Hi!

I want to buy a license for startisback, but on the buy page: http://www.startisback.com/#buy-tab you can only buy a license for 2 computers.
I only have 1 pc and i have no need for a license for 2 computers, is there a way to get a 1 pc license?

Thanks.


$3 is too much for you ?

What a pointless reply. I agree that there should be option for 1 licence only. I only have 1 PC and would never use the second one.

Yes. Given that Windows 8.1 probably bring back start button, and then there's probably no reason to use startisback anymore.

Then why not to wait? I am sure the price of one license is $3. Let's say, you get a second one free.

And as that website clearly says

"Don’t get too excited, though: As it stands, the resurrected Start button will still open the new, tile-based Metro Start screen. For now, there doesn’t seem to be any plans to bring back the old Start menu — for that, you’ll still need to install a third-party Start button/menu app."

So Windows 8.1 probably won't stop people wanting to buy startisback anyway

A license for two PCs is a good idea because maybe you will have another computer in the future. And the key will be available to use at that time.

PS. Installed the new version yesterday. He said "maybe" and then forgot all about it!

I wasn't replying to that, but the guy above me :whistle:
I doubt it'll be 7 style start menu anyway.

That is the rumor, but it's just a start button, and I believe it only launches the Start page. I don't recall reading/hearing anything about Microsoft bringing back the Start Menu.

From which version of SIB did folder Start Apps on Start Menu show the icons of the store applications? I just noticed this today!
However, it also displays some applications that I've uninstalled from Start Screen. And I can't delete them by pressing Delete key.

If you right-click on the folder in the start-menu, it will give you the option to open the folder in explorer BUT I can't say if it's "safe" to simply delete the icons from there.

Since 2.0. Do those apps still work? Does reboot helps? What's the names of the apps?

Pengipete,
It seems that I only unpinned them from Start Screen, not uninstalled them properly. After some searching and uninstalling again, they're all gone now. The rest apps work fine whether I run them from folder Start Apps or from Start Screen.

Tihiy,
I rarely check All Programs on Start Menu. I remember when I last opened folder Start Apps (not sure in what old version), all of the applications had the same icons, something like a sheet of white paper! I clicked on the folder today and found out all the applications have their own icons. Feel like I am behind the times now!

Btw, I seldom run Metro applications from the desktop, almost always go to Start Screen and run them there. It's much faster and easier to find them because they are arranged in groups.

Thank you both for replying.

Do you mean that you have icons but they are plain, white squares - or do you mean that there are no icons showing at all? If you have no icons, do you have the text naming the programs or is the program list itself completely empty? If that's the case, have you registered your copy of SIS - if not and the free trial has expired, it will remain blank unless you register and pay the (very reasonable) fee.

OK, here is what I guess Stelian88 wants to says:
- When he puts the mouse on All Programs, it shows the next page of Start Menu properly. Notice that the scroll bar is on the top. (pic 1)
- Then he returns to the previous page of Start Menu, and again goes back to the next page. This time the scroll bar is at the bottom, not on the top as it should be. (pic 2)

Anyone has the same problem? I've tried the above steps and found the scroll bar always on the top. Actually, it will have the same position where I drag it up or down before I return to the first page of Start Menu.

There are not so many items on the next page of my Start Menu. The scroll bar only appears when I open some folders there. If I completely leave the Start Menu, all the folders will collapse and the scroll bar won't be there anymore.

Let's wait for someone who has a long list of items on the second page to check this problem for you.

I can confirm that the menu remains in its "last used state" when re-opened - so if the last use had it scrolled to the bottom, it reopens already scrolled to the same place.

Aloha..

I'm with you in not having sufficient entries in the start menu to even see the scollbar - but temporarily reducing the number of "recent programs" let me see what happens (makes the menu-window that much smaller). And thanks for explaining it clearly - I was struggling to understand until your post number 1821
