Power8 has no expiration date. Below you're talking about Start8 - maybe it was its expiration? If you experience the message again - it'd be good if you post here a screenshot and description on where and how did you download Power8. The only source I control is power8 - Yet another Start menu replacer for Windows 8 - Google Project HostingI got a message that Power 8 had expired - and it no longer worked.
Power8 is updated more or less regularly. Right-click the main button and choose auto-update to ensure you have the latest version.Now with Windows 8 RTM being released, I'm sure he's working to get the final version of Power8 ready.
Can you please provide 2 screenshots: 1) how it works for other software; 2) mock-up of howyou expect this work for Power8?Maybe you can pass on a minor suggestion to them? On my laptop running Win-8, if I "hover" my cursor over most of the icons at the lower left part of the screen, a small box opens up saying what they are. It would be nice if Start8 could do the same. Even if I left-click on it. The only way to find out what it is, is to right-click on the icon.
Nope, we have no horizontal programs bar Screenshots of Power8 are available at power8 - Yet another Start menu replacer for Windows 8 - Google Project HostingIf I'm right about all this, then was it Power8 that gave the list of programs in a horizontal "bar", where you scrolled horizontally to find what you want? If so, I didn't like that.
Soon you will be able to. This is planned for 1.1, I hope during October.Wow - finished the install, and there is a tiny rectangular box at the bottom left, that is apparently my new Start menu. First impression - why is it so small? Maybe I can make it larger later on?
The list of Programs is made up based on what you have launched already. This is essentially how Windows XP - Windows 7 works.Even stranger - I expected to see a list of my programs.... all that's there is Firefox and IE.
When the PC restarted, Power8 was gone. I guess I need to change the settings, so it starts automatically?
Nope, just need to select "auto start". Suggestion - make this the default.
Hmm, "Block Metro Features" .....sounds promising.
