    Go to Explorer options -> view and under advanced settings, check the "launch folder windows in a separate process" - this gives me the usual right-click context menu.

    Only in Explorer, not system wide. See Desktop and Desktop shortcuts (most of them) right-click, context menu menu is still the new style.

    Can someone post a tweak if possible to this headache inducing feature.
    When I click on say computer or any window, it jumps in my face like an approaching truck. Can we get the transition of windows 10.
    Thanks.
    Anyway, a few days out and so many tweaks already required.

    Anyone know a way to bypass the new right click menu and go right back to the current one?

    That does change for explorer and task manager for example, but it doesnt change taskbar format.

    So far only for explorer if you enable separate processes in folder options, but not for desktop

    Anyone figured out multi monitor task bars yet? setting
    Code:
    MMTaskbarEnabled
    to 1 shows the taskbar both monitors, but
    Code:
    MMTaskbarMode
    seems to not have any effect, and therefore the taskbar just stays empty

    If MS is intent upon keeping the new desktop context menu overlay, the least they could do is make the "Show me more options" able to fold out (cascade) and thus get to the original context menu. I kind of want to like their explorer and context revamps and they make a lot of sense in many ways, but some of these things should be optional or tweakable.

    The context menu is unfamiliar, that's all. Once we get used to it and customise it by adding the buttons we want, it should be fine. We've had the same reaction to almost every GUI change over the years. The new GUI isn't bad - the loss of productivity as we try to figure out where our commonly used items went - that's the problem. All our 'muscle-memory' skills are gone - we're having to pay attention and see where we're clicking.

    You've been able to add context entries to the new context menu? And cascading menus? Direct right-click access to much-used items and utils?

    Not yet, but once we do, we'll be fine with the new context menu.

    I've been out of the loop on this since they added the anti-tamper stuff in recent win10 builds.
    The old method of using the single group policy registry key doesn't do it.

    It's possible that group policy adds custom guids or something to mimic the admin manual disabling of the anti-tamper setting. <--- pure speculation
    Can anyone shed any light?

    Regarding Windows Defender, how bad is the performance hit if you turn off every protection in the GUI? I'm assuming that's the only reason for wanting to get rid of it.
