Hello!

Is it possible to configure the UI in Windows 11 (22H2) in the following way?

Start button: left aligned
Start menu: center aligned

Thanks for your ideas!

The default install of Win11 has only 2 positions for the Taskbar, centered and left aligned. Left is similar to Win10 and earlier. There are programs available to customize things, I don't use them as I need to see what my clients see.

I know, but I was hoping for a trick. Maybe in the registry or something. Maybe a third-party tool ...

I use START11 from stardock.com . Works like a charm. I think I figured out why many of us have problems with the default Start11 UI. I think because we have been reading our Start Menus vertically going way, way back in time, that the horizontal position of the icons is giving many of us eye spasms (so to speak). I know once I went back to vertical icons with Start11 my eyes felt good again. :geek:
