ANN: Classic Shell 2.9.3 is out - Now with Search!

Hi, everybody

I just released the new version 2.9.3 of Classic Shell. You can download it from here: Welcome to Classic Shell

The main new feature is the addition of a search box. You can search the contents of the start menu and the directories in your PATH environment variable.

There is also a new feature that lets you add a row of buttons (like for shutdown). See the attached image.

For a full list of changes visit the History page: Classic Shell: History

Please report any problems on the Source Forge bug tracker: SourceForge.net: Classic Shell: Bugs

Regards
Ivo

I downloaded the new version and although I installed it after uninstalling the previous version and having restarted the PC; I still do not have a SEARCH box in the start menus

I don't know what is so special about this. I like the windows 7 start menu, and if you really want to go skinny, buy or download aston menu 2!
And btw enabling the explorerbalk is easy to do yourself, as I recently learned

Since this is a "classic start menu", the search box is not enabled by default. You will have to go to the settings, open the Search Box tab, and enable it from there.
Note: If you have modified the menu structure you may be missing the search box item. Go to the Customize Start Menu tab, grab "Search Box" from the right side and drop it into the left side where you want the search box to appear.

Maybe I should take a look at that "aston menu 2". That's the first time I'm hearing about it.
I don't know what you mean by "explorerbalk" - sorry.

WOW Thanks IVO!
May you enjoy your life to the fullest. It is people like you that make life easier for the rest of us who have to put up with the Idiots at MS who think they know us better than we do ourselves.

Thanks again

How to Customize the Start Button right click context menu

Hello Ivo,
I am referring to this thread: How to Customize the Start Button right click context menu


Normally the right click context menu of the start button shows this two menu entries:
  • Properties
  • Open Windows Explorer
Your program "Classic Start Menu" replaces this context menu with:
  • ==Classic Start Menu==
  • Open
  • Open All Users
  • Settings
  • Help
  • Exit
I see that this context menu is configured in "StartMenuL10N.ini":
Code:
Menu.Open = &Open
Menu.OpenAll = O&pen All Users
Menu.MenuSettings = Settings
Menu.MenuHelp = Help
Menu.MenuExit = Exit
Is it possible to add personal menu entries to the context menu ?
Perhaps without using "Classic Start Menu" ?
