wintersports: Hello, will there be some fix for context menus and taskbar for the Classic Theme? Aug 16, 2018 4:46:49 GMT -8
novadelta2: ha Ha HA! Aug 16, 2018 14:25:28 GMT -8
R.O.B.: Context menus? Yes. Taskbar? There's not really a perfect solution at the moment, unfortunately. EDIT: I'd like to clarify that there are solutions, just not perfect ones. Aug 16, 2018 20:41:00 GMT -8 *
powerplayer: Why did nobody made a custom injectable classic taskbar based on opensource classicshell and win7 taskbar tweaker? Aug 20, 2018 18:53:30 GMT -8
Baloo: There is one on here...it's the ReactOS taskbar. It's a little finicky but I think it's perfectly fine to use. You need to combine it with a program like Watchcat or Taskbar Hide" Aug 31, 2018 9:26:42 GMT -8

16bitlover: Let's collect signatures for Windows to provide us with a (optional) win98 interface for W10! Sept 20, 2018 11:44:59 GMT -8
R.O.B.: I doubt that would work. If it doesn't help Microsoft's bottom line, there's no reason for them to dedicate resources to create such a feature (and provide support for it on top of that). From a business perspective, it would make no sense. Sept 20, 2018 17:04:53 GMT -8
R.O.B.: I wish they would though. One can only dream! Sept 20, 2018 17:05:21 GMT -8
