Hi, We have tested it on many different versions of Windows. What is your version of Windows? You can find out your Windows version by opening the Run dialog box with Win+R and using the Winver? command.
Well, I’ve tried this app out and it shows backups. But when I need to restore prior backup nothing happens.
I know I should have it, but I didnt think of searching for this tool, but again, you SORDUM put out great tool that I will not forget about!
Could you add either a tab or folder format, such that when an icon is clicked it opens a tab or folder showing several icons which can be chosen to relate to each other.
I often find that I have several programs that I would like to group together and the coventional pinboard gets cluttered. I have several browsers, several pdf tools, also photo and editing tools which would sit best in groups but with each group behind one icon, to make finding and selection tidy. More like a GUI interface rather than using windows listing feature which is alphabetic.
its not working with folders in win11 2h22
ok for windows 11 2022 start menu with folders? thank you
Hmm. This is mostly for W10 it seems. I guess not much can be done with the horrible START MENU in W11. Maybe after the next major release/update of W11?
Thanks for the feedback and your comment Randy.
Indeed! I posted that before I grabbed the Sept 22nd update. I can confirm it’s working well!
Thanks again for the ongoing updates – this app saves me a TON of time whenever I get a new machine ready!
