Hallo,
Background:
I still had a CleanInstall of the Win11 build 22000.71, this recovers and after boot unfortunately still the new Explorer in it. Thought it's gone when the update goes through to the 22000.100, so it was strangely with my INplaceupgrade via Win10. But puff cake, very annoying for me, incomprehensible. Then google and lo and behold, found an interesting RegistryHack,
https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/res ... windows-11,
came already in the upper search results, thought that is certainly Murks like Win10 StartMenu again. But let's test it:
Restart and lo and behold, the old explorer is back.
here are the reg:

The zip was created with RegistryFinder
has no negative after-effects according to the event viewer, system runs completely normally.
Speaking of which: the CleanInstall has significantly fewer errors in the events.

I have now installed the new Version 1.30, it shows the RegHack, i have it done by yourself. 1627898169816.png;)

EDIT:
i have tried on an inplaceUpgrade the Old Startmenu Hack from Winaero, ( with Taskbar ), but not satisfied because you have to install Openshell and too many errors in the event viewer

MS separated the Taskbar and Start process from Explorer. Practically start from scratch. My guess would be, we'll get most of our features back soon

I hope sooo..,
also the confusing settings app is crap, since it is far better with Win10 !!, does MS extra make the privacy settings more confusing ?, i have blocked a lot with the intern Firewall, WindowsSpyBlocker - Download, WindowsSpyBlocker/spy.txt at master · crazy-max/WindowsSpyBlocker, i hope this helps.:shush:
