Metro Adaptive Skin

The original Metro skin didn't fit my needs so i made one.


Features :
- Look somehow similar to Windows 8 Start Screen
- Match Windows color setting
- Transparent

It works, which is great, but I think all the icons are spread out way too far. The menu goes off screen and I can't see the user picture

Thanks for the feedback. :)

What resolution do you have on your computer ?
I'l try to make an option to use less space.

Not a fan of the Metro look but that actually looks sort of usable.

I will echo Noke's feedback about the items being really spaced out. I have high-resolution monitors but quite often have tons of pinned apps and tons of recent apps.

The larger the menu is the more of the desktop your brain forgets about and the more you have to remember about "what" you were doing when you went to the start menu. This is what makes The Windows Metro Tile so bad. if you're on the desktop and working and go to the start menu the whole screen changes and your brain sort of de-caches/forgets what it was working on and it has to work harder to remember

other than that looks pretty nice.

Updated 2013 skin, by AlucardDH.
Merci Damien.

Now has split buttons, and what not, for CSM v4.2.5

Don't recall this old skin. Very busy looking. :shock:
This has got to be the biggest menu, I've ever seen, and that's without increasing High Dots per Inch.
Floor to ceiling, like Win 8 start screen. If you love the start screen, this one's for you.

If not, there is option to reduce menu size, as in the small icons screenshot.

As with any picture menu, the height to width ratio will change,
depending on how many entries, (e.g. frequent/recent programs) in menu.
