Thank you very much for the link handy!
Personally, I refuse to use any program to perform a neat-o trick that I can do manually unless I write that program myself. I’m bizarre that way, I know.
To keep things rolling, I present yet another Stupid Computer Trick:
Win95 to Win3.1
This trick merely changes the shell from Explorer.exe to Progman.exe, the shell that Win3.1 used. There’s no real point to it, unless you truly prefer the Win3.1 interface or are nostalgic. This is the trick I got suspended from high school (for a day) for performing, because they thought I’d actually uninstalled Win95 and returned the machine to 3.1 or something.
- Click on Start, then select Run. Type in “sysedit” and press Enter.
- Of the windows that show up in the main System Configuration Editor window, click on System.INI to bring it to the foreground.
- Find the line that reads “shell=Explorer.exe”. It should be right near the top.
- Edit the line to read “shell=progman.exe”. It’s that simple. Save the file, of course. You can easily edit the system.ini file in notepad or another text editor, if you prefer.
- Restart Windows and it will look like Win3.1 instead of the Win95 desktop. To undo this, just open the System.ini file and edit it so that the line reads “shell=Explorer.exe” again.
