Noted it down, Thanks.
"taskbar layout" support would be really nice.
The backup will be placed in the MenuLayouts folder (next to BackupSML)
Great app!! Btw, could you tell me where the backup folder is?
how to make my custom layout system wide so creating a new user will also use my layout?
1 – Take a backup with BackupSML.The backup will be placed in the MenuLayouts folder (next to BackupSML)
2 – Copy the BackupSML folder to the new computer. Make sure it has MenuLayouts next to it.
3 – Run BackupSML on the new computer and restore the backup
Note: Backups restored on different systems may not work properly
I do have a new computer, also having Backup SML installed. Where can I find the backup file on my old computer to transfer it to my new one?
Thank you for your hard work.
It works all windows 11 and 10 versions except special ones (Didn’t tested on LTSC or LTSB) , We find it unnecessary to do special work for such versions.
Hi , doesn’t work in Windows 10 LTSC version 1607, will you fix it
(Merhaba,Windows 10 sürüm 1607 de çalışmıyor bunun ilgili bir çalışmanız olacak mı?)
I was hoping you would add "taskbar layout" support too. can you please consider adding it?
@ Sordum Team Regardless of layout, just links. Is it possible?
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
For adding Windows 11 support!
@huangsijun17 : Doesn’t seems possible
Is it possible to translate the start menu from Windows 10 to Windows 11?
