Longesthorn - Classic Shell is no longer being supported - it is now being developted as Open Shell. Doubt if you find any support in this site at this present time - kind of in-between, unless some helpful user can reply if help is available.

Classic Shell is no longer being maintained - afraid you are out of luck and will have to look elsewhere if yours doesn't work. See this thread:

juniper, I believe this is happening to people not using Classic Shell - see https://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-ne ... -a-69.html (Pages 69 & 70)

It appears this is due to Windows 10 Update - not just Classic Shell users.

Thanks for your response and your efforts - that deserves a donation, Ivo! :)

Note: for others wondering about this - I received a reply from a member of Windows 8 Forums who has already installed 8.1.1 and Classic Shell works just fine with the update - so, no worry either way.

Will the update (8.1.1) coming in April be handled the same way that 8.1 was handled? I am hoping Classic Shell will work after the update, as I have become dependent on it - it's just considered a part of Windows to me. Appreciate any input to relieve my mind. Thanks.
