Is there a way to get back the old "alt+f4" menu, with the background fading in black and white? OS: Windows 10 1903 (I have no idea of how that window is called cause it closes when i click somewhere to go in task manager)
I have recreated the menu WITH fade effect. As powerplayer stated: You can easily replace the start menu option using Classic Shell or Open-Shell.
The only thing that you can't do is replace the Alt+F4 menu since it's runs on the close events of the taskbar and desktop, which are part of explorer.exe.You actually might be able to. I forgot about the most powerful utility in existance. AutoHotkey. If you add a key event and check if selected window is part of explorer.exe: open the menu. Else: forward the event to the open window.
Just forget what I said, using syscalls this is easily done in AHK.

ʇǝǝๅ ftw You don't need AHK for this. GetForegroundWindow from user32.dll will give you a handle to the active (focused) window. You can then use a keyboard event hook and open your shutdown window only if the desktop is focused.
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?
