Would you be willing to upload the png you used for the Start.exe? I'd like to use it Classic Shell. :p

Now, could you somehow recreate that "super" menu you get when right clicking the corner in the jumplist?

Cheating the system is a step backwards in IMHO.

I hope you don't mind, but I ended up extracting your .exe with 7-zip and made a Classic Shell Start button png. The icon slightly moves up and down to make a quasi animation (I displaced the dimensions slightly).

Nice! I don't mind at all. Good work! I dont consider myself a programmer in the smallest form, so whatever anyone wants to do to improve on what I did is more than welcome!

I dont think I am necessarily cheating the system. If you've ever tried to control a metro UI interface inside a full screen RDP session you can appreciate how frustrating it can be to get the mouse cursor just right. It's not a replacement for the UI in the way that the other start menu replacement programs are.

I was trying to think of a way to get the winkey+x right click menu from the pinned icon, but I can't figure it out because its just a pinned shortcut in the taskbar. If someone could figure that out that would be awesome.

Isn't it easier just to press the Start button on the keyboard to switch between the start screen and the desktop?

The shutdown button is a very nice idea however :)

What else can you do when the system has design flaws though?

I personally think it would have been a nice touch for the system to know if it's running bare metal or in a VPC or RDP situation and adjust accordingly.

It is, but like I said sometimes I am dealing with servers that actually have keyboards with no winkey. I know ctrl+esc works, but this is simple. To each their own.

Sorry to bring this dead post back alive, but using the Win+X editor I was able to modify the Win+X menu to add the shutdown app at the bottom of group 1. Finding this method the easiest, quickest way to get to the shutdown prompt for users (including myself).
