    Project mention: I think that MS Store's Dev's need to be appreciated I mean look at the fluency it looks like a fluid flowing across your screen (Ik the recording is kinda laggy because I am running 2 virtual desktops ) | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 2023-03-28

    There is an issue with the windows app sdk having bad rendering performance if your monitor is set above 60Hz (https://github.com/microsoft/microsoft-ui-xaml/issues/7290) Should be fixed next version (1.3 or 1.4)

  • Open-Shell-Menu

    Classic Shell Reborn.

    Project mention: Get Off My Desktop! Windows Must Stop Showing Tabloid News | reddit.com/r/privacy | 2023-03-28

    I installed OpenShell and haven't looked back. It hijacks the start button, and presents something akin to some blessed combination of Windows 98's, Windows XP's, and Windows 7's start bar. Typing to find suggestions is about as logical as you could want. I don't like most of the other features that come with the tool, but that's a small price to pay for a better start menu experience.

  • ProjectReunion

    The Windows App SDK empowers all Windows desktop apps with modern Windows UI, APIs, and platform features, including back-compat support, shipped via NuGet.

    Project mention: Has MAUI improved last couple of months? | reddit.com/r/dotnetMAUI | 2023-03-19

    As far as I know, there are still some issues with OIDC integration. See this, for example.

  • SecureUxTheme

    🎨 A secure boot compatible in-memory UxTheme patcher

    Project mention: Black screen pulling me out of fullscreen video / game and freezing | reddit.com/r/WindowsHelp | 2023-01-30

    Hard to explain, been happening since today after I installed a few apps, namely Ear Trumpet from Microsoft Store, tried installing and using WindowBlinds from a YouTube QoL recommendations video here and here but uninstalled after it didn't work, as well as Black In Black / BIB here + UltraUXThemePatcher + SecureUXTheme to try and get BIB to work (which it didn't), and finally Twinkle Tray to adjust desktop brightness like you can on laptops. My best guess is the WindowBlinds app fucking something up, or Twinkle Tray turning off my screen when it goes to black mode, seemingly coming back on when I press my keyboard or mouse, and then freezing and accepting no responses.

  • filesystem

    An implementation of C++17 std::filesystem for C++11 /C++14/C++17/C++20 on Windows, macOS, Linux and FreeBSD.

    Project mention: Rust's recursive directory iterator 5x faster than CPP | reddit.com/r/rust | 2022-06-16

    On C++ side you may also try ghc::filesystem. It may cache more data fro directory entry.

  • Fedora-Remix-for-WSL

    Fedora Remix for Windows Subsystem for Linux.

    Project mention: What is your favorite desktop environment? | reddit.com/r/Fedora | 2022-11-26

    At the risk of being downvoted to hell, but to offer a different perspective, my answer is, that my favorite DE for Linux (not only Fedora) is... Windows with WSL(g). I'm a huge Fedora fan, have installed it bare-metal, but use fedoraremix WSL distro almost exclusively. The problem with that solution is that it requires an absurdly huge amount of memory to work comfortably, so I admit, that it is not a good solution for any system with less than 32GB of RAM.

  • WinToast

    WinToast is a lightly library written in C++ which brings a complete integration of the modern toast notifications of Windows 8 & Windows 10.

    Project mention: I recently created a Prayer time Reminder Application for Desktop and would like to share it here | reddit.com/r/islam | 2022-06-10

    I don't really know C that well but have you tried this c++ library, seems like a solid option for using native notification. It also seems like some apps made using C are also using that library. There is also this article but it's c++. I hope that could help :D Good luck in developing your apps.

  • WindowsAppSDK-Samples

  • win32-darkmode

    Example application shows how to use undocumented dark mode API introduced in Windows 10 1809.

    Project mention: Wow, a truly non-biased Apple user! | reddit.com/r/windows | 2022-04-20

    Im quite stunned that there is no official way to enable dark mode (dark titlebar, etc) in 3rd party Win32 apps. Only hacky implementations are available, using undocumented APIs and a bit of reverse engineering of explorer.exe. https://github.com/ysc3839/win32-darkmode

  • taskmanager

  • explorerTool

    Custom Windows Explorer background image

    Project mention: This is a joke? we have icons for Paint in dark theme, but we don't have any option to activate a dark theme in Paint? Really? 🤨 The icons for Paint in dark theme on the left and in light theme on the right, as they can be found in the Paint installation folder. | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 2023-02-15

    About the folder background image, you can have a custom background image in each folder or a different background image for different folders. This can be done thanks to explorerTool In my case, I used the wave design that you can find at the bottom of Betterdiscord, and edited it to look good in my dark-themed file explorer.

  • AccentColorizer

    Recolorize Win32 controls in-memory with accent color without patching theme

    Project mention: Use accent color in glyphs like AccentColorizer-E11? | reddit.com/r/nilesoft | 2023-03-09

    I came here to see if the nilesoft dev might consider using windows accent color to color the glyphs in shell similar to AccentColorizer-E11 I realized that people who appreciate shell might also appreciate AccentColorizer too.
