Will it be in Windows 8 Store ? as Desktop App ?

Aside from being out of place issue, it would not pass certification because of its loading / hooking methods. I could probably create a version which can pass certification, but i see no reason to do it.

U could get better sales from it... and more awareness... I'm sure it will be in the Top apps quickly

Very impressive! The themes look great and combining the context menu is something a couple users asked for. Although they'll have to wait until I have a way to roll this out to 300+ users.

Please add in FAQ page silent switches

silent install (/silent for user install; /elevated /silent for machine install; if machine install must be run with admin rights; does not start explorer back)

Not sure what you changed there mate but I am getting some strange results now with the user pictures when using it with some of my other custom themes, last version was working correctly but now the user picture frame is placed too high, seems there are new properties that override the ones from the theme.

Edit: never mind I figured it out, I see that you changed some of the properties to read from the main style and not the one from the style folder in SIB.

I'd say this is waaaay out of StartIsBack's context.

Are there any Start Menu/Screen replacers in the app store now? I was under the impression that such apps wouldn't be allowed into the store.

Yes, there are at least three. I just came from the Windows Store and doing a quick search for "Start Menu" returned these three:

Pokki Start Menu, Classic Start Button, StartFinity

I'd like to make a feature suggestion, but definitely not a priority; just something to keep in the back of your mind for possible implementation later on:

Some sort of on the fly preview of the Start Menu when changing the visual style, either in a thumbnail or actually always show the actual Start Menu while in the Start Menu configuration or at least in the Appearance section.

This way it would be easier to spot any and all differences between different visual styles, without hitting Apply and then opening the Start Menu. The differences can be slightly subtle. :D

All that said, wonderful work on this; it's beautiful and thanks for the combined right-click context menu!
