    MRE FAQ and the following if necessary; if your problem is not yet solved, use the support formular.
    • StartMenu doesn't start!
      This is still a bug of V1.20. Activate the option "ShowWindows". If you work on a screen that has always one open window, it should work.

    Proposals for the next version:

    1. Drag'n Drop for shortcuts
