I got the Start Menu looking like Windows 7. But the windows like Documents etc. still have a square look and without the Aero Glass look. Do you know how to match the look?

Aero was part of the desktop environment and that ended with Win7. While it technically might be possible to get a look like that again it's definitely not something I would suggest nor is it something a Start Menu replacement can do.

That said, you shouldn't be using Classic Shell anymore. If memory serves it's no longer supported and Open-Shell is a continuation by a different person.

I've never looked into software like that simply because there can be large issues from using it. In the case of Win10 it's even worse than previous versions of Windows in how they manage to break so much software such as this from one update to another. Some of the programs also dig into files and such which are better left alone in Windows as the files were never meant to be messed with or at least not messed with anymore.

A basic menu replacement is one thing but messing with the DE in Windows can cause some serious issues and which can popup after any update. It's simply not worth the potential problems in my opinion.

After I saved a desktop theme in Windows I realized that may have prevented the windows from changing as well. Can I "unsave" that desktop theme simply by deleting it in Resources folder?
