Winaero Giveaway: free StartIsBack licenses for our readers!

Update: The giveaway is now over. See who won the free license.

Let me introduce our first exciting giveaway! Today, our giveaway product is one of the leading commercial Start Menu implementations for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 - StartIsBack.

In this post, we will look at key benefits of the StartIsBack+ application, and 4 random lucky winners from everyone who participates, will receive a StartIsBack license for free. One StartIsBack license covers 2 PCs. The license is applicable to both StartIsBack for Windows 8 as well as StartIsBack+ for Windows 8.1.



StartIsBack+StartIsBack+ allows you to change the Start menu and Start button look. It supports transparent and opaque menu styles as well as third-party downloadable buttons.

Menu's Look & FeelThe "Switching" section of the app's configuration has some interesting features:

SwitchingThe unique 'Everything at once' feature invoked by holding down the Windows key improves the usability of the Modern UI. The app also gives you individual control over hot corners of the screen.

In the Advanced options, there are some more unique features - you can choose to keep only Apps on the Start screen and also on the Apps screen! Another unique feature here is that you can enable the Taskbar to be shown on the Start screen!

AdvancedThe taskbar even matches your Start screen color:

Start Screen with TaskbarIn conclusion, I can say that StartIsBack works like a charm. It can even search network locations included in your Libraries like the Windows 7 Start menu. It is stable, responsive and looks great. From existing commercial products, StartIsBack looks most attractive for the end user.

The regular license for 2 PCs costs $3, but you can get it for free!

    As a broke Web Developer having the start menu back really helps when looking for a program! Windows 8 start search is a little too slow for my taste. Love all the hard work you up into your products! @WinAero! :D Thanks!

    I hope to win one licence, becouse I don’t like the the default Start menu button in Windows 10 and I need this program to replace this button with another one.
