    It should run in both PE and RE, as far as I'm aware.
    Yup AFAIK as well (nothing in the code that differentiates between the two)
    @zbook a lot of the PE stuff was developed at GitHub so just went with what I was asked for there (my knowledge of PE/RE stuff is dangerous) - but @Kyhi is the expert on that score.

    ShowKeyPlus doesn't show properly on Windows 11 (at least in a VM). I will have to check later on actual 11.

    It also reports the wrong build version. My VM was originally the leaked build and I've just converted it to latest released via UUDump.

    I've checked, it's the same on a physical W11 machine. On further investigation it is only the .exe version that's a bit too transparent to read easily. The Store app version has no transparency.

    Further to that, it is only transparent when it has focus, switch focus away (eg: click on the Taskbar) and it looses transparency and becomes readable.

    Edit: The above test was with an older version, 1.1.14.1. The current version 1.1.16.0 is acceptably less transparent.

    Thanks for the effort @Bree. I should have mentioned that mine was from the store.

    I was aware of that initially at 11F by @Winuser - I have not been able to replicate it - I suspect it's due to the bug that's causing a lag in settings particularly Personalise.

    Yep, I toned down the transparency in 1.1.16.0

    This is the new version- should I tone it down more?

    Having a another look at this - it does not seem to be a transparency issue - see gross transparency in this post ShowKeyPlus

    The text is not subject to transparency - it only affects the background - we need to look elsewhere for the problem...

    The whole thing might change during the course of 11 testing.

    I note the Personalise lag in Colour settings has been fixed in Win 11's latest update - @swarfega are you still getting this issue with the update?

    I also note acrylic has only been extended to the context menu with the latest CU, but I have persisted with it, albeit with much more subtlety
