The presentation of the folder tree structure itself in Navigation pane cannot be modified by Classic Shell, only its behavior. However you can right click in an empty area of the navigation pane and uncheck "Show all folders" to make it a bit cleaner and less cluttered.

There is no single keystroke shortcut for duplicating an item in Explorer. You must use Ctrl+C, then Ctrl+V. At the most you can remap Ctrl+D using an AutoHotkey script to disable it, or make Ctrl+D send Ctrl+C plus Ctrl+V at once. Check out AutoHotkey freeware.

It's the button around which there is a red box in the picture above. Unfortunately, it only works if a single item is selected. It doesn't work for multiple files.

But if you use StExBar, it has a button that works for multiple files and adds double quotes too for long paths.

Are you talking about the folder pane of Explorer or the files pane? Which view of Explorer are you using?
