Sorry to hear you are having issues. Please try, uninstall current version, reboot, reinstall the latest beta V1.22, reboot,retest it and report back. V1.22 should be available in your account product page : https://store.stardock.com/myaccount/products
Time ago I bought Start10 and Fences, but for some strange reason my Start10 license does not appear in my account product page, and also It does not give me the chance to upgrade / switch with a discount to Start11. Simply It's like if I never bought Start10, and I don't understand why. My Start10 license is totally functional with Start10, but in my account product page does not exists and I don't have any Start11 upgrade offer there. And when I try to put my e-mail to check for upgrade it says: "Sorry, you do not qualify for upgrade pricing at this time."
So... strange things. Then I decided to test Start11 before buying, by other means, as the website does not give me the chance to download latest Start11 version, it just redirects me to the purchase method page.
Thanks for answer.
I assume you are using 1.18 beta rather than 1.8 as there is no such version. Likewise the current release version is 1.2.
Yes, 1.18, sorry for the misstype. Now I switched to 1.19.
The fact it is not on your system points to something interacting with Start11 making these visible.
It is unlikely the menu itself is being opened by Start11, it is more likely something else is causing the window to become visible
What other programs are you running on your computer?
I don't have any single running 3rd party program that interacts with the visibility or behavior of windows. I closed all 3rd party apps except Fences and Start11 to ensure. (Needless to say, I don't have viruses or anything like that.)
This only happens with Start11 drop down menus. In no other program.
All this means the window is visible by default, I don't understand you say to me the opposite.
And I know perfectly well that what I am saying is as it is, because it is a problem that I had myself when I started to develop software (in .NET) as a hobbie, it bothered me a lot that in certain circumstances the graphical window of my user interface was seen for an instant in the coordinates 0x0 before being resized and repositioned. The fact that this happens is a simple programming problem.
Also is Start11 set to animate the start menu in or have you set this to disabled?
The animation was enabled, now I disabled the animation, and the problem still there. When the "Favorites" or "Recent files" drop down menu window is going to be created, I can see for around 100-300 ms that menu window being created and shown for an instant at the top-left corner of my display screen, then it disappears / resizes / relocates.
It's a minor problem anyway, it's just ugly. The most serious problem is the other one I described, and its hard to reproduce, I know, but I was hoping someone had already spotted this issue.
Thanks for your answer.
