Animated Taskbar Idea

https://imgur.com/a/kf4vJiD

Can't post a gif here?
It was suggested that I post this in this sub as well
this is mostly a proof of concept of Gohan running along the taskbar

But imagine any other correctly sized, and smoothly looping animation. Looks like any standard gif will work. Can also put gifs in the start menu background. Anyone have cool ideas other than, or including dragon ball? Even just a moving water texture could potentially look pretty interesting

How Do I Get My Taskbar Pink Just Right?

Hey everyone! I'm trying to change the color of my taskbar to a specific shade of pink. I've tried so many shades, but none match the exact pink I found in this picture online. If anyone knows how to get a pink closer to that color, please let me know! Thanks, and bye!

Nowadays what's the best way to bring back "QuickLaunch Toolbar", or "Folder Toolbars" of W10 to W11?

What I mean is this: link of picture ;

It seems that some tools have disrecommended like StartAllBack and ExplorerPatcher, or not being updated has made them too buggy, or microsoft itself disrecommended them?

So what should I do get a toolbar in the taskbar where I can throw a bunch of folders and shortcuts into? Specially if I can have multiple buttons, in the linked picture I have 3 !

Any opinions are highly appreciated. : )

A few of the names I heard are: SystemTrayMenu, StartAllBack, WinaeroTweaker, ExplorerPatcher, Stardock, Retrobar, Qttabar, Start11, ClassicShell, OpenShell, WindHawk;

What I would do for Windows 12

Will probably add images later

• Windows 10-like Action Center but with Windows 11’s design language (floating, rounded, Fluent, etc.) or the Windows 10X one. I like when everything is in one place, instead of the separate Action Center and Notification Center. Option in Settings to separate them just like Windows 11.
• Move Copilot to the Start Menu or Action Center. If not, move to the left of the taskbar if it is centered.
• Move Search to the left of the taskbar when centered
• Add the ability to make your own menu on the taskbar (or a folder)
• Add even more telemetry /j
• Make Windows Defender fully Fluent
• Make OOBE be in dark mode by default and ask if the system should be in dark mode
• Bring back the “Hero” wallpaper but with the current Windows logo
• Add different-colored variants of the “Bloom” and “Hero” wallpapers
• Update Windows 9x/XP/Vista/7 icons to be Fluent
• Update Metro stuff to be Fluent
• Add support for dark mode to old system components (Run, Control Panel, etc.)
• Allow to center just the program icons on the taskbar, not the Start menu
• Readd toolbars feature
• Readd tablet mode toggle
• Add option to keep Widgets in the Start menu, Action Center, Desktop or the taskbar
• Add option to merge Desktop and the Start menu
• Allow Start menu resizing and making it fullscreen
• Add something like Apple’s Stage Manager
• Make taskbar icon size configuring an option in Settings (it is possible using regedit on Windows 11 but doesn’t show up as an option anywhere)
• Allow taskbar resizing
• Add tabs to Paint
• Readd Sets feature
• Allow hiding the Recommended section and moving All Apps to the main screen in the Start menu
• Update the loading icon systemwide (the login screen still has the Windows 10/8 loading icon)
• Readd moving taskbar to the left and right of the screen and make moving it to the top an option (it is possible using regedit but is not an option)
• More?

My Windows 10 Start Menu Concept

I made this start menu to use elements from windows 7, 10 and 11

The layout is uses Windows 7

The alls apps is a modified verson of windows 10 with folder and app in the all apps section sperate from each other

used icons from windows 11

in all i also re organized the start menu from the ground up to remove unwanted stuff and add what people actually need no live tiles no forced onedrive or reccomened files and i feell that pinning apps to the start menu is useless and you can just search them or get them in all apps anyway

New Start Menu
