explorer.exe.mui (18.5 KB)I found out recently that the dialog in the explorer.exe from win 8 looks slightly different then the 10 one it has all dialogs for classic taskbar settings so my question is : would there be a way to add these to a cpl file and run on any future win os? anybody tried to make a cpl with that?
everything is there in the win8 explorer.exe.mui but nothing in the windows 10 version is it hard to make a cpl using that?
Scamdisk: I feel like that my 8.1 installation is getting more unstable, doing something as right clicking sometimes does an loop crashing explorer. I have to log 2 times since the first time ignores shell:startup.

ihatemetro: Scamdisk Have you modified explorer.exe or any other DLLs? They could be the source of the problems.

Scamdisk: shell32.dll.mui and comdlg.dll.mui

ihatemetro: Both of those are dangerous to modify. I think you may have messed up the explorer context menus in shell32.dll.mui (they are stored there) and comdlg32.dll.mui could have stored some startup stuff. to run shell:startup. I did modify explorer.exe.mui,

ihatemetro: but it didn't do much and actually still worked fine (It was for taskbar context menu). Weird that 8.1 can't take shell32.dll.mui modifications.

R.O.B.: Never had any issues modifying either of those files when I was on Win8.1, and I was making very similar modifications. Are you seeing anything unusual in Event Viewer?
