    If you intend to have a chat with only one person there are better means than a public forum.

    BTW No problem, I'll keep in mind to ignore you the next time you're looking for help .

    Where was I asking for help? lol.
    I was just stating that taskbar.dll from 21996 doesn't work on 22000 and it puts explorer into a crash loop.

    Asking "what AMM is" looks like asking for help to me.

    Whatever I don't want to be dragged in a pointless discussion about nothing, so that's my last reply.

    Seem a AMM mission to fix something unwillingly. :D

    (AMM already fixes a bunch of WMC problems, I think WMC is not even mentioned in AMM features)

    MS Has not messed his UI since a decade, so yes very usable, as usual.

    Local files are fine as long as MS and LAV keeps their codecs updated.

    TV channels are in a different situation: new SD channels using MP4/h264 instead of Mpeg2, will work fine, but on late 2022 when all channels (both SD and HD channels) will be migrated to HEVC/H265 WMC will not manage them correctly :hmm: (unless someone figures how to fix the problem)

    i can confirm wmc still works (watching video files that is)

    and just for fun;

    windows mail, outlook express, w7 games, windows calender, dvd maker all work too.

    With undockingenabled, my touch keyboard/emoji (Win + .) broke. Anyone has found a way around that? Win+X also breaks but that useless pos that I loathe since it replaced the real Start menu in Windows 8 is completely replaced by the Open Shell menu on my system. :D Besides in new Windows 10 versions, it mostly launches the crappy Settings app instead of the good old Control Panel so good riddance to Win+X as long as Open Shell worx.

    Forgot to mention that you must disable UndockingDisabled to use everything else with the old taskbar.

    Is there a way to disable the new context menus without UndockingDisabled?

    I don't understand why they keep removing options/registry hacks/choice. If they make too drastic changes, this will turn into Windows Vista once again... People took 6 years to adjust to the mess Windows 10 especially initially was, and now they have to adjust again to a new system. Plus, the new taskbar is a huge downgrade when it comes to power users... I know plenty of people that spend ages at the computer with their taskbar set to 'Never combine' and with it on the top etc... what are those going to do, Windows 10 is essentially dead now, they pretty much said they won't bring any updates to it, so, what, screw those people just because they again want to force a tablet friendly UI down people's throats...?

    Just use XMouseButtonControl (or a proprietary utility from logitech/microsoft/whatever) to emulate Shift+F10 with a right click

    Is there a way to use old explorer or old taskbar.dll and still be able to see modern apps (like Settings) in the taskbar? If I use the regular explorer and set UndockingDisabled = 1, it works fine but disables search. Please help, thanks.

    Classic Shell has its own search field that works well, so who cares?
