I did not create the GitHub repository, but I believe the skins are there: https://github.com/coddec/Classic-Shell ... lSrc/Skins
And the images for the start buttons can be found here: https://github.com/coddec/Classic-Shell ... artMenuDLL

It has the ones that are part of the Classic Shell software. Any additional skins that you see on this forum are created by other people. You need to contact them for the actual source files and usage terms.

What about just sticking to developing it for LTSB or just updating when there's a new build instead of racing to keep up with the latest Windows updates?

I mean if it currently runs on LTSB then it should continue to run on LTSB for 10~ years if you dont install anything beyond the security updates

Ivo ... what about a lo-fi read-only version for another year after that, maybe things turn around. That shouldn't be that costly to host. Feels sad to see history being erased like this, in this time and age a powerful group which has their grip around the technology sector is only interested in pushing their things and overriding all other cultures, something like this could stand as a protest against that.

Especially if some of the programmer/hacker gurus get their head out of their butts, so many haxors around the globe and so little hardcore mods for windows, for example the termsrv.dll mod which allowed multiple simultaneous users through RDP on one PC plus a real physical user.

Maybe something would happen if someone who has a good amount of bitcoins would start posting "win project jobs" about "find a way to bring back this windows feature on this windows version and build" on TOR sites, there's absolutely going to be someone out there who would be willing to do it and do it really good for a price.

On this Win10 build I have right now, unfortunately, the UseWin32TrayClockExperience does not work, but I knew it worked on one of the version I had tested half a year ago, and I looked in detail, it was actually one tiny build number higher, so somehow now I have a little bit older version (probably because of the lack of that unnecessary update which was a tack-on) but it looks like that thing made this work. Because everything else works except this, so it's a pity.

Unfortunately no bitcoins, yet (oh well), but I'll say it anyway with a General Carville (RA2) voice: Commander, get me my Win32TrayClock Experience back!

Exactly, I have no idea what are most of these "windows gurus" thinking. You're not suppose to run Windows Update, you're not suppose to "move" to any OS, jeez!

Get another disk and put Win10 on, don't bother with dual boot, then alternate the disks, it's not a good idea if newer windows versions detect another windows installation, they'll try to mess with it or even push updates and promos.
Then install all the drivers and anti-spying and disable updates without connecting to the net, takes prep time to DL, after connecting then do the rest of the tweaks, and there you go, tweaks will keep working forever, no need to switch any OSes.

There's very little useful in updates, and if you do it, you do it with WSUSOffline and that's how I updated my Win7 twice in over a 5 year period, by manually using DISM tools to update over 80 updates at once.

However it took me like 2 days to manually scour thoguht the updates which are going to beneift and which ones were part of the Win10 promo crap as well as the ones which are high-risk for messing things up, but this is also a lot of experience on my part which plays in, an average person won't have the patience for any of this, but this is what is the difference from sheeple vs guru.

I've tested Win10 3 times through the years, but only for a few hours each time, didn't like a lot of it, but I wasn't even planning testing for much, from the get go it was clear it's going to be a crappy OS for the old cats, that's why I did not bother with any of it until 2 years later, this year.
Why? Because if you're a windows guru, you're suppose to know that everything and anything new from MS will have at least a year of the beta-test period, you're not suppose to take a new OS seriously in that timeframe, everyone that does is a trapped lab rat.

So this month I took the time to nail it, tweaked the crap out of it, took me a week of hard work full hour days, long long story, it's going to look like Win7 soon enough when I finish all my tweaks, including the full GUI and the boot logo.

I will also take it a step further in the following year (hopefully) and do something what does probably not exist yet, a full blown system icons change so almost every icon possible will have a Win7 version, including the mouse cursor.

That's what a windows guru is, you people are doing it wrong, time to stop being sheeple.

After all this, you would think, "OMG WHAT ABOUT SECURITY" ... if you're a PC guru, you're not suppose to keep anything highly private on such a computer you use daily and online anyway, so who cares if they hack or do a few viruses, they wouldn't find anything important.

But then, you would ask, "OMG WHAT IF THEY ENCRYPT EVERYTHING" ... if you're a PC guru, you have regular clonezilla full disk image backups, you're not suppose to deal with any OEM or Windows gimmick backup tools.

I'm just getting started!
