Review: Stardock Start11
Posted 10th April 2022
Start11 enchances the Win10 and Win11 taskbar. It brings features from each to the other. For example, Win10 can now have a centred taskbar and Win11 can position the taskbar away from the foot of the screen.
I find the Win10 bar a bit ugly so just hid it. With a custom start button and a background texture, I have it back on screen all the time now. Getting it just right involves Start11's setting plus the existing Windows control panel. I feel it improves my workflow.
I have not run it on Win11 so can't comment on that. A just £/$ 5.99 it is very reasonable little customisation. 30 day free trial is fairly generous if you want to try it out. Good little app.
Long Term View
Been using this a while now and I don't think I can live without it! I paid for it very quickly and prefer having the Start menu at the top of the screen. Stardock continue to push out good updates for it. It's a great price and worth it on Win10 and Win11.
