they are suggesting to edit shell32.dll.mun (for 1903) usually its shell32.dll.mui but they changed that in 1809 thus the incompatible bugs here is a guide on that www.askvg.com/a-complete-tutorial-to-customize-desktop-context-menu-in-windows-xp-using-resource-hacker/ but ignore shell32.dll thats xp since 7 they moved over things to .mui files and in 1903 its mostly .mun (and mui) So we need shell32.dll.mui from windows 7 and copy the menu entries that we need from shell32.dll.mui to shell32.dll.mun since win7 and win10 do these things in similar ways .. Am i the only one doing research on this?
tell me if you get anywhere on this with trial and error

yes have a copy of that file then open both shell32.dll.mui(from windows 7) and shell32.dll.mun from windows 10 IN Resource hacker then look for any difference in the menu dialogs the plan is to replace the immersive context menu with the older but better working one from windows 10. Just try to replace the menu dialogs with the ones from win7 and see what happens

Judging by your screenshot you reshacked explorerframe.mun and shellstyle.dll already to remove the ribbon and folderband from windows , you ran classictheme.exe and the startisback addon to achieve classic taskbar i think the shell32.dll.mun editing with references from win7 shell32.dll.mui should be tried out ...

winnt first introduced it as shell32.dll which lasted that way until 2000/xp era then with longhorn and vista/windows 7 the shell32.dll was split into 2 parts linked to eachother shell32.dll and shell32.dll.mui in windows 10 it was the same way until 1903 where they movied it to shell32.dll.mun same goes for explorerframe.dll.mun thats why ribbon disabler does not work on 1903 you have to reshack the mun file yourself about what needs to be changed theres some old documentation here read it www.askvg.com/a-complete-tutorial-to-customize-desktop-context-menu-in-windows-xp-using-resource-hacker/
keep in mind that things were changed in 10 so maybe an 8.1 shell32.dll.mui would help if you want to be 100% sure it does anything reshack the 1903 shell32.dll.mun is my lucky guess
soapmusic27: I have made us a Discord channel: discord.gg/9jtudv Also created a thread about it. I never knew what the Win10 2004 searchbar issue was until just now. For some reason, I am running 2004 with classic theme and the searchbar is unaffected

Splitwirez: Apparently the Windows XP source code has leaked. Keep your distance, folks.

ihatemetro: Splitwirez It was? Which Service Pack? To all people, don't use it for making Windows more Classic. Edit: It's SP1 I can tell, and any Windows NT OS older than XP was also leaked. Edit 2: Bits of Windows 10 source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Well i'm even more scared when 7's will get spilled out on the internet.
Sept 25, 2020 5:38:56 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi Oh no, not 7 or Vista. At least people can find a way to get Windows 10 drivers on 7 and still supply security updates, but still it's going to be illegal.
Sept 25, 2020 5:41:12 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Ah, well I will probably switch to 10 and setup Classic Theme or go to Linux pretty soon.
Sept 25, 2020 5:45:12 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi That's not even all of it, Windows CE 3-7, Server 2003, and MS-DOS 3.30 and 6, as well as original Xbox source code have been leaked as well. Bits of Xbox one source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Oh lord, this is the gigaleak like Nintendo but not really.
Sept 25, 2020 6:25:31 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi I also saw a tiny bit of Windows 7 source code once too, but it's a tiny bit and not that important, from 2010. Can't tell if it's real or not.

Hayafumi: There goes another partition on my drive, gonna install either LTSC or LTSB on it.
Sept 25, 2020 13:58:39 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi LTSB 2016 is recommended, it supports Classic Theme and has longer support than LTSB 2015.
Sept 25, 2020 14:14:20 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Is kinda of a struggle for me to make Pre-1803 because I can't get everything to start up, but i'll try again.
Sept 25, 2020 15:17:48 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Once again, i'm really new on Classic Theme +8
Sept 25, 2020 15:18:04 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Also, is a struggle finding LTSB 2016.
Sept 25, 2020 19:55:42 GMT -8
Hayafumi: I'm just going with 8.1.
