I browsed your skins, and liked the "Claude Glass Skin", but could not find it for download. Can it be downloaded? From where?

It was a very old classic style skin that I created in 2010 based on the Smoked Glass skin. It was OK for 2010 but now it's kind of 'meh' :D I didn't maintain it after that. Here it is attached. Note that this skin is very old and doesn't have MANY new features that newer Classic Shell skins incorporate such as highlighting new programs, high DPI awareness, split buttons, Aero auto colorization, support for 'no icons in second column', localized tooltips, numerous bug fixes and the expanded skin format with Classic Shell 4.
So while Classic Shell has great backward compatibility with older skins, and this old skin should continue to work, many of the Start Menu features that I mentioned above won't work. Use it as it is. It is unsupported.


Feel free to modify it as you want.

That will prove quite useful.


I completely forgot this even existed...

Me too. :lol:
Button bitmap would have to be copied to a location on your computer,
to retain the alpha layer RGBA.
Saving it, just turns it into 24 bit RGB, in Win8.1

Hi Splitwirez.
I'm kind of jumping the gun.
I finished adding the splitbuttons to the skin, before you.
And here it is.
If you are in the process of completing yours, I will delete this one.

Apparently some people want a menu to match the taskbar in Win 10.
This one is close with default blur/auto color settings.
I don't know much about adding 100% to text. Have left it the same.
It's mostly untouched. Just cleaned up the corners of the buttons, and adjusted padding for picture in High Dots per inch.
The darkness, and color of menu same as the way GauravK made it.
How could GauravK see the future?
Thank you. :D

Alright, you win. No contest, I haven't even gotten around to starting >.<

I have way too many projects on the go...

I like revB :)

Just corners... I would prefer little more rounded.

I chose not to modify, basically just update to what GauravK said was missing.
Mostly done for "RetiredEngineer", and found it's good for matching taskbar in Win 10.

It's relatively easy to make round corners, with a bitmap editor.
Check out picture. Last year I made a popsicle summer skin with round corners.
I used free Pixelformer.
One just has to change the slices measurements for the bitmap, if making bigger curves.

Sorry Zoni. I put that picture to show how easy it is to do it.
I overwrote most of that personal menu into a darker army/navy one with bullets, and missiles. (Bad idea), which turned into something else again.
Just counting, I have about 8 menu skins at various levels of completion. They are all on the backburner.
Don't know if I will ever finish.
They are all so lame. :lol:
