I managed to combine startisback++ with classic shell and it worked great! What you forgot to arrange was the taskbar buttons. I changed them in resource hacker and I managed to get the taskbar buttons really close to the ones in windows XP.

1. Open luna.msstyles with Resource Hacker.exe
2. Find the images of the taskbar buttons and replace them with the ones in windows XP
3. Save the file and close it.
4. Install classic shell.
5. Set the start button to the windows XP start button.
6. Set the start menu style to classic 2 columns.
7. Set the skin to Windows XP Luna
8. Set the taskbar texture to a texture of the windows xp taskbar.
9. Go to start is back++ settings (Assuming that you have already installed it), and set the start button to a completely transparent image.
10.Also set the modified luna.msstyles style for the taskbar and start menu.
11.Add a toolbar called quick launch to your taskbar and unpin all items from the taskbar. Now when you want a link in the taskbar just drag the icon of the program you want in the toolbar.
12.Set the toolbar to hide the title and text
13.Also make sure that in the PC settings you set the taskbar buttons to small and set the combine taskbar buttons to "Never combine".

which image is the taskbar buttons?

2004James's avatar

There are multiple images you need to change, the image numbers should be these: 988, 989, 990, 991, 998. Hope this helps!

Does this effect performance at all? As in Video Editing, Rendering, 3D Modeling, Animation, and Gaming? I do all of that and this looks really nice but I don't want to sacrifice any performance.

I don't think so. I have it on my computer and it's still good while running Photoshop, Chrome, BeamNG.Drive, Blender, Minecraft and more.
