Any news here?

 

I am using Windows 8 Pro 32-Bit the newest Version 1.2 isn't working i get the message : this app can't run on your PC

 

the earlier version i think 1b is working but after restart it doesn't start with the saved settings and i get the normal startmenu.

 

I really want this app working i googled like hell for the problem but found nothing.

This app is great. The full screen + taskbar is nice option. Is it possible to make the start screen stay without switching to regular desktop. It is like having the start screen as desktop along with taskbar, start menu etc...

I'm so damn lucky to have found an alternative called ImmersiveTaille v2 that is do exactly the same thing as Start Menu Modifier or maybe StartIsBack (except the start menu). It works for my Windows 8.1 32-bit.

The app is really cool but can you release another version that could dock it to left and right side of the screen.

Looks great, although I'm quite happy with the Screen. I'd love to see something like this for 7, so I don't have to use the menu at work.

Some people see going backwards as progression.

 

Including Microsoft who should be returning the Start Menu in 8.1U2. For this reason, people use it and it's very productive. I do like MS' implementation as it has been shown so far in previews.

 

There's a reason MS is bringing it back, and a reason for apps like this ... the Start Menu works, and removing it was a giant leap backwards as far as desktop/keyboard/mouse/MDI/Multitasking/Data-centric computing goes.
