I am unsure if this issue existed before, but I am using the Shortcuts list in Start11 to create a Quick Launch "Display as menu" item (I still don't understand why Quick Launch had to be removed from Windows!). I can relearn where to go for my Quick Launch menu BUT when I click it (just to view the menu structure - I don't actually choose anything) my Taskbar and any Explorers that are open are restarted. This isn't workable as I lose whatever folder I had open in Explorer.
Why is explorer restarting each time? This doesn't seem like what you would want to have happen.
I would love to stop using the other method for getting Quick Launch back (ExplorerPatcher) since it is limiting a few other things that I use, but right now I can't have my explorer disappear each time I touch my Quick Launch area. I really, really hope you can fix this and it wasn't done this way on purpose.
Are you using Dragon naturally speaking or similar?
I do not use Dragon or anything like that. -- sorry, I was trying to reply to your question, but it puts it down at the bottom of the list.
To explain more, I added my Quick Launch area and Display as Menu as shown below:
This added a little folder icon directly above the Power icon in the Start menu. When I click on that folder icon and view that menu (I can choose something or just do nothing at all), when I click away or the item I chose is launched my Taskbar disappears along with any Explorer windows I had open. After explorer.exe restarts, then the Taskbar returns, but I have to launch an Explorer again.
