Windows 11 21H2
Using StartAllBack 3.3 on Dell Laptop running Windows 11 21H2. I'm running as local administrator on this PC. For some reason the Run As Administrator option has disappeared from the content menu of any application in the StartAllBack Start menu. Run As Administrator has also disappeared as an option from fdapps pinned to the taskbar. If I disable StartAllBack and use the Windows 11 Start menu the Run As Admin option IS available. It's also available if I navigate to an app's folder and right click on the app. I'm puzzled if this is a StartAllBack issue or some weird issue with my Windows 11 install. I've done the usual troubleshooting recommended online like running SFC /scannow. Any suggestions what to try next are appreciated.

It's not windows. Whenever a windows update affects the GUI, third party apps that alter the appearance of the GUI (like startisback and Start11 have to update their apps accordingly for them to work as expected. Since disabling startisback fixes the issue, it proves the problem is in startisback, not Windows. I do know the windows update that came out yesterday addressed quite a few things in start and taskbar.

It's the price you pay for running any third party app. You have to wait now for the developers to fix their app.

I just got a update for StartAllBack. It's now shows version 3.3.1.
