Stardock released v1.22 of Start11 today. Start11 is a program that allows users to customize the Windows Start menu and taskbar for Windows 10 and 11 and can make the Start menu appear as it did in previous versions of Windows, enhancing the experience with new features and functionality.
This is a minor release, but at the same time it does bring a couple of new features to be aware of, the full changelog is below:
- If you are using Edge, your tabs will now show in search results
- Search results now prioritize frequently used apps/content
- Added additional language support
- Option for seconds on clock to Start11 configuration screen (taskbar) for dev and beta channel only
- Lots of bug fixes
As you may have noticed, aside from now displaying opened Tabs in Edge in Start menu search results, it is also now possible to enable seconds on the Taskbar system tray clock.
yeah, microsoft has done quite a bit of work to change the taskbar from the initial Win11 release to the new beta/dev builds - makes it easier to tweak on the new taskbar than the old stuff.— Brad Sams (@bdsams) May 3, 2022
However, as pointed out by Brad Sams, VP and General Manager of Software at Stardock, seconds can only be turned on for builds in the Beta or Dev Channel, so unfortunately it will not work in the current generally available Windows 11 release.
The main Start11 v1.2 release focused specifically on enhancing the Windows 11 experience by re-building the taskbar from the ground up to add new functionality. With this release, users will be able to ungroup items on their taskbar with their windows centered or left-aligned.
Start11 is currently available for $5.99. There is an upgrade option for users of Start8 and Start10, it is also included with Object Desktop. For more information, visit www.stardock.com. You can view the full press release and changelog for Start 1.22 here.
