            Hi Cicely & Enoskype

            Thanks, just little feedback, Start Menu 8 version 2 works great, just wish that in the settings there is Check For Update and About menu as well, so we can always sure that we're running the latest version, and know exactly which version we are running now

            Merry Christmas to great Iobit Teams.

              Hi anugra01,

              You can right click Start button to access "Check for updates" to check whether there is a new version available or not, and "About" to check which version you use now.

              Merry Christmas and Happy 2015!

                Am I missing something or is there no way to turn the automatic updates off within the applications settings? There is a liveupdate service running which I found and turned off using Windows Services but I can't see any option within the app itself. I'm sorry, as much as I like StartMenu8 I think it's a big no-no for an app to have to "built in" option to control updates.

                  Hi Skrybe,

                  Thanks for your feedback.

                  Currently there is no settings for auto update. We'll consider your suggestions carefully in the future to continually improve our program and service.

                  Please stay tuned on Start Menu 8.

                  Happy 2015!

                    I have a couple more questions about the new version - What is the "Powerful Uninstall" that appears on the right click menu for items on the start menu? I'm not about to click it (even if I wanted to uninstall something) because it's a completely unknown quantity.

                    Also, what is the service "StartMenu8 InstallServices" that appears in the task manager? Does this actually need to be running? What is it used to install?

                      Hi Skrybe,

                      “StartMenu8 InstallServices” is the service for Start button. So it needs to be running.

                        So why are there four startmenu8 services/apps in task manager? Seems a little excessive. :(

                          Hi Skrybe,

                          Please take a screenshot about the four startmenu8 services/apps in task manager and send the screenshot to us for further checking.

                          Here is how to take the screen shot: http://take-a-screenshot.org/

                          Thanks for your time.

                            One thing I've noticed is that the account name is no longer displayed under the picture. I recommend this program for novice users and this has the potential to be really confusing for users with multiple accounts on a single PC. Is there any way to add this back? If not, could this be brought back in a future version?
