    @Brink:
    FYI: the "Change Text Size" entry in your 'Personalization (Classic)' Menu now reroutes you to the Settings App.
    Thank you Edwin. I'll take a look and play with it.

    @Edwin,

    Ok. All fixed now. You can download and merge the new Add_Personalize-classic_to_desktop_context_menu.reg file to update it to show the classic Display screen again.

    I just installed version Win insider 14361 and this has stopped working for all of the "old" context clicks. The Personalize (classic) still show up on a right click to desktop, but when I go to change, say, Desktop Background, the screen flickers and the taskbar icons start reloading again. Back to the old 1 minute or 10 minute desktop background changes. Gadgets are now dead as well except for 8Gadgets.

    Thank you John for letting me know.

    It appears to be some sort of bug in build 14361. If you manually run the commands used by the .reg file to open the context menu items, they open just fine, but for some reason they are not working from the context menu. It seems like it just restarts explorer instead.

    Yep. they do work but not from a desktop right click. Whew. At least there is a temporary workaround. I will keep testing this on every new build and see when (if) they start working again from the desktop and will post here. Thanks Brink!

    John,

    Yep, it's a bug in Windows that'll hopefully get sorted soon.

    Fixed in the latest 14367 Preview build. right clicking on the personalize classic now shows up the old classic menu.
