reproduce this, you're the first one to report this. Can you check if it happens without StartIsBack? It does not change bands nor interferes with saving process.

I also can't reproduce this. I first added the Address tool bar, then rebooted, it was still there, so I added the Desktop and Links toolbars as well, rebooted and it was still there. I tested with v1.2.1 in VMWare Workstation since that's what you were running when you had the problem.

I've seen this happen after a misconfiguration while using another program - Yamicsoft Windows 8 Manager. If this is not so in your particular case, the TaskBar ToolBars might have somehow got disabled in your registry. B)

Thank you for your quick support.

Hi Tihy!

I'm trying your excellent StartIsBack and even when all shortcuts keep being there all hotkeys stopped working.

What did I wrong? How may I recover hotkeys?

Thanks!

Which hotkeys? The ones you specified for shortcuts or system hotkeys? Where are shortcuts located? Both work for me.

Which hotkeys?... Both work for me.

None of them. Something went wrong when I installed it.

I wished to know if that is normal, now I'll check it all and hope I'll fix it.

My excuses for bothering you.

Thank you very much.

Cannie

PS: I did not notice that this problem already existed at Windows 7 before installing the new OS over it. It was fixed using "Windows Repair".

Here's another screen edges issue.

After installing 1.3b0 the desktop icons flicker issue I had reported back at the pre-1.0 beta3 reappeared briefly.

Again, with the "Top Screen Edge (snap) disabled, when I moved the mouse pointer at the top of the4 screen on the desktop the desktop icons would flicker.

Enabling the Top Screen Edge, hitting the Apply button and then re-disabling it fixed it AFAICT but this together with the above post seem to indicate a possible reverting of the bug(s).

Hi every one

I am using StartIsback v 1.3 RC1

I noticed when I put the cursor in All program (text) after raising the start menu and chose properties It opens the user program folder instead of showing the configuration window of StartIsBack

I don't know if any one else experienced the same behavior ?

regards
