No, sorry. I tried for a long time but was unable to get the button to press when my menu is up and release when my menu closes (at lest not without some unwanted side effects).

Woot I've been waiting for smoke/transparency for the sub-menus, this is perfect! I have a couple of comments and a newb question.

Newb question: how do I get rid of the "Help and Support" from the start menu? You can see it in my pic below:



Possible 1.9 beta bugs/issues:
- When I replaced the bitmap 1 with an identical bitmap 2 (for Smoked Glass.skin), the bitmap got really light. Instead of being dark grey it turned nearly white. It's applying the bitmap, but for some reason, it's almost white and hard to see. If I just set the main menu to bitmap 2 (which is what I did above) it looks fine.
- As you can see from the pic above, the sub-menu drops below the taskbar--I wasn't sure if that was a normal function of whether that's a minor bug.

Either way, I love how it's working now, love the mod!

There are 2 ways to remove Help and Support:
One is to disable it from the group policy. Look for "gpedit.msc" in the start menu help for details. This won't work for Windows 7 Home.
The second way is to edit StartMenuItems.ini. Find the line that says ";MAIN_MENU.Items=...". Remove the semicolon from the start. Remove the "HelpItem" from the list of items.

When replacing the bitmap you probably messed up the alpha channel. You need an image editor like Photoshop that understands alpha channels.

The sub-menus are supposed to do that. They do for every version of the classic start menu since Windows 95. Even the Windows7 menu does this if you open a larger sub-folder like the Control Panel.

But you showed the solution in your previous post. Does it not work for you?
If your only problem is that you want the Computer menu to be expandable, just change ".Command" to ".Link". You can also remove the ".Name" and ".Icon" if you want the name and icon from your computer to be used.
