    Alright, I'm using the Classic Start menu and I want to make it look like Ubuntu (or linux w/e) and I have removed some of the things, I only have showing (Turn off Computer , Run, Settings, and Programs. To start, I want to remove the sidebar, without using small icons?

    I will ask more when (if) i get this fixed..thanks

    Why not use a different theme? That removes that little windows XP bar?

    Personally I kinda like it :D

    It's in the Explorer.exe file, search through that and you can find it. I'm just too lazy now lol

    I've looked high and low. I don't see a way of doing this without using small icons. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think it is impossible to do without doing a lot of resource editing.
