    v18 followed desktop personalization on Windows 10, but v19 does not. Instead I get the ugly Windows 10 default.

    In addition, when the All Apps menu is populated, Take Command is applied twice - once in the tcmd folder and once alone. Only the standalone is displayed. desktop.jpg

    V19 has a new interface with Explorer. Try adjusting TCMD's Options\Style\Themes.

    P.S., And v19's settings are separate from v18's.

    Funny, I've never chosen a theme, but it seems I was using Office 2010 Silver without knowing it. :) After upgrading from Win 7, I found that Win 10 looked stark and ugly. I changed it within hours. Besides, blue is usually considered a depressing color and green relaxing. :smile:

    Thanks

    As for the All Apps anomaly, it's easily fixed manually for those of us obsessive about neatness.

    Go to ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu

    Delete the Take Command shortcut.

    Another shortcut already exists where it should be: ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs > TCMD19_x64

    No -- what you're getting is the Office 2013 theme (which is the default for TCMD 19). Go to Tools / Styles / Themes to change it to whatever you want.
