Their change the file folder icon, they should move past the dumb behavior of having to refresh the screen after changing it, after changing it they should have it refresh automatically, shouldn't have to waste time manually refreshing, that's the point of changing it so don't double the work.

Strangely, in my 0.4.10 test in a Gen-1 VM (Hyper-V), running control sysdm.cpl brings up the system properties as expected, but then clicking around is useless. I can send a ctrl-alt-del to it and launch the task manager, but once there, no clicking is possible. I can move the mouse pointer, but can't click things.

If I open the Control Panel and choose System there, it's just fine. As someone used to using commands instead of mouse clicks to get to certain places, I find it more than a little annoying.

I've used the ReactOS boot disk to make sure the hardware inside the laptop is functioning.

This issue was finally fixed yesterday: Regression: it is not possible to delete any file or folder via the context menu. So that is good news. It was in the Wine code, some of which is used and synched with ReactOS.
The release versions like 0.4.10 were patched with a hackfix for this, but the daily builds did not get that treatment.

Could reactos dlls, exe, etc. be used as drop in replacements for windows xp/7 to slowing make windows open source piece meal?

What I do know is:
- Some ReactOS dlls are tested by the developers by using them inside Windows, preferably Windows Server 2003.
- I have read about some people experimenting with combining parts of ReactOS with Windows. One example is using the ReactOS GUI in MS Hyper-V server https://reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16533. But there are more examples in the forums there.

When experimenting with a frankensteined Windows/ReactOS, you cannot expect the usual devs to consider any bugs that appear. Some bugs may be interesting for improving the interfacing, others just a waste of time and effort.
