This is just for people not using a Start Menu.

Just in case you are porting a 7 msstyles to 8.1 and even though you fixed everything in Windows 8 (For Testing Purposes Only) > Jump Lists to look like it should and your JumpList is still not looking right here's a fix:

1) Go to Unknown > StartPanelComposited::StartPanelPriv and remove all the properties except for COMPOSITED:BOOL with a true value

2) Search Classes, parts and states for StartPanelPriv and remove every property except BGTYPE:ENUM with a value of NONE and DEFAULTPANESIZE:RECT of (0, 0, 406, 440)

Your JumpList will now look like it should.

From few days i try to port a theme from Windows 7 to use it in Windows 8.1.1. I try to fix the jump lists using this tutorial but with no luck. There is a few properties in StartPanelComposited::StartPanelPriv: Enum, Bool, Margins, Images, and INHERITED PROPERTIES. I remove Enum, Margins and Images, but nothing under INHERITED PROPERTIES cannot be removed. When I press remove button with marked single property or multiple, nothing happens... one flickr and the property/s is/are still there. Am I missing something? After that if try to change some of the values of this properties WSB lose its window frame and freeze!

Sorry for my bad english.

Did you try using this tutorial?

This almost always works when porting a 7 msstyle to 8.

The above solution is only for when you have done the rest and the JumpList is still not right. I only had to do it once.

Adding/removing inherited properties doesn't currently work.

Hmmm... I see this tutorial before, but I can perform it because there is no available "Start Menu" after import the style from windows 7 to 8. Maybe I miss something?

I want to ask is there any easy way after import a style from 7 to 8 to make the start menu of the original style usable with Startisback+?

If there isn't any Start Menu section then use this tutorial:
