    Hi

    I just figured that it had to do with the taskbar settings because I wasn't seeing anything like that on my install.

    Glad to see you got it figured it out.

    I have used Classic Shell for years myself, even in Windows 7, but I decided that I wasn't going to do it in the Technical Preview.

    I figured that I owed it to them to use is the way it's designed and evaluate it.

    My only cop out is the use of Rocketdoc, (I can't live without it) to organize the links to my most used software.

    Other wise I don't intend to go back to Windows 8, I'm going to use it the way it is until I move to the real thing, and I'm going to do the customization within the confines of the operating system.

    I've already changed it a lot, my desktop and Start Menu look pretty much exactly like the one I had in Windows 7.

    So far I'm really happy with it.

    Ahh Heck, figured it out. It`s because I replaced the start button using Classic Shell.
    Yea, using Classic Shell here as well. Can't use the existing start menu... hope they fix it soon.

    Hi

    Try Rocketdock, I really don't need any start menu for 90% of what I do.
    It's really just a very compact start menu, and you can attach pretty much anything to it.

    Programs, files, Folders etc.

    Download RocketDock - RocketDock.com

    I've used it for years.

    I have the taskbar from XP, complete with "Quick Launch", pretty much all I need.

    Meh, it doesn't work any better than the script someone else posted a couple weeks ago.

    Don't forget folks, you still have the Quick Launch Area for holding shortcuts to apps and files. The file shortcuts in QLA have always been my main interest. It's nice to add .doc or .txt file shortcut for quick access. I don't like pinning the entire app so QLA eliminates that necessity. :)
