Pretty much. The guy who wrote classic shell stopped supporting it, but it still works. I'll keep using it until MS breaks it with some future update.

OK. Thanks. I did skip the Classic Shell portion, as I'm going to give Win 10's interface an honest effort. If it annoys me, then oh well. Buh-Bye!

Yeah, probably need an updated version since the Creator's Update and now the Spring Update. I'm still not sold on 10, even though I have it installed on a removable SSD. The other SSD has Linux Mint.

Mine actually looks similar to Win7. Traditional look. I just unpinned all the apps they had and uninstalled all the software I didn't want. Been pinning stuff I actually use.
Looks much cleaner now.
