Start Is Back - 2.1 release

Recommended Posts

Windows 8 renamed some of the options - eg. it's now Sign out instead of Log off, and at least in Slovenian, the translation changed accordingly. You can see that these things changed in the classic shutdown dialog - click an empty part of the desktop or taskbar and press Alt+F4, then check the drop-down entries.

Yeah sometimes I confuse my fiance when I tell her to log out or reboot. :D

Ok but it's possible to have

Redémarrer

-----------------

Veille

and not

Veille

Redémarrer

Have a separator bar between Redémarrer and Veille (for clarity, like Windows 7)

Thanks

One more interesting feature request.

Metro Apps can be used in the 1/5 of the screen mini mode, is it possible to have WIn+Tab switching mini side apps and not covering desktop ?

StartIsBack 2.0RC3

http://www.startisback.com/StartIsBack_setupRC.exe

This is the last RC. If no important bugs arise, that will be Release version. Just a few translations missing.

What's new:

- StartIsBack is now configurable by group policy. It was already 100% compatible with Windows 7 policy but now all StartIsBack options are fully configurable / restrictable with group policy.

Download group policy template: http://www.startisback.com/GroupPolicy.zip

- It also has a setting to enable StartIsBack in Safe Mode (SOFTWARE\StartIsBack\"EnableInSafeMode"=1)

- You can activate StartIsBack license online automatically from command line: StartIsBackCfg.exe /activate [/elevated] YOUR-LICENSE-KEY-NUMBER

I should write a Deployment Guide soon.

That aside, release contains few minor fixes and improvements. Just a few small steps left to 2.0 release.

Is it possible to create a "Metro Apps" folder in "All Programs" with app shortcuts for faster access so we don't have to add them manually after every re-install? (see my photo link below).

Excuse me, but such folder ('Start Apps') is already created by default in 2.0. :o

Just a slight addition to your "Install Group Policy.txt" for those with newer servers. Those policy files go in:

\\<yourdomainname>\SYSVOL\<yourdomainname>\Policies\PolicyDefinitions

So far no problems with the GPs. I'll keep turning them on and off so make sure each does it's job.

I am using 2.0RC3 and There is no Start Apps folder Listed with any Metro Apps!

Tell me the following:

- What install type are you using (per user or per pc)

- What setting 'Start Apps' is (configuration - Start Menu - Start Apps)

- Does searching for Weather (for example) find modern app

- You can also check if StartIsBack32.dll/StartIsBack64.dll have version 2.0.0.3.
