Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

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.

P.S. I did this in Process Hacker.

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

Even without a start menu and desktop, Windows 10 sure looks good with the classic theme.

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. P.S. when I run the Vista explorer I get the old balloons in the system tray compared to Windows 10's big boxes that tell you thin...

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

I got vistart running on my computer, but when I click on the button nothing happens when I run the vista explorer on Windows 10. Also the button keeps going on weird places on the start menu. Startmenu X seems to work, I tested it, but you need to start the start menu from the system tray or from a...

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

I dont want to go off topic, but I can run the Firewall settings application from Windows Vista on Windows 8.1 and 10, though it appears to be broken clicking on the links in the program. Also when I launch the Command prompt from Vista, the copyrights are different at the top windows and it appears...

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

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. Also the start menu button is broken on the Vista bar as I guess its looking for resources in my real Windows folder directory. P.S. Also The Windows XP Explorer ...

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

The Classic theme application also breaks Windows Explorer on Windows 10, It seems annoying I can't do much unless I use a alternative explorer like Explorer+++.

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

Just the taskbar has problems, explorer won't launch but everything else works fine. Its not a big problem. :D The Windows XP explorer runs really good, but you cannot add quick shortcuts to the bar. Vista is better with the icons near the clock part, and the ReactOS explorer is the best so far and ...

Re: Classic theme on Windows 8

I have been following this forum topic for so long and just registered a account.

I tried the classic theme on Windows 10 also and it breaks the task bar completely for myself when I play around in a virtual machine.
