    Get CMD back with Creators Update instead of Powershell
    Ofc if you want to stick with Powershell gl getting acquainted with new syntax...


    Update (May 1 2017) - You can use WinAero Tweaker or even directly from the settings for the above tweak, But here's another one that will let you get context menu for both cmd and powershell with admin privileges as well.
    Code:
    ::COMMAND PROMPT HERE
        reg add "HKCR\Directory\shell\MenuCmd" /v "MUIVerb" /t REG_SZ /d "@shell32.dll,-22022" /f

    You might check after boot each time for a while, to see if it's consistent, or only happens occasionally.

    Even after running your tools automatically at boot, Windows might come through later on a maintenance pass and undo the settings.

    If you run for longer that 24 hours - no daily reboots - I'd check randomly / daily for changes made while running.

    I have been checking for a few days now, its consistent-all full green-blocked. You know what they say , build a smarter mouse trap and you get a smarter mouse, in other words, M$ will work on ways to go around privacy settings or reset them and Privacy programs will work on ways so they dont. The re immunize feature on each startup is a nice feature to have.

    How to configure Classic Shell to look exactly like the Windows 7 Start Menu:

    1- Download and install Classic Shell, choose a custom setup and install nothing but the Classic Start Menu and the Classic Shell Update (optional)
    2- After the installation is done, click on the start menu once and import the settings from this file: Classic Shell XML Configuration File
    3- Download this Start Menu Orb and select it from the Classic Shell Setting > Start Menu Style > Replace Button > Then browse for the image: Windows 7 Start Menu Orb
    3- Click on Start > PC Settings > Personalization > Colors, then set the options as illustrated below:

    Can you take a look into Resource Monitor and see how many processor threads Classic Shell eats? Thanks
