Does Classic Shell support Windows 10 Creators Update?

Yes Classic Shell 4.3.0 is supported on Windows 10 Creators Update. Have you noticed any issues on it?

I just tried it for a bit.

Maybe it's my imagination. Has the glass transparency changed to less blur radius?

There is now a color picker in Windows Color Settings.
It can set the color for Classic Shell Menu, and taskbar, with brighter and darker colors.
Not sure if it can have matching color, like the swatch color boxes already there.

Other.
The System "Magnifier" is slow to respond, where it wasn't before.

I used to be able to open "Command Window" for a folder.
Now it gives me "Windows PowerShell"

A couple of sweet oranges, and a couple of sour lemons in my opinion. :)


Did not notice any problems using CSM :)

Maybe in preparation for maximizing how noticeable their new "Acrylic" effect will be?

That's the opposite in that picture. Blur must be around 25 radius.

Looks like Windows changed it to around 3 radius in CSM menu.
What the h...?
Something weird. I'm going to put in bug reports section.

No I meant that they made it smaller in CU so that when they make it bigger like above, the change will be more noticeable...

Ah shucks, white walls and heaven? I need support, as in a strong pair of shades. :lol:

You know what?
I think the Creators Update is misleading. It has about as much creativity as on the head of a pin.
Reminds me of this truth in advertising tv advert:

https://youtu.be/rMcYi408cn0

Look what MS did to Windows Defender.
The old one has so much creativity, I could make a start menu out of it. :)
The new one, well, at least the link to the old one still works. Takes 35 seconds to show.

Well, sorry for the rant, but... as I see, creativity is falling to the minimums, I suggest white text on white background as default, in the next update. :shock:

I'm still using Windows 7 (I doubt to leave it), luckily I haven't used my Win 10 from last past September, no updates, no worries! :lol:

White on White. That's a good one. :D

They take color away, and to my surprise, they put color back in,
like the old classic theme colors under High contrast settings.

Oh, they took away the L in Lilac. I thought I was the only imperfect one.

I have seen it the last time I used Win 10, last past September, but now I know that some more settings are unavailable with the last... ugh... update.

What I really dislike, is their presumption.
I can understand, from the programming side, how difficult could be to give to everyone the freedom of change and customize everything as he wants.
The problem now is the opposite, they simply removed, block, hide everything could "ruin" their concept, idealization of simplicity.
But now is too simple, it seems poor, put together hastily, without a simple quality check (the updates are a good example, more breakings than fixings...).
