Start Menu Problem

Saturday, June 25, 2016 by lubeckano | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Hi guys, sorry for pesting so much...I'm a newbie so I'll need some guidance...but I'll get there!

Guys, the skins I download shows very nice Start Menu graphics, so I purchase skins mainly because of that (4D Collider & VOX (including wallpaper problem); for example).

I read somewhere here about a guy who experienced the same problem (also on Windows 10), and he was advised to install Start10 and reboot...THAT did the trick for him...but NOT FOR ME! I still have the normal Windows 10 Start Menu popping up.

What am I doing wrong?:

1) My Start Menu displays incorrectly; and

2) many times, the advertised wallpaper does not display on my screen, but my old wallpaper still appears.

There is another skin (by neone6 - Holocyan) which I really like, but I don't want to waste $8 If that beautiful Start Menu does not work.

Thanks & Regards

Hans

1: You have to select the Windows 7 Style start menu within  Start 10 Config UI

2: Wallpapers are not automatically applied, they are sometimes included with a blind but you need to apply them yourself. You can put the downloaded wall in the Wallpapers folder found in your WindowBlinds  folder (C:Users/Public Documents/Windowblinds in Win7) and they will then show up in the WB UI, making them easier to access when changing blinds.

I always Include what is stated in the description of that particular skin.

-Usually there is a Zip folder & a folder for each type of skin inside the Zip for personal use in any way you like.
