Replace Classic Shell with Open Shell

Classic Shell was discontinued last year: http://www.classicshell.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8147 However, it's developer released it's source code public and now it's forked by another developers as Open-Shell: https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu

I installed that app and it automatically replaced the old Classic Shell application on my pc and imported it's settings. :) So I think that you should consider it as the same app (which it practically is, it's just rebranded w/ some bug fixes).


Came here to request this! Definitely hope it meets criteria.


I was just going to request the same thing until I saw it already was. Classic Shell has always been a must have for me. I didn't even realize until today that it hasn't been developed since the end of 2017. But luckily some great people are continuing the software, rebranded as Open Shell, and it's pretty much the exact same thing but hopefully works better on newer versions of Windows 10.

Please, this needs to happen as Classic Shell refuses to re-configure itself on build 1809 of Windows 10 and probably will continue to do so on future revisions. Though, I don't know if Open Shell does the same thing at this point, at least development is continuing and will improve.




Was done on the latest update. Thank you!
