but you can change color in this way too: http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-change-taskbar-color-in-windows-10/ Sorry, maybe I am missing something, but this does not seem to answer my question. Yes, as already mentioned in the first post, there's an option to "Show color on Start, taskbar and ac...

Hi, I see that it is possible to change the Windows 10 taskbar color via Classic Start Menu. How is that being done? Is that also possibly natively in Windows 10? I only see a "Show color on Start, taskbar and action center" option in Windows 10. But there's no option to only change the ta...

Classic shell 3.6.8 Still runs fine on the latest version of 8.1 Even if that's the case, it still doesn't have the features of the latest Classic Shell version. maybe IVO will be kind enough to release a 3.6.8B that only fixes the issue preventing it from running.. I would highly prefer if he woul...

why not install the older version

Because I mainly intend to use it on Windows 8.1.

And Classic Shell 3.6.8 is not meant to be used on Windows 8.1 as far as I know (and, even if it works, which I have not tested, it still could potentially stop working with future updates of Windows 8.1).

I don't see why this would be a reason to stop using it. The reason is: I no longer trust the software, especially not after this change hasn't even been mentioned in the changelog. As Ivo said, there were multiple different "Classic Shell" installers, almost all of them hardly different ...

Hello, I understand your frustration regarding those things. But please also understand my frustration. One of the things that I always liked about Classic Shell was, that it was open source software. I wouldn't have used it if it was not. Now it is closed source, which is why I already have uninsta...

Hello,

how does Classic Start Menu achieve disabling the taskbar transparency in Windows 8.1?

Is there any way to disable it without Classic Start Menu (i.e. with built-in tools like the registry editor or an open source third party tool or something like that)?

Why not just download it yourself? Convenience. And because of this: People don't know about the Winaero skin. And because it simply would make more sense to include it with Classic Start Menu (IMHO). You have to do it only once. If you would include it in Classic Start Menu, i wouldn't have to do ...

Can you make windows 8 and 8.1 have an option to have the classic/non-metro open with dialog in classic explorer? If you want to totally ignore metro, that doesn't really help, and it feels kind of out of place if you use a custom theme. This kind of thing should be possible, since you replaced the...
