I have found a few things in the w11 start menu:
When I set hide icon text, the default windows icons are set to small.
When i have hide icon text off, and have combined several shortcuts into a folder, setting static images after like 3 or 4 icons start11 restarts for every icon that is changed after that.
My windows scale is set to 200%.
The location in c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ is not updating for me.
if i delete a shortcut, it says it is missing, even after 10 minutes and a reboot.
creating folders and dragging icons does not refresh the folder preview of icons. it just shows the very first icon instead of the first few.
Also i see taskbar transparency is disabled now for windows 11 dev. It was working fine before, can you please enable it again ?
hope this helps.
