Very beautiful theme

That's so cool!!!!

StartIsBack++ isn't the best Start Menu tool if you want to emulate XP, i think that would actually be Open-Shell

(but you can combine the two to get something really accurate)

I hate win$hit and made memes on them, that’s the power of the penguins army

so far, i can see where this is going. you have a clear vision: recreating the look of windows xp on windows 10. four and a half stars.

unfortunately, this concept is not original--many people are trying to copy the look of windows xp onto many os's, including other versions of windows and even linux. so, you get one star for originality. sorry.

technique is only two and a half for the simple fact that it's not yet perfect, and the fact that it relies on another program and msstyles. i am aware that recreating the windows xp start menu without any additional programs is kind of impossible, but if it was your own program, then i'd give you extra stars. perhaps you should also try getting windows xp icons and using them too, to help increase the technique and impact scores. speaking of impact...

i've given you two stars for impact. what it currently does, it does well. but this also goes back to originality. this does not impact many people when there are similar, if not better, versions of this for windows 10.

also, may i just ask: why is the shutdown button orange? i know it was a separate icon in windows xp, and xp didn't have search bar, but you should make it match the colour of the theme.

i hope this critique helps you. i'm not trying to be rude or anything; remember that critiques are to aid you in improving your work, by letting you know what i, and others, thought was not good so you can change it and make it better.

thank you for reading. have a nice day!
Does this work for Windows 8.1?

Not Showing Folder for me

can you make the taskbar buttons look pressed in just like to original themes on xp if that makes sense?

do you have the theme of xp and 7 for version 1709, build 16299 of windows 10 ???

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".
