New with Start11 v2 are three Start menu styles that seamlessly blend with Windows 10 and 11. Each new style is fully customizable from top to bottom, focusing on a different theme: Apps, Professional, and Launcher.

Start11 v2 is also enhancing the taskbar with new functionality that makes it faster to access your files and folders. You can pin any folder to the taskbar and access its contents without opening File Explorer.

And new today, you can round the corners of the taskbar to give it a modern design that makes your
desktop look like the next version of Windows. "This is a significant update and ships with more than two dozen new features," said Brad Sams, General Manager of Stardock Software. "And we are also introducing new enterprise features as well, including the ability to load a Start menu configuration on login, kiosk functionality that lets you lock components of the Start menu, and improved tooling for advanced deployments."
