Microsoft released an update to Win11 a few weeks ago that gives you the option to revert to the old context menu, no hacks required.
Is there a YT rule that requires presenters to open their mouths and look stupid? And what's with all the click bait titles?
Back on topic--, at first I thought it was simply a lack of management direction, and general incompetence (or perhaps disinterest); but at this late stage of the game Win is so bad from a user ergonomic standpoint that I can only conclude they are doing it on purpose. Making it the way it is intentionally, in order to muck with their users. Out of a perverse and evil psychology.
Microsoft rarely—if ever—advises editing the registry to 'fix' feature changes.
Yeah...in the old days when Win tanked, MS (or the PC builder, which was really MS's customer, not the end user (who most likely didn't buy a retail copy of Windows) would just tell you to 'reinstall Windows' using the installation or recovery disk. You could do that when it was just a handful of floppies, and when user programs had their own directories. Registry changed all of that, for sure.
Like I've said, anytime you have to open 'regedit' in order to fix something the company has screwed up from their last version, you know you are screwed. LOL
What a pathetic company. At least when Steve B. was in charge, you could expect a cheap laugh, watching in amazement as he sweated out the 'monkey dance'. But those days are gone, and now there's nothing left for users to do, except wait out their next subscription renewal. Software as a service. The gift that keeps on giving.
Maybe in 12 they'll get it back to where it was in 10, which was where it was in 7, before they screwed it up in 8. I'm not taking bets on it, but who knows? Until then, there's always GitHub. You can usually find a few capable usability hacks hosted there.
