      • This the version of the start menu 8 button I created. The pictures are rather "Blocky" at first but when used it is very colorful.

          • When I right click on the sart menu icon the Customize User Interface link isn't there anybody know where it is. Ive created my own southern flag icons and cant seem to put them where they need to go. Ive copied to the start menu icon folder after ive made sure that they are the right size. Please email the answer to me if you have it . thanks

            • Hi jim46787,

              Welcome to IObit Forum!

              Sorry for the inconvenience. There is no Customize User Interface in the current new version of Start Menu 8.We'll update the guide in the first post. Please follow the steps below to make your own start buttons :

              1. The name of the start button should be named as follows:

              xxx_click.png
              xxx_hover.png
              xxx_normal.png

              Please note: "xxx" means you can rename it as whatever you want.

              2. The size of your start button is 54*40.

              3. You should make a suit of start button. That is to say you should make xxx_click.png, xxx_hover.png and xxx_normal.png at the same time. Then put them all under the folder StartButtonSkin.

              StartButtonSkin folder is under the installation directory of Start Menu 8.

              The installation directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Start Menu 8 or C:\Program Files\IObit\Start Menu 8

              4. Right click your current Start button >>choose Settings>>click Start Button on the left>>choose your newly added Start button>>click Apply.

              Cheers!

              • For Windows 10 users: the actual button size is 48 * 40, but if you create them as such, the image it will be placed a few pixels offset to the right. To resolve that, I've created a 48 * 40 size image and attached a fully transparent 6 * 40 box on the right. The resulting image is properly placed, at least if you do not use the small icons mode of the taskbar. The only drawback is that in the small icons mode of the taskbar, the resized image is again placed a few pixels offset to the right...
                If you want to recreate the semi-transparent Windows 10 behaviour, set the background color (in the 48 * 40 area) white, with the alpha channel set to 24 (on a scale of 255; on the background only!).

                    • v2.3.0.200 solved the button displacement/overlap with Windows 10, both in the standard as in the small icons mode of the taskbar.

                        • Hi all,

                          I just joined & have an issue with the newest version (2.4.0.1) of Start Menu 8 that I need some help with.

                          It seems the newest version doesn't recognize the StartMenuSkin folder. I updated from the previous version & now my custom icon buttons no longer show up to choose from. They worked fine with the previous version. And I confirmed that they're still there in the folder. I also rebooted after the update. My installation folder is: C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Start Menu 8.

                          My laptop runs Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit.

                          Any ideas?

                            Try the latest version 2.4.0.2 which can be downloaded from the topic Start Menu 8 v2.4 (2.4.0.1) is released! [November 19, 2015] (Updated to version : 2.4.0.2 - December 03, 2015) and see if it is the same.


                            Cheers.

                            • Hi enoskype,

                              Thanx for your reply & suggestion. I downloaded the newer version & ran/installed it as admin, but sorry to say I'm still having the same problem with the custom icons. Any other ideas to try?

                              • Hi drums4life,

                                The installation folder and NAME of the folder is changed, please uninstall Start Menu 8 completely and reinstall the latest version to it's default folder :

                                C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Classic Start

                                You can copy your old button images prior to uninstall and put them in the new folder.



                                Cheers
