I go into Stardock Start11 Config and for the Taskbar I'm told:
"You already have something else managing your taskbar buttons so this cannot be enabled until that is disabled"
I rebooted my laptop today; the TaskBar was blank and Start11 had the same message. I'm on v1.25.
I don't have "ExplorerPatcher" installed. I am on the beta track of Win 11 (22H2, build 22622.575) so i wonder if that has anything to do with it. Does PowerToys ever interfere with Start11?
I did Malwarebytes and Defender scans just in case and neither found anything.
What fixed it for me was restarting the Explorer.exe process via TaskManager. Strange.
