What is the theme you're using?

I have a vista taskbar theme that I have been using since the past few major updates and it has always worked. I know it's not part of the main release but as I said it's worked all up until this latest release. It's the msstyle ripped right from Vista.

Well you get it from Windows Vista. But the link my friend had expired so I Uploaded the original vista msstyles.

This is not the original Vista msstyles, it has been created on Windows 8 by the looks of it to be used on Windows 8 but can probably be fixed.

 

OK the problem is because Tihiy has the jumplist text colors being linked to the Start Menu Places List Extended instead of Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Jump List > Panels > Jump List User where it should be, sadly I am not able to fix that for you.

OK I fixed the jumplist text as well as the show desktop button but this also results in the start menu extended list view having black text so not the best solution, the best solution would be for Tihiy to use the correct location for the jump list text colors.

Hi everyone,

with StartIsBack++ 2.5 on Windows 10 x64 v1703 i noticed a small problem: After the logon and also after changing any StartIsBack settings, the first taskbar jumplist that is opened is rendered wrong (Capture-1.png)

Every taskbar jumplist that is opened after that is rendered correct (Capture-2.png)

Can anyone confirm that?

Awesome work Tihiy, still have a a couple of other issues that would love to see fixed though, when applying styles through SiB the taskband content margins are being ignored, specificity  Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > BackgroundBottom and Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBand > TaskItemButton, it would great if those content margins could be read as that adjusts the height of the taskbar as well as the task item spacing, also I really wish we could have the font properties for the taskbar clock returned to the original location in Taskbar & System Tray > System Tray > Basic > Clock as well as the ability to adjust the content margins for the clock, also one of my members pointed out the skinning bug on the the right click taskbar tool bar flyout, I know I have mentioned this to you before but thought I would bring it up again.

 

Thanks again for all the hard work you put in to this project, we really do appreciate it and it makes all our lives so much nicer on Windows 10 :)

something changed on 2.5.1 - not much and subtle - on earlier versions the icon on the toolbar changed when i got a mail - i use emclient which is hit and miss at showing new mail in the notification area so the change to the taskbar icon was very useful

not sure what it was on 2.5 as i dont think i used it but went from RC4 to 2.5.1

the image showing a mail is from 2.5 RC4

images show difference
