Thought I'd mention first that I just donated $20, so I hope it helps and encourages others to do the same. I've benefited from Classic Shell over the years and for some stupid reason I don't think I ever donated.

Anyway, I'm old-school and remember the very useful ability to CTRL-click the parent button on Windows Explorer window and it would pop up a new window that was the parent of the current drive/folder. I've done some searching in the settings (with the cool text search), as well as doing some forum searching and can't find anything related to this.

Is this something I can do? If so, any help would greatly be appreciated. It's driving me crazy. :|

I should also mention I'm talking about on Windows 10. For some reason on my Windows 7, the CTRL click on parent does open a new window. So I'm not sure if I found that option before and can't find it now or if Classic Shell works different Windows 7 vs 10.

On Windows 7, the Up button is added to Explorer by Classic Explorer. On Windows 8/8.1/10, Microsoft added it back themselves but forgot the Ctrl+click function.

So simply add the Up button to your Explorer toolbar and use it instead. Click+clicking it should open the parent folder in a new window. Ignore the Up button in the address bar.
