Windows 7: bbLean - shell replacement for windows.

bbLean - Shell Replacement for Windows.

Hey everyone! So, I recently installed bbLean ( bblean ). I really love the looks of it and I want to keep it. But in order to keep it, I really want it to be configured the way I want it.

So if there's any experienced bbLean user here who can help me out, that would be great.

OK, so the question is; How do I get rid of the Start menu icon? It keeps flashing when I minimize and maximize windows.

And how do I get access to the applications that are located in the system tray? It seems to exclude some of the applications that are started and placed in the tray.

Thanks, hope to hear from you. :)

P.S. I know some people may think that this post should be posted in a bblean-forum, and I understand that. But I'm pretty sure these "bugs" are Windows 7 related. And if there's a way to like inactivate the Start Icon, that would be great. :)

OK, so I fixed the Start Menu icon. All I had to do was to exit explorer and then start bbLean. The system tray problem is still of interest.

did you set your shell to bblean? I have done so and the "tray" is on the right side of the bar that appears at the top of your screen, unless you changed the location of it. I forget the terminology. I love the multiple desktops and the bbkeys plugin.

if you have any problems in particular feel free to ask, I'm using bblean as my primary shell and love it.

Why would anyone put BBlean on? It looks so unprofessional! Are there any smooth, good-looking skins for it?

Registry: differences between Shell Folders and User Shell Folders?
Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.
