    Before Win 10, it used to be that you could right click on an icon and select Properties. That option has been removed so is there any way to put Properties back in the context menu please?

    I would like to correct this nonsense that appeared on my taskbar this morning:

    Yes and no. I have had it open a few times and closed it while using compatibility troubleshooter. The icon remains only ⅛ of its normal size.

    I also tried right clicking on the executable's icon but the Properties dialogue offers no option for changing the icon.

    Edit:
    I just created a shortcut in the Program Data folder and then changed the shortcut's icon. That doesn't work either. :(

    2nd Edit:
    Restarting the PC fixed it. I would still like to have the Properties option in the context menu though. I'm sure I won't be alone with that.

    So, my app is frozen and I click on it RMB in the taskbar and select "Close Window", nothing happens. Hate this! Then I have to open task manager, search for the process, then RMB and "end process tree". Why? Why doesn't it closes a window in the first place? How can I correct this behavior? Thx!

    Well, hallelujah... AeroGlass is finally available for Windows OS X Creators Abortion, so we don't have to tolerate the pastel vomit UI any more!!!

    Download version 1.5.4 for Creators Abortion. Your existing donation key will work if you had a previous version of M$ OS X installed on the same drive.

    It is still there, but not very obvious. Their mission to to make things more difficult and call that easier due to loss of functionality. Micro$loth have removed the ability to manipulate the properties of the "special" shortcuts created during Office setup. You have to create your own shortcut to edit the properties. This applies to all Office programs.

    To tweak the properties of the shortcuts that they haven't screwed up, you do it as shown below.
