    It is not "my program". It is just a standard windows explorer window. Only has normal, usual settings for such windows.

    But, many like it better than flipping screens or the style of the Start screen & Tiles or of Win+Q.

    Alright I'm going to say something about this.

    Just because win8 "achieved all design goals" for Microsoft doesn't automatically mean it "achieved all goals" of every customer or even a vast majority of its customers. Otherwise it wouldn't have been "under expectations" of sales goals. The fact that it has been "under expectations" (as oppose to "meeting or exceeding expectations" as far as Windows 7 was concerned) points to its flaws.

    When it comes to the actual end users (that's us), it's OUR goals that matters, not Microsoft's, nor any of its fans.

    As far as MY requirements are concerned, Win8 came under expectations.

    Even Paul Thurrott, owner of Supersite for Windows probably the biggest fan of the WIndows OS on planet Earth, had some choice words for Windows 8:

    http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/wi...lame-go-around

    Windows 8. It’s a floor wax. No, it’s a dessert topping. Microsoft’s new whatever-the-F-it-is operating system is a confusing, Frankenstein’s monster mix of old and new that hides a great desktop upgrade under a crazy Metro front-end. It’s touch-first, as Microsoft says, but really it’s touch whether you want it or not (or have it or not), and the firm’s inability to give its own customers the choice to pick which UI they want is what really makes Windows 8 confounding to users. I actually like Windows 8 quite a bit and can’t imagine switching back. But I do understand the complaints of customers who aren’t getting what they wanted or asked for.
    Some more points of the Windows 8 failure he made is here:

    Windows 8: Death by a Thousand Cuts?

    ...He even wrote a five part SERIES on how to FIX Windows 8.

    http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/fi...part-1-app-bar

    http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/fi...t-5-built-apps

    Now, let's put this baby to sleep, shall we? If you doubt just how much Thurrott knows about Windows in general, check out his site. There are a whole lot more examples there of how Windows 8 is coming up short.

    We can argue and fuss until pigs fly and the cows come home but that won't change the FACT that Windows 8 is INDEED "below expectations" for a great number of people and that's why they look for stuff (like 3rd party software) to "fix" Window 8, for them.

    If you are not one "of them", then that's fine and dandy... Please just kindly stop the nudging and needling. We are providing feedback on Startmenu 8 here, not trying to justify why we're using it. Thanks.

    I'm not keen on using a start-menu addy in Windows 8.....I'm fine with using the Charms/Search function and pinning certain things to the taskbar. Just don't see why anyone would want to try to make Win8 look like Win7. No need for the start-menu.

    Ah, yep, Jimmy, you're right, that's true, no need, @ all.

    I do have, know a way (which is listed in this forum) that one can have ALL applications (Store APPs & others) in a window on the Taskbar... ergo, no need to leave Desktop; if, might interest you. Also, using Power Users menu, APP Bar & Desktop Toolbar makes for a pleasant, productive environment.

    Cheers,

    Nope, not interested. I don't "see" why some people can't just let others use what they like to use.

    There's something else than just bare practicality and that's aesthetics. But then again, I'm not going to explain that point because people will not understand if they don't want to.

    You "don't see" why I need it, and I "don't see" how anyone "can't see" that there is a need. Again, absolutely useless to a thread which purpose isn't to justify the use of the utility.

    Oh, almost forgot why I'm here today.

    Giving feedback to the new version 1.0.

    All the bugs that I've previously reported have apparently been squashed. Good work, IObit.
