    I had an issue with using this, it made explorer crash when you right click an item in the start menu all programs menu.

    Same it happens when using StartIsBack++ without the XP Flyout style enabled

    Hi all,
    This is a known problem, and I have noticed this during the development of the pre-alpha version.
    It is not a compatibility problem with other software, the crashing is caused by thread-unsafe code injection (To change context menu appearance)
    but unfortunately, for now, I could not offer a better solution.

    To achieve a crash-less solution (with thread-safe injection), we need to know how explorer.exe and other shell stuff works so that we can decide when and where to inject our code
    But it is so hard find useful information about the internal of windows explorer and shell beyond shell extensions
    So, if you guys know someone who is familiar with shell programming, please introduce him/her to me! I really need help

    Besides waiting for a fix, I think you can try out third-party themes (requires uxtheme) which includes a customized context menu appearance
    There's also a vote on Reddit to ask Microsoft bring back this feature, the best outcome would be Microsoft adding back this option so we don't need to make tricky patches again.

    Well heck, I didn't know it got revived! HORRAY to Open-Shell!
    You may try CSM last build when Ivy still there 4.3.1 ( before he released source ) hadn't any issue under W10 till 19H1. This is the only official one which support 19h1 ( not talking of open shell )

    yes , I'm still happy there is at least his project and I can understand rikka0w0 as we don't know how further W10 builds behave. ATM I'm satisfied with 19h1 features and keep living with if MS breaks too much way of customization

    Last time I tried CSM was om the creators update an it caused a lot of problems. Thus why I stopped using it. It wasn't properly supported after he stopped updating it for Windows 10 and some systems didn't play well with it. Mind, Open Shell works flawlessly. Albeit I tested the Beta.

    Rikka0w0 is my friend. She likes the Moe windows themes which especially need classic content menu.
    So she made this program last year.
    I will tell her about the start menu error.
    But...we only use startisback back to windows7 theme menu and it works well.
    I don't guarantee that she is willing to fix this error.
