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
Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.

meow: I have made a tutorial on how to get centered title text in windows 7! It’s in the visual styles section.
