I am a registered user of Startisback. Formerlly with Win 8 Pro x64..
I updated today to Win 8.1 Pro x64. At first no more start menu. I downloaded and installed the newest startisback for 8.1, 1.01.
Now I have a Start menu back, but I lost everything I had in it before. Yes, the secondary start menu works when one clicks Programs (that menu is still how I set it), but the primary one has lost all that I had put in it before. (The one that one first sees on clicking the Start Button,)
Where are those settings for the first start menu one sees, with the items I added to it? Can I get them back? Or do I have to rebuild it from scratch? (One would think though, that SIB would have saved that data some place, from the Win8 version. I should not have to take the time to rebuild it from scratch.)
If I have to rebuild it, another problem. In Explorer, in looking at files and folders, I no longer see the option “Pin to Start Menu”, even if I hold down Shift. (“Pin to Start” is there, but that is for pinning to the Metro Start Screen, not what I want.) How do I get back “Pin to Start Menu”?
And again—is my former Start menu (with the items I added to it) still available somewhere, for me to recover? Didn't SIB save that configuration somehow?
PS I am actually amazed that one still needs SIB or another 3rd party app in order to have a start menu in Win 8.1 There were so many complaints about that with Win8, and so many use these 3rd party programs to get it back. So they added back a start button and one can boot to desktop in 8.1 (without a 3rd party app), but still no Start Menu! Incredibly stupid of Microsoft. But I guess good for you (SIB developer), as people still need your app.
