You're not gonna end Classic Shell i hope? I've had no issues at all with windows 10 builds. Just been some minor hickups, but been easy to fix. I understand this is alot of work developing the software and maintain it. Maybe you should start taking Money for the software instead of ending it. Bette...

Do you know where more exactly?

Can you show a screenshot please of how it shows? On Windows 10, I think OneDrive is a desktop app. Only on Windows 8.1, it was a Metro app. So it's normal that it doesn't show under "Apps". Also, the search shortcut is a leftover from Windows 8.1 which Microsoft forgot to remove. Ahh.. i...

I've just tried win10TP and only different is there is a pretty useless startmenu.
I also despise the windows 7 startmenu with non-cascading menu.
Not much else differs what i can see. It's more like windows 8.2

Nice to see that Classic Shell works just fine with it.

The way i have put the layout in the menu,
is what is not getting imported/fixed when i import the XML file.
From the "customize start menu" and the layout itself where all is in the menu.

Try the "smoked glass" and the "full glass" skins. They should also show white text (unless WindowBlinds overwrites it somehow). Excluding ClassicStartMenu.exe will do nothing, because the start menu really lives inside the explorer.exe process. Thanks for the reply.I've tried t...
