Meanwhile, I use the start menu constantly because I don't like having icons all over my screen @Johan ... nor do I open programs via the terminal. So different strokes for different folks. Which is precisely why the modularity of Linux is so beautiful...

We do have two German speaking Trusted Users on our team @LordKaan, if that is more comfortable for you. You'll need to wait for them to respond though. Otherwise, hope you are enjoying your chance to revive your high school English. I have ventured back into my high school French on our Facebook presence. I am only able to do so because my other half is 100% fluent , often mistaken for a native whenever he's in France. Same for his Russian, 100% fluent, though they think he's Estonian.

Peppermint 11 will not revert to the PM 6 style menu. What you are doing to retain that elder menu may well continue to work. Others from #teampeppermintOS will have to advise later, as I am not personally versed in package/code intricacies. Ahh! I see @rayzer has stepped up!

@rayzer: But then you can't use the superkey to open the menu. There is an option to enable it though if I remember correctly :-\

As i got -now without translation- there are no plans, to have (even with/by instaling by user) a single/simple one row menu

Sad to hear it,
cause i am fine -even when i have to implent by my self- with the single row menu...

About german speaking usres.

I am not that often here; so there is no need for it; but thank you

The things from above, was just a thought/wish/input from user-side

I hope  peppermint 11 is going to have flatpak support built into to software center. right now its kind of hard to telll which package is a deb or snap or flatpak.  i use flatpak  version of vscode because i am a beginer developer  and i dont trust micrososft.  their developement products world class. But their attitude is horrid and i cant stand their sneaky ways. so flatpak is great for such applications being containerized and separate from the system.

im using brave as my default browser now, its chromium based but i have no snapd, flatpak or chromium installed. nice and stable and doesnt use much memory, also its inbuilt adblocker is quite decent.

Be cautious of Brave. There's a business model attached to it: https://davidgerard.co.uk/blockchain/2020/06/06/the-brave-web-browser-is-hijacking-links-and-inserting-affiliate-codes/
