Classic Shell for your GUI memories


Recommended Posts

I'm so happy that I found the Classic Shell GUI utility thanks to AskVG. I was hating on some of the changes (Start Menu, though I like breadcrumbs I need the typeable folder path since I copy/paste there so often). Also includes:

+ may change parent folder structure instead of the history in the folder path drop-down

+ add back the "Up" button in Explorer

+ Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete Explorer buttons

+ skinnable Start Menu(s), including Glass support

+ Ctrl+Shift+Click in the start menu runs the program as administrator

+ middle mouse button can be used to open the start menu

+ free, open-source

+ actively developed

- seems to add an extra process; more CPU/memory usage

- may interfere with other GUI enhancements, but many of those bugs are worked out

2.0.0 was released yesterday; new beta due out in a few weeks/months it seems.

I'm still learning how to build my reduced 7 install, but I'll let you know later (or you can let us know) how it works out.
