Hello,

I'm trying some xp / vista skins, when there is text for the shut down button some weird characters are added (this happens in all skins I tested so far).
Anyone an idea where those come from and how I fix this?

OS is Win10 Creators Update

Kind regards,
Clemens

EDIT it also happens now at the default skins, very strange, normally (on my other pcs also if I remember correctly) there is the german "herunterfahren", but something has overwritten this...
EDIT2 changing language has no effect on that button

This reminds of something before.

Looks like modified file from OneSerendipity StartMenuL10N.ini
got into the mix at some point.

Yeah editing C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\StartMenuL10N.iniStartMenuL10N.ini or uninstalling and reinstalling Classic Shell should fix your issue.

Thank you, editing that file did the job

Other question: what is the meaning of the "&" in that file?
Most of the time it's at the beginning but in the linked thread it isn't.
Thanks!

And yeah indeed I tried a vista skin before with some weird hidden font.

The character after '&' will be underlined in the menu and used as the keyboard accelerator shortcut.
