  • serenity

    The Serenity Operating System 🐞

  • SerenityOS replicates that look and feel. It is also implemented in a dialect of C++ that adheres to some of the good parts of C++98: https://serenityos.org

  • winfile

    Original Windows File Manager (winfile) with enhancements

  • Ask and ye shall receive: https://github.com/Microsoft/winfile

    File Manager, or winfile.exe, was the predecessor to Explorer's file management aspects. You can use it on Windows 10 and 11 (and all the others) if you want to.

    Program Manager, or progman.exe, was the predecessor shell to Explorer. It was included with Windows through Windows XP SP1 before finally being stubbed in SP2. You can probably grab the binary from XP SP1 and run it in newer Windows versions, though.

  • old-new-win32api

    Organized bookmarks to Win32API posts of Raymond Chen's blog "The Old New Thing".

  • Do you have any recommendations?

    I assume this is the one you’re talking about https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/

    I was curious, went to the end (page 699!) and it’s pretty interesting. But obviously it’s hard to find the important ones.

  • Open-Shell-Menu

    Classic Shell Reborn.
