Personally I would define a hacker as: Anyone who changes or modifies anything through un-conventional means, often to gain an un-anticipated result Webster however defines a hacker as : a person who secretly gets access to a computer system in order to get information, cause damage, etc. : a perso...

Get your terminology right. "hacker" is a generic term for people that modify software typically without access to the source code. Black Hat Hackers = Bad Guys White Hat Hackers = Good Guys Yeah, I know exactly what a hacker is. And a hacker is "good" because he modifies things...

Windows 8.x UI was a massive balls up by MS and this hasn't really been addressed in 10 other than a big mad fudge! The efforts by you guys to put back in place the usable interface that MS discarded so foolishly is hugely appreciated! Many thanks for now making the decision to update OS not seem l...

The control panel menu is not supposed to be reorderable. What version of Windows do you have and what version of Classic Shell? Hiding is not possible, because then how would you unhide it if you happen to need it? Your best bet is to create a folder, put the shortcuts you need there, and replace ...

Hi, when sorting items in the path Start, Control Panel, click to expand, list, I have two problems, one "bug" and one request. 1. You can drag and drop any item there to sort the list as you want, but after restarting, some items go to the last position. http://fotos.subefotos.com/226f67b...

Literally, as it already has been stated, Classic Shell is the reason I'm using Windows 8.1. No Classic Shell, no Windows 8.1, it's that simple to me. It's so fantastic and so customizable I can't really find words to express the happiness. And of course, all my relatives would be using Windows 7 if...

Have got no idea why whatever you said is happening. The only difference between the two images is that the area of the cross is transparent in the 2nd one.



By original I meant Windows 8.1 white official logo compared to your fixed last version.

Thanks again, but as I said, it doesn't matter how big you do your image, I'm killing almost ALL pixels of it. Now, I'm confused. I've zoomed in your photo and it seems that it has just 1 tone per each color, so semi-tones shouldn't appear, it supposed to be perfect now. But look: http://fotos.subef...

If you mix 2 pixels with the same color then no matter the ratio in which you mix them you will get the same color. But if you mix 2 different colors you will get new colors. Same for the alpha channel. If you mix one transparent and one opaque pixel you will get a semi-transparent pixel. Imagine a...

If an image is downscaled then the new pixels will contain a mix of multiple original pixels. That's right. If they have different color then you will get new colors. What? How can they have different colors than the original icon? The same applies to the alpha channel. Even if the original image i...

Like I said and Ivo reiterated, you are not using 100% DPI plus not the default size of the button. There WILL be interpolation artefacts taking into account the adjustments necessary for the increased DPI as well as different size of the button (compared to the image dimensions). Instead, if you r...

well, it will always do that when you zoom in.. no matter how big you make it, since you are essentially adding information which isnt there.. unless you make a vector graphic, which doesnt have that limitation.. a bit silly for a start menu orb though No, no, no, no, first of all, I did that zoom ...

Thanks! I take the first one, though there's no almost no difference, only if you look at the icon the time you're changing it. Nevertheless, I'm not agree with you.

Since you use a 125% DPI, this button is getting scaled which is why I think you are seeing scaling/size issues. I don't know if the image scaling algorithm that Classic Shell uses to scale the button ( WIC fant ) is better than bicubic, or whether it's worse. The original Windows 8.1 logo that you...

It is complicated because the classic style menu is more powerful than Windows XP's menu ever was. It allows subitems for main items and completely customizing the command/link, label, tip, icon, sort order and a couple more options. Wouldn't you rather have more customization at the expense of a l...

Hi, where are the icons of Pictures, Music and Videos folders from W8.1?

When I wanna change an icon, it selects system32/shell32.dll, which doesn't contain the icons I want.
