StartAllBack For Windows 11 has been released.
It's an RC release. I haven't tested it yet as I have Start11 installed.

Edit: I have now tested it. It's working quite good.
Apart from a great start menu, you can also have the Enhanced Classic Taskbar back.
This means (for example) that you can have an uncombined and unlocked Taskbar.
You will now also be able to enhance the Taskbar clock using T-Clock Redux or similar.

You can also change Windows Explorer to Ribbon UI or Simple UI.

You can get it here.

Preview 2 is available.
Whilst not a fan of tools like startisback, unless the start menu is significantly improved from its truly dire design, I shall have to revert to such tools when I finally decide to upgrade to W11.

I actually liked the W10 start menu once the ability to group icons in tiles was added. Losing this ability is a truly retrograde step.

I guess it is too much to hope somebody emulates the W10 start menu, or finds a way to reinstate it (MS have probably now deleted the code).

I always feel like i am in the minority, but the start menu to me is more or less irrelevant to getting work done. I have the most frequently used apps pinned to my taskbar and i start them from there.

For anything that I use only occasionally, i hit the windows key and start typing something (for example, notepad) and hit enter.

On my work pc, attached to a widescreen monitor, I rather agree, but on my personal laptop, I prefer to group in tiles (smaller screen).

The Taskbar enhancements are very good too.
I think they are off by default.

Would be even nicer if a feature could be added. I'd like to be able to click and drag taskbar buttons / the buttons of open windows.

For some reason, I get (2) on many of my Start Menu shortcuts.

eb_smenu2-2.png

I used to have Start10 on Windows 10.

I then upgraded to Windows 11, removed Start10, installed StartAllBack and re-added the Start Menu shortcuts.

Any ideas?
