I just installed your new version of classic shell and during install it locked up on closing explorer for awhile (from how it looked because of the task bar with window blinds) finally completed and after the reboot it forced, if Classic shell is running the Windowblinds skin will not draw the complete taskbar. Was fine as far as I know with version 4.3.0 If you need any more info ...

Windows10 1702 x64 (all updated)
WindowBlinds_10.62
ClassicShellSetup_4_3_1

Have you tried to uncheck 'customize taskbar' in classic shell to see if that resolves the issue? or are you having problems getting to that point?
also if-necessary try disabling window blinds (even if its just temporary to uncheck the above setting sucessfully)

Hello. Yes i made sure that option was off it does not matter on or off it still stops the task bar from skinning. It only skinned where an open program tab was, and left the rest of the bar bare. After locking up pretty hard I reverted to 4.3.0 for now. I have some time today to trash my task bar so i will drop a log here this afternoon. Hey thanks for your work and software btw.

I noticed a taskbar skinning incompatibility with StartIsBack++ and Classic Shell too. If StartIsBack++ is used to only customize the taskbar, and Classic Shell is used as the Start menu, the taskbar skinning is completely messed up even if Customize taskbar is off in Classic Start Menu Settings.

OK 4.3.1 locked up my PC in trying to close windows so it could update. I unloaded Windowblinds and it installed second time but still had trouble with closing and restarting explorer shell. THEN as long as Classic Shell is running window blinds will not skin the task bar. That is with or without the start button setting on/off

Makes it look like that. Going back to the working one for now. Any ideas will be greeted warmly. Thanks
