Windows 7: Classic Shell is looking for testers once again

Item Names for Buttons on Classic Explorer Bar

The names like Settings, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Properties, etc.

They are not showing up underneath the icons, nor on the side when I check the box for "Text is on the Side" under Toolbar Settings.

The text for the buttons is not provided by default. You have to enter it yourself. Double-click on each button in the Toolbar Buttons tab and enter something for the Label.

Thanks very much. This may sound silly since there is no reason you have to do all the work for the user, but it might pay to have a default label for the buttons.

Congratulations on all of your efforts to continuously improve an already great program, and to always respond so courteously to everyone's inquiries.

No, that's not possible.

If the label is there it will show in the toolbar. I want the default toolbar to have no text, so it can't have labels by default.

The old version of Classic Shell technically shipped with 2 preset toolbars - one default, and one customizable that you can enable from the ini file. The customizable one had text and the default didn't. The text was just an example for you to understand the format of the ini file. It wasn't supposed to be used as is, particularly because it wasn't localized.

In the new system there is no place for 2 toolbars. It is a tradeoff - I had to sacrifice some of the flexibility that the ini files had for more accessible Settings UI.

Sorry, I don't get to this section of the forums very often, Ivo, so I just noticed the other day you had an update for Classic Shell (2.9.0).

I Love it!

Awesome job on the GUI. I had fun going through the myriad settings and playing around a bit. Very, very stable. I played with the ini files prior but the new GUI, of course, is much more intuitive with most changes occurring immediately.

Thanks, Ivo! Keep up the good work!

Should I be trusted with Classic Shell?
I don't have it yet but if I understand what I read it sounds like it makes my PC look more like XP. I really need to organize to get ready for a back up but find Win 7 confusing & thought maybe if things looked like xp that I could find stuff better. ???
