Tihiy, you definition of a boss you. Are there any significant changes made with regards to Windows 8.1? It isn't broke so, I don't need to fix it but, I do want to know if there are any significant changes.

There are some changes, but 8.1 should not be affected.

Hi Tihiy, just wondering if it's possible to use OldNewExplorer to change the width of the Caption buttons back to how they were in either 7 or 8, this new style in 10 looks horrible, for some reason they made the max/restore and min buttons larger then the close button, I would love to have these back to how they were, I also dislike the new Task Item buttons as well, they are no longer able to be modified fully using the msstyles and this is terrible for themers like myself, I don't know if any of these things can be modified through UI files or not, I have not come across them before.

You've probably already seen this, but they can be made to look better...

Hi Noel, yes I know they can be skinned, that's no problem, I just want to know if it could be possible to revert them to the proportions they were previously, I also know they can be resized in system metrics but this still doesn't change the proportions of them, I know Tihiy has done some amazing wizardry already with the address bar and navigation button spacing so hoping maybe he has some insight on caption buttons as well.

I only mentioned it because just last night I was working to port my more recent "skinning" (theme atlas) work back to Win 8.1, and lo and behold I had a moment when I thought the Win 10 way, with the three equal sized buttons, felt better. 

 

It could be a case where using the new thing for a time could cause its characteristics to grow on you (I wouldn't have believed it possible had it not happened to me after I had initially felt the new proportions felt very wrong).

 

Or not, in which case I hope someone can hack in a workaround for you.

Thanks for the Windows 10 support. It works on Win10 10041 x64 but then sometimes it stops working and ribbon comes back on

OldNewExplorer BREAKS Paint, Picasa, and possibly more in Windows 10 TP build 10041.

Not having any issues as well, sure you have latest version? What are the file sizes?

I try to open Paint, or Picasa with OldNew installed, and they immediately, or very soon after go to not responding.  Uninstall OldNew, and they are back to normal.  I downloaded from TiHiy's link above.

 

EDIT:  Interesting, I opened the config file, and clicked install, now everything seems OK.  I never changed a thing.  I have the folder on my C drive, and didn't remove it.  Clicking uninstall several hours ago, then just now clicking install seems to have made the issue go away.  Hmmm....

I'm having a problem.  I need to uninstall oldnewexplorer to check something and nothing happens when I click uninstall in the config.

 

NVM I figured it out.  I had changed it's location since first running it.  Works fine now.

Some problems with win10 build 10049, open/save file dialog not opening, uninstalling onex solves it. I tried with notepad and wordpad.
