Today, we released an update for Start11 that enables new functionality that is designed to work with retail builds of Windows 11. If you're still a Windows 10 user, don't worry - and Start11 continues to support that OS as well!
In v1.3, we implemented new functionality for replacing your Start menu icon when centered, as well as an option for ungrouping your icons when centered when you enable the enhanced taskbar option. This means that you can have complete control over your taskbar and ungrouping experience with Start11.
Start11 with a centered custom Start button, ungrouped applications, and a customized menu.
In addition to enabling new taskbar functionality, we also added a new option for renaming shortcuts in the Windows 10 and 11 style Start menus. With this update, you can now rename the tiles or icons to a name besides the application, or leave them blank if that's your preference.
We pay attention to what our users are saying about their experiences with our software. With each new version release for Start11, we focus numerous bug fixes on edge scenarios where the app doesn't operate as expected. We continue to appreciate everyone’s feedback, as it helps shape each update that we ship. It's also important to note that these new features are currently only supported on Windows 11 release builds and not Insider releases.
