Well, it's almost all in the subject, although entries are truncated for some reason...Anyway, I installed Classic Shell and Classic Explorer In Windows 10 - Explorer looks the same as before though:



What gives? Does it take some additional setting to be tweaked for Classic Explorer to appear or what? Perhaps I need to donate more money for this to happen? :D

Thank you.

Oh, this is so amateurish and complicated and a waste of my time. Forget it. You know very well what to do yet would have me read confused 'instructions'? Yeah, right. In your dreams, bud.
Having root canal dentistry w/o anestethics would be painless compared to this rigmarole.

It looks like you have a misconception about what Classic Explorer is. The links I provided are supposed to explain its scope and features. Not to give you instructions how to use it.
If the software doesn't meet your needs, then I suggest you look for some other product. And another dentist maybe.

@Kokopelli, Classic Explorer is a plugin for Windows Explorer that restores some missing functionality Microsoft took out. It has to play nice by Microsoft's rules and use their APIs to plug into it and restore whatever features are possible. If Windows decides that certain add-ons need to be explicitly enabled by the user, it's not right for the addon to force enable itself.

With the kind of attitude you have, it's hard to know what you expected from "Classic Explorer". The whole Explorer rewritten from scratch replacing the Windows Explorer? That's a job for a huge team of developers, not a single developer, giving away his professional-grade work for free. :)
