    (Note: I noticed how long my post has become... kinda like yours =
    so go over it slowly, and see the suggestions you like about it)


    Hi, had me read a bunch right there. I had to copy paste some stuff into the Reply box below so I remember what to type. Haha. =
    Probably not a lot, but some main topics of what you mentioned...

    So first of all, I do want to point out that I don't work for Microsoft, just a fan of their products, such as Windows. And have a bunch of experience with it and, previous versions of Windows, such as XP like you said. (I watch livestreams/YouTube/etc, and some social media places, and not sure if you're aware of this, but "XP" now-a-days is an emoji for crossed eyes that's sticking its tongue out. I find that SOOOO hilarious. No one thought of that "emoji" when XP was popular. Emoji wasn't even a term then neither, I don't think. Only thing I can remember from then was, :) brb, afk, and lol.)

    Okay now to reply to you, I'm looking at what I copy/pasted. haha. First off, I completely AGREE with you of how you like the old style of Windows, instead of the new style, which has sooo much ... stuff... that aren't necessary.

    1) Classic Start Menu!! YESSS!!!
    You said: "
    Classic Start Menu, which BTW probably won't continue to work with future upgrades"
    You are right. It has a new name. I
    t is now called "Open-Shell Menu". I'm hoping this project creator will stick around and keep it up to date. So it should be reliable until the creator stops updating...

    Check out my Start Menu:

    I even have that customized Start button which lights up to those Windows colors when I press it. I did that customization years and years ago... and weirdly enough, I notice that Microsoft Windows' new modern logo on their site is ... the same thing...
    ...umm... Cool!
    Also, when the Start button isn't pressed, it's the same shape, but all colored in white:

    I also want to mention OldNewExplorer for you. (Sadly, the author of this project is no longer updating this. But it still kinda works well.)
    I made my Explorer windows look like this:

    Nice and simple. It's all about simplicity for me.

    2) Regarding: W
    indows 10 stability:
    Like I said earlier, I don't work for MS, so I am not intending to sound ...slightly against some of their programming, but yes. I agree with you that Windows 10 stability... is... bad compared to XP. Windows 10 tends to slow down, completely unnecessarily, over being on for only 1 day. It bothers me too. Windows 10 runs so much stuff in the background, which I'm sure most of it is useless for the type of work you do, and useless to do what it does in the background for me as well.
    I am hoping that Windows 11 has much more improvement regarding that. But keep in mind, you mentioned you are gonna make a huge RAM upgrade. That should help A LOT. (so don't let what I said how it slows down for me make you feel odd about it; a RAM upgrade from 8 to 32 will help a lot.
    I also want to mention another program called Dexpot which is an app so you can make multiple Desktops. I do different projects, with many stuff of the same related apps in each Desktop, and use my mouse back/forward buttons on the TaskBar to switch between Desktops. Pretty cool.)
    ANOTHER good app: 7+ Taskbar Tweaker

    I set my Taskbar to separate EACH window into its own little rectangle (I'm sure you'd like each window in its own rectangle, like in XP, no combinations of similar stuff), Mouse on Taskbar: Scroll Up/Down = Control computer volume, instead of pressing the sound icon and doing it that way. Convenient. Quick and reliable old-school XP right click menu, and a bunch of other stuff:

    3) You say:
    "B
    ut tell me again how and why you think win-11 (if my system DOES accept an upgrade) will be worth my invested month"
    My suggestion is to WAIT! Don't upgrade immediately to Windows 11:
    An interesting fact that I noticed about modern life is that any advanced technology that is "new" that comes out, has bugs and small issues and such! So keep that in mind. An immediate upgrade to something new isn't really something I would suggest, because of the amount of possible errors that exist in there. Windows 11 looks nice and clean, but I will upgrade when Microsoft ditches Windows 10 in 2025, I think March of that year. By that date, there should have been many updates to Windows 11's stability and security and bug fixes that customers point out.
    I'm sure there are many apps that aren't fully supported with Windows 11 yet; So apps can be unreliable.
    I noticed that with Windows 8.1, and 10, they had small, not too big, "issues" when they were brand new, hence many updates and such. This leads me to that conclusion that this same "idea" applies to 11. (I think I mentioned this in the bold paragraph above, but I forget.. I've been up for about 20 hours.. gotta take a nap soon.)

    Okay cool. Glad I kept my reply nice and short.

    Just a final quick note to thank you! I will be looking into all the apps you mentioned, especially the "Open Shell Menu" before i even do another upgrade to my existing win-10. Feel free to stay in touch. I've attempted to mark the thread "solved" since its been addressed very well by so many.

    You're welcome.
    > I find it funny how the combination of the beginning and the end of my previous reply sounds, kinda funny =

    And yes, I gave you the best info that I am aware of at this time being. I will add you as a friend on the forums here, and in the future, I'm sure I'll come across the friends page, and if there's anything new that comes to my mind by then, then I can send you a quick message or something. Or even send a message to say hi!
    Maybe even we can meet again in a new thread some other time in this Forum!
    It was good talking to you, I'll see you around!
    =)
