I see. I never really noticed that the other options disabled it for everything since I just stuck with CS. Good to know.

I personally really like how KDE does it desktop sorting thing, (I think KDE 4 was the original "fence".) Hell, KDE is awesome all around. I have yet to find anything remotely as good as Klipper on Windows for one thing.

It is indeed enough, Classic Shell is in itself, more then enough. I just figured I'd ask since there is no way within CS to only enable the top left and top edge and nothing else. I did know about the windows options for the top corners. I did not know about the registry tweak to disable charms hin...

Some times its nice to have Composting turned off for old games or emus, specially for gaining back a frame of display latency in some cases. There still exists a way to disable Aero a.k.a.

Would it be possible to consider individual settings for each corner and the top edge as separate check boxes in the "Windows 8(.1) Settings" tab? I like using the top left corner and the top edge but not the charms bar or the bottom left corner. If not, there is always Skip Metro suite fr...

Touché. I'm hoping that CS will have an option to just not draw anything over the original icon, leaving it intact, though I have no idea how easy or hard that would be.

I just discovered that the white, normal state is slightly different. The anti aliasing on the real one has a slightly darker outline.

Yep, It's different on 7, I actually have to install updates for it to show up, it works properly. I'll try 8.0, now, (VMware is invaluable for testing things.)

Edit: It's only 8.1, probably worth waiting 'till the RTM comes out in less then a month.

Steps to create your own colours: 1. Open the colour template in a graphics editor that supports transparent png files. (Neopaint[shareware] is my favorite, Paint.net[free] works too.) 2. Flood fill the blue portion to whatever colour you want. 3. Use paste from file and select the alpha template. I...

Why are you double-clicking on the item in the first place? It is standard behavior everywhere in Windows that double-click opens stuff. I'm generally don't double click on that but on the real Windows XP/Vista/7 start button, you can't open an item that is set to show up as a menu unless you right...

1. You answered your question yourself. It is because Windows 8.1 handles closing of Metro apps differently than Windows 8. If you try to open them again from the Start screen, don't you see the same behavior? Nope, if I close them from the screen, they still appear as dormant processes in Process ...

This seems to be one of the only things left that Classic Shell can't replicate from the real start menu: On Windows Vista and 7, when you go to all programs or search for something, it gets shown in the left pane instead of a popout menu. Of course, having this be optional would be the best for peo...
