Auto-arrange means - "from now on, always sort the items alphabetically". It is different from "Sort by Name" because that would only sort once and then append new items at the end.
It is a per-folder setting because you may want different folders to be arranged differently.

Can you provide a screenshot? It is important to see where the start menu is, where the taskbar is, where the start button is, etc.
Also note which taskbar is the main one and which is from DF

It may be an issue with the RTL version of the copy dialog box.
Try switching the language to English from the Classic Explorer settings. You will have to log off for the settings to change.
Then try copying a file again.

Look at the Administrative Settings section in the help. Basically you have to copy some registry values from HKCU\Software\IvoSoft\ClassicStartMenu into HKLM\Software\IvoSoft\ClassicStartMenu. Those settings will be forced on all users and can't be changed. How do you find the names of the values? ...

You can try a tool like Process Explorer, that can search for open handles to specific files. A likely suspect for keeping files locked is AV software. There are ways to disable Classic Shell, but they are different for each component. The easiest is to just uninstall it. Your settings will be prese...

The Sort by Name functionality is there, but there is more, because Classic Shell has more features. Are you trying to remove the extra menu item just because, or for some security concern?

That's how menus work. If you activate a menu with the mouse, there are no accelerators. If you start using the keyboard, the accelerators appear. Try it in Explorer. If you activate the File menu with the mouse you see Open. If you activate it with Alt+F, you see Open.

You have to enter it on the command line. Of course you have to be in the Classic Shell directory, where ClassicStartMenu.exe is. The start menu is not in that process. The start menu is in the explorer process. The ClassicStartMenu process is there to inject the start menu into explorer and to watc...

Can you compare these 4 methods of logging off?
Log off from the start menu
Log off by pressing Alt+F4 and selecting Sign off
Log off by pressing the user picture in the Metro screen
Log off by running "shutdown /l" from the command line

Let me know of they behave differently.
