I did kind of figure everything out for the skin. It works as it should with a minimal regular theme. Just don't know enough about making a theme that can work in Win 10, that does not screw up the look on web pages. Splitwirez might know if possible? :) Just use WSB to port this to Windows 10: htt...

The menu is intentionally behind the taskbar, because otherwise the shadow will look weird. I know this is kinda trivial, but it'd be nice to have an option to change that to facilitate the other setting I mentioned. Think of the theming possibilities...

You seem to be using a custom theme that may be adding an extra edge to the taskbar. It may be tricking the start menu into positioning in the wrong spot.
