Hello blackcrack,

How many suggestions....
Since you are a long-time forum user, you know for sure I have to choose what to implement according to its priority and the priority scale is only partially in my hands.
For example a bug resolution is always my highest priority.
A feature frequently requested by the users is in high priority.
Then the scale proceeds with my personal evaluations and preferences.

Graphics.
The SyMenu graphical appearance is not among my preferred features so don't expect any implementation in short.
You already have the option to show/hide the border shadow, even if I've just discover a little bug on it.
Round edges, image background, truetype fonts, are really demanding options to implement and they take a time that I prefer to dedicate to other features. The extended menu I've just released with 6.04 is a great step forward in productivity so please forgive me if your productivity tool is not so beautiful smile (joking!)

Changing the right mouse click behavior is a good idea, but how should it work exactly? We could imagine something really useful and above all something that could be consistent with the application.
If you want an example of a great exposed feature proposal, have a look here https://www.ugmfree.it/Forum/messages.aspx?TopicID=631&lastpage=1#post2123
Edw suggests a complete and consistent implementation and after 40 days I've already implemented one of his ideas. He "sold" me his ideas in a very smart way... smile
BTW if you don't want to see the Configuration, Get new Apps, My Computer items inside the main menu you can move them whenever you want through the Options-Structure form. They can become even a dropdown of the (otherwise useless) SyMenu title item.

Advanced Exit feature.
I already checked the feasibility of it in the past and it could be done. As always it's the time for this activity I lack.
Anyway my idea was not to eject the USB automatically because you can use a third party software to do that, and even better if linked with the autoexec on close feature. Well it's an option already available today.
The part where SyMenu closes all the programs activated from it is instead the good part of the idea and in fact was exactly the side I explored in the past.
I can't forecast when this feature will be available anyway.

GUI for SyMenu.
Why don't you explain better this idea? I like it but I need some more clarifications.

as shortest explain a abandoned project from Li Chao, she's never programming on this Project and Google Code it is only stored,
you can and maybe you be in able to assimilation the whole ideas from hear, because there is no copyleft or something and this traylauncher
works really efficient, if you add the control-win key as executable window where search into the added menu-entrys do we have a Executable window with cmd-line, but all from the added menuentrys and the other things also.. so, what's wrong to overtrage ideas from an abadoned project, should they whole ideas disappear in the sunken?

https://code.google.com/archive/p/traylauncher/

you can directly export this code to your Github Repository to be in able for prozess/to handle it directly
if you select the source>source

the next idea, can you maybe add a plugin in you menu who make something like rocketdock
out from the added programs in the menu ?
Also some idea, to have maybe a skin-able menu like mac,
but as plugin who uses the programs from the menu (open an selectorwindow of the whole menu with category's from the "folders" wink )
And, maybe usable the Skins from Rocketdock https://rocketdock.com/addons/skins/popular and maybe also the addons.. but a own developed Dock, so SyDock as add on to the SyMenu but it exist Skins and addons already wink

best regards
Blacky
