This morning I started looking into using an alternative start menu. With a few options in mind, I began by installing the Startisback++ Trial for Windows 10. The sole reason didn't work for me was that it insisted I either use the default windows start button, one of their default alternatives, or specify a custom one, when all I wanted was for it to do nothing at all with the button so WindowBlinds can do it's thing.. As this was not an option I uninstall Startisback. Immediately, I saw that the skinned start button from my WindowBlinds theme (Loyalty is Sensuality) was being cut off at the top and bottom of the taskbar, where it previously extended above it.

So far I uninstalled Startisback, reinstalled WindowBlinds, loaded a restore point, Uninstalled windowblinds, restarted, reinstalled windowblinds, ran system file checker and finally am posting here. Oh, I also checked other themes. Issue persists.
I know it's not the most severe problem, but it's driving me nuts. Please, help.
EDIT: It seems I should have been clearer. Is there anyone willing to assist me in understanding the nature of this issue and working out an actual solution, rather than just telling me to "restart at checkpoint"? I'm willing to learn.
find an answer to, explanation for, or means of effectively dealing with (a problem or mystery).
