Has anyone figured a way to change the sound menu back to the old way? Its annoying having to click more to change or even see my output device.... also looking for a way to show all icons in taskbar again.. Whats Microsofts obsession with burying everything deeper in menus... /sigh

I find it a little bit amusing how so many people are requesting for all these Windows 10 features to be restored back into Windows 11.
And I fully understand why. :wink:

Windows 11 is an abomination.

there has yet to be one version of the windows os that i have left intact. all have been good, but not without customization. to each there own. 10 sucked too, imho, but was good enough with enough modifications. horrible for tablets though. - just my side rant - no more comments from me.
