Can't use win 11 without this 🙃
Really nice for those who want the old school win7 start menu.

Same here, absolute unusable without this. Thanks R2R.

Agree with the previous posts.
This tool is sooo good even R2R cracked it, meaning probably they use it themselves.
[2009] Sorry for my English. I'm working on it
[2017] I'm beginning to improve. Hell yeah, I'm a fast learner :D

quote by masterchief2001Anyone who voluntarily uses Windows 11 has much bigger problems than not having a classic start menu and UI, just saying.

doesn't mean we don't attempt to solve those we can.

quote by Hugo Vinagrecan you please tell what are those problems? honest question from someone who is running win8 and can run every audio app, but cant play games anymore, because win8 does not support directx12. im curious with what problems i might find in a new os.

it's crazy buggy, things just stop working randomly, it does things behind your back, that you can barely control with a lot of research - but not really - it takes a lot of useless space, and the interface is shit. to name just a few.

Yeh, MS is like "if you thought W10 was bad... we have W11 to offer you". It's "too much" on too many levels and lacking too many features in the usability department. I examined it thoroughly and am glad I'm using Debian Linux which I configured myself from the ground up completely to my taste, from drivers and services to GUI. And it is all mine! (under my control)

With that out of the way, I have a question. I heard there are different versions of Start-All-Back for W10 and W11. So this one is for W11 only?? They should name it differently for W11, W10, W8, W7... This naming thing has always been an issue with "Start is Back".

Why not "Start is Back 11", "Start is Back 10" etc? Just rhetorical Q. :)
