Thanks you two, lol. It'll be a nice time to get the family together again. As for the skin, I'll test on Win7 a bit later. I already use a Vista skin pack, which has made 7 look like Vista a lot, although still not perfect. It doesn't really matter anyway, as 7's UI is the most alike to Vista's tha...

Hello once again, I don't know if I'm able to continue on the skin, as I uninstalled Windows 8 (I corrupted it accidentally, and it never seems to like recovering easily after being corrupt, hence why I won't get to install it again any time soon). I'm back on Windows 7 again for now, so I won't be ...

Could you please also post how you have set it up too, if you don't mind? I have some issues figuring out how to do those changes, they get messed up.

Well, to describe this better, I'm gonna post two screenshots of the buttons I'm talking about (the one in the classic shell start menu skin and the original Vista one). That one is a bit too small. (check photos labeled Screenshot and vista start menu 1) Also, I uploaded the image of the original m...

Okay, thanks for the advice. I uploaded a Vista start menu screenshot to show how ours is supposed to be like. The buttons I'm trying to talk about are those in the second column (Computer, Control Panel...). In Vista, they're much bigger and not that condensed as they are in this menu. Also, I got ...

Guys, I have found something we need to adjust for the power button. I made a shutdown power button to test in the menu, and it looks pretty awful, because it's a bit stretched (137x24) from the original size (129x24). The second column needs to be adjusted to that size and we need bigger buttons in...

Yeah, couldn't understand some things about the search box yet, but whatever. I'll make new buttons for the menu, as I found the original source :P Edit: I made a Vista Basic theme if anyone wants, too. Have only made those buttons on the right, and some experiments with the search box (not done yet).

I have found the user frame already :P Now, I wonder... will be able to get those buttons to function as they show themselves, or we will be stuck in just one? I mean, will we ever be able to change the shutdown button function, but change the button bitmap too that corresponds to the function at th...

I already have a Vista SP2 ISO and a Server 2008 disc, so we can find the userframe in there.

edit: Look what I found in explorer.exe, too :P

Thanks Gaurav, it's nice to see that something I made was finally good in the end.

And yeah juniper7, Splitwirez and I may also collaborate in this to get that skin perfect :P



Edit: Added a picture of how the orange color in All Programs looks like when you install new apps.

Haha, thanks you two. It was pretty easy to find the colors for the buttons and such, but time-consuming to create the images. At least Server 2012 is awesome to work on with Photoshop CS6, and with those mods, you can barely tell if that's really Vista or not :lol:

Hello everyone, I have just joined the Classic Shell forums, but I've been using Classic Shell itself for some time now. So, I made a Vista start menu skin for Classic Shell! It's about 95-98% identical to the original, in both functionality and looks. There are still some issues I haven't fixed yet...
