Change what settings in the registry? I'm not seeing where in the registry Classic Shell stores what XML it's using. To be clear, I want to be able to switch Classic Start Menu Configuration XMLs entirely through command line, so I can use task scheduler to change the Windows Theme and the Classic S...

How do I add padding? And if this doesn't work, and I decide to split into two icons instead, how can I remove the gap between them? And how do I make it un-clickable?

I just found out there's a way to automatically change themes in task scheduler with command line. Is there a way to tell Classic Shell to change xmls through command line, or some other way that would work with task scheduler so that it would change them both at once?

Oh, and while I'm at it, how can I make an icon not be square? I want to add a "button" to the toolbar that does nothing, but just shows the Windows Classic logo, like 98's explorer has. But, I need an icon to do that, and as far as I know, there's no way to make an icon be wider than it i...

You haven't attached it to the forum, and I'm afraid I can't figure it out with that little information. I need to know the command to use to make it create a shortcut to the selected item in explorer, and place it in %USERPROFILE%\Links\Links Toolbar.

Yeah, what I need help with is setting up the command to store the shortcut there. Do you know what command to use?

So I'm setting up Windows 7 to have a links toolbar, akin to Windows 98/XP. I have a button set up to not have an icon, and to have a drop-down menu that's a shortcut to where I'm going to hold the links. How can I add a button within the toolbar that adds the current folder to the toolbar? none of ...

"Ah, right. You are talking about the Windows 7's own start button: http://www.classicshell.net/faq/#menu_button There are no plans to make the button change states. If you want custom behavior you need to create a custom button." So since Windows 7's start button doesn't have the active ...

The font in the Classic Start Button option in Classic shell doesn't change with the theme the way the Windows 7 classic start button does. Is the next version of Classic Shell going to do that? And when I use Windows' Classic Button so that the text will change, the button doesn't have an active st...

Can you extract the Image from it and save it as an icon so I can use it as the "Classic Button" and have the color change with the theme and stuff?

I've been using The 64-bit version of Windows XP in a virtual machine for awhile now, and I find it faster and more usable than Windows 7 (even running in a virtual machine!). I almost want to make it my primary OS. But I have a modern computer that doesn't have Windows XP drivers designed for it. W...

I liked the Sidebar in Windows XP that had the common tasks and folders grouped there. Yes, I know Classic Explorer can do most of the things it can, but it's much more visually appealing and useable than either Classic Explorer's toolbar or Windows 7's. Can you add this to the future features list?

I really liked the filmstrip view in Windows XP and it's gone in 7. (No the preview pane doesn't count.) Since Classic Shell already integrates with explorer, it seems a good fit to bring back filmstrip in the view options.

I'm not afraid of it! ;) I tried it, but couldn't tell what I was looking at and didn't have the time to fool with it. And then I thought, hey, why do the work when someone else already has? :P So there you go--good old fashioned American laziness.

If you've done it, would you mind uploading the finished product here? I'm afraid that process is a bit too nerdy for me, but I'd love it to be more XPish.

I'd like a Classic Taskbar part of this suite. It should be able to skin the Taskbar the way it skins the the start menu: Make it look more like older version of Windows. I don't like like the way Windows 7 combines the Quick Launch that opens the programs with the program when it's open. I'd also l...
