Also if you disable Runtimebroker and shellexperiencehost under the svchost.exe, modern apps don't work any more when you try to launch them you get a error dialog box and I thought that's amazing, no more modern apps lol.

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

I've just tried the latest Classic Theme patcher. It doesn't work with Yahoo Messenger, etc (it causes its window border to constantly flicker). Also, the toolbar still isn't made to be in the classic style. Okay, now tell us something we don't know :lol: (Sorry. But in all seriousness, the last 9 ...

Styler Toolbar works on Internet Explorer on Windows 8, and likely 10 as well. Anyone have any ideas in terms of file explorer?

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

Whats sad is that you cannot run the old versions of Windows 10 beta without changing your date as they have a certificate in each build and know when they have expired. Some anti-piracy tools can fix that... ._. P.S. when I run the Vista explorer I get the old balloons in the system tray compared ...

windows.nt.win32, can I get a screenshot of that?

Annix, the taskbar buttons still won't be skinned. Also, not sure if you noticed, but Classic AE, in spite of being amazingly accurate, just doesn't have that same feel as the real Classic Theme :/

Early Classic Shell supported Vista. Yeah. That ended with Classic Shell 4.x, correct?

With the Vista Explorer you cannot add a quick launch, right clicking on the bar does nothing when I try it on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
