    I wouldn't mind seeing a 'Custom Shells' thread, I love seeing what users can accomplish in that respect.
    Myself, I'm more geared to performance so, I'd be more apt to stripping the shell down rather than fancying it up.
    I think it might be kinda tough finding or creating a custom shell to work flawlessly in W10TP seeing as how the native shell is so screwed up in the first place.
    But, by all means, if you've got something to share, throw it up here, we'd love to see it!
    What do you mean by "Custom Shell"?
    Could you explain it a little better? What I understood is something like disabling services, animations, etc?
    I think Edwin is referring to something like Classic Shell or Start8. Both are custom shell tools.

    Sorry bout that. I thought you meant something like 'Rainmeter' or customizations of that likeness.

    Instead of the boring feel you get after using Windows after a while, custom themeing or third party themes.

    You can get all the third party themes you like at Virtual Customs
    They are not too big on that sort of stuff in these forums.

    How is it in terms of system resource usage?

    @ badrobot :
    I'm sure your machine could handle it!
    I don't think W10 TP will handle it though. This multi-layered UI is screwed up enough as it is! (for now anyway)

    No I am not interested with it. Just curious. I like keeping everything simple and light. Just changing color schemes and wallpaper is enough for me.

    I just wish it can handle animated gif wallpaper.
