The only thing that drives me crazy is that I can't easily see how optimized are Rainmeter skins in terms of performance on this beast, it's all below 1% now. I guess I own balala some apologies for making a big fuss about optimizing one's skins irrespective of how good is the hardware they run on, because, although I undoubtedly have the same opinion about it, I didn't realize that you simply can't see if you wrote a badly optimized skin or not in such a case. :confused:
Congrats on the new beast! I guess I will be stuck with the scrawny cat for a little longer :rofl:

This question is for the devs, will there be an announcement made about Rainmeter on Windows 11 or in the future?
Beaside adding W11 SysInfo support, making RM not crash on Insider builds (revisions 3540 and 3412 respectively) and how the WMIC command is getting it's last moments alive to then be dragged into the woods at midnight to be buried, will you guys create something to detail anything like that? (and also talk about stuff like killing off W7 , changing the .NET build, maybe respect windows theming scheme or something idk)
Non-issue really, just curious :v

Well, I still have my old laptop (a bit difficult to sell such an old system at any price), so it's not like I got rid of it entirely. ;-) If it wasn't for the literal breaking apart of it (some screws, the keyboard, the headset port, the CPU getting hot), I would still be on it, getting the new one was simply out of necessity. :confused:

I support this as well. Normally, this should be the thread to talk about these issues, but of course, it's down to the progress of Win 11 as well, since some things may fail on Insider builds and could work just fine on the "final" version. And since we're at it, it seems there's already a release version of it, according to PC Gamer.

Hello.

Taking advantage of the topic.

Does anyone know if there is a skin to transform the start equal to windows 10?
New builds 22000 or more, no longer allow via regedit.
I thought someone knows a skin for this

A Rainmeter skin can't transform the Windows start menu, the most it can do is to replicate / adjust it in the Rainmeter context, i.e. as a (separate) skin. In other words, it may look like the start menu you like, but it won't be the start menu. There are some Rainmeter skins that try to do that with varying degrees of success, but since I'm not really into looking for that, I'll let others cover that part.

As for getting back the actual Windows 10 start menu in Windows 11, it seems this claims it's possible by using Stardock's Start11 application. It's not a free application though.
