Stardock Releases Start11 v1.36

Friday, December 9, 2022 by redskittlesonly | Discussion: Start News

Stardock released Start11 v1.36, which brings with it numerous bug fixes, compatibility updates for using with other Stardock products, and a couple of optimizations on startup. You can download the update now from your Stardock account, or by going to "about" inside the application and checking for updates.

In this release (you can read the entire changelog here), we focused on squashing many of the bugs that have been reported, as well as enhancing compatibility with WindowBlinds 11. For those who are applying the various styles that WindowBlinds provides out of the box, you will find a more consistent experience when using both of the applications in tandem.

Along with the bug fixes, we have made enhancements to the startup process for Start11 that should resolve any visual impairments experienced after a reboot. There are also quite a few tweaks to how various assets are displayed when using either light or dark mode with Windows 11.

Our goal with v1.35 was to focus on direct user feedback regarding where the app needed improvement. An application like Start11 has an almost unlimited number of deployment scenarios, and while we do test and validate our products before shipping, there will also be edge cases that may not show up in our reviews.

We always value the feedback of our customers and if you have suggestions about features we should add to Start11, make sure to let us know in our forums or the comments below.

I love Start11. I was able to put my Windows 11 back the way I want it after Microsoft changed things and forced certain settings on us.  Now they are doing it again. They changed the Search button on the Taskbar to be a huge BAR instead of a button and we cannot change it.  It has to be ON or OFF so I have mine set to OFF.  I just read an article that Microsoft has heard our complaints and is working on a fix.  Why can't they just put it back the way it was?  I'm going to post the article I just read and hopefully Stardock can give us back the ability to have a small button on the taskbar instead of a huge bar.

Thank you for all you do to help us keep Windows the way we want it.
