Can you make windows 8 and 8.1 have an option to have the classic/non-metro open with dialog in classic explorer? If you want to totally ignore metro, that doesn't really help, and it feels kind of out of place if you use a custom theme. This kind of thing should be possible, since you replaced the copy dialog. On windows 8/8.1 the 'open with' was replaced with a metro popup thing (use windows 8 or 8.1 ever and you'll understand), and it isn't a window. This is the last bit of metro left on the desktop when using classic start, and it would be nice if you could replace it.

Ookaaaayy... good to know. My point was that those kinds of things can be, and have been, replaced by classic shell.

The program 'OpenWith Enhanced' already does it: http://extensions.frieger.com/owdesc.php . In fact the Metro floating shit is the biggest UI abomination I have ever seen in Windows. Every Windows 8/8.1 user needs to install OpenWith Enhanced RIGHT NOW!!! :D

+1

In case someone doesn't know what he is talking about:

This is what the new "Open with..." dialog looks like in Windows 8(.1):

It would be much appreciated if Classic Shell could bring back the classic "Open with..." dialog.
