Beta version of StartIsBack for Windows 10 is now available

StartIsBack for Windows 10

StartIsBack++ restores original Windows 10 start menu with all its features: search, pinned and recently used apps, fully customizable settings. Start button and Start menu look and behave exactly as they used to in Windows 7.

What's hot about StartIsBack on Windows 10 now:

  • Live badges for modern apps on taskbar and Start menu!
  • Ability to reduce resource usage by disabling newer Start menu and Cortana processes from prelaunching
  • Ability to use adequately sized (32x32) large icons and larger start menu button on taskbar
  • Modern icon glyphs on Start menu right hand pane
  • Modern blur, drop shadow and immersive context menus for start menu
  • Fully dynamic DPI aware start menu and configuration app
  • Lots of new minor additions and tweaks

What's new in StartIsBack++ Beta 3:

  • Modern icons on taskbar and start menu now show live badges
  • Modern icons are shown in start menu without color plating

Known Issues:

  • StartIsBack++ requires Windows 10 RTM build. As there is no such thing yet, it will work with build 10147. It should work with earlier builds as well, but they're buggier
  • Some settings may not work
  • DWM blur may have display artifacts
