You mean you want to restore a backup of settings from the XML. This can be done after Classic Shell is installed. ClassicStartMenu.exe is located in C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\.

So suppose your Menu settings.xml file is at C:\Temp, then use in your .cmd file use the full path:
"C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenu.exe" -xml "C:\Temp\Menu Settings.xml".

The Start Menu settings are applied immediately (except the cold settings which require a restart of the menu).

If you are restoring Classic Explorer settings, use ClassicExplorerSettings.exe instead of ClassicStartMenu.exe.

Hello, sorry to bring up the subject but what is the difference between Start Menu settings and Classic Explorer settings when saving in an .xml file?


It's both or not here?
