%L doesn't do anything. Do you mean %1?
Before you use commands in Classic Shell, try them in a command prompt first so you can see if there are any error messages.
Also refer to the Classic Explorer -> Examples for Custom Commands section in the help.

%1 not working also. I found it with FileTypesMan x64. Looks like: "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /prefetch:8 /Play "%L" is working well from command bar and not from Classic Shell.

I don't know what to tell you then. I don't know what wmplayer expects on the command line. Maybe somebody else in this forum can come up with something.

Would be nice to have all buttons from command bar in Classic Shell when command bar would be useless. Do update

Hello,

first of all I am very happy with Classic Shell, but make it PERFECT still few things:

1. How to add 4px margin at the bottom? Please see picture I made.

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

2. How to make separator 1px and in the middle (3px from both sides)? Also see picture.

ANN: Classic Shell 2.9.3 is out - Now with Search!-spacing1.png

Here is zoom'ed separator so you can see clearly its 2 lines and would be nice single line.

Thanks

Classic Explorer uses the system toolbar and rebar controls. These controls have some built-in metrics. Maybe you can modify the Aero theme files to change those metrics (including the separator image). I don't know how to do it, sorry. Also beware that this will affect all other programs that use toolbars and rebars.

Thanks for the update.

Is it possible to run classic shell without the classic start menu? I just like having the tool bar buttons in explorer.

Thanks

Yes, quite possible. In the installer you choose which components you want to install.
If you've already installed the start menu, you can remove it in two ways:
1) Run the installer again in "change" mode, and unselect the start menu.
2) Remove ClassicSartMenu.exe from the Run registry key.

ANN: Classic Shell 3.1.0 - with title bar for IE9!

The latest version of Classic Shell 3.1.0 was just released. Grab it from the usual place: Welcome to Classic Shell

The main new feature is the introduction of the Classic IE9 component. It is a plugin for Internet Explorer 9 that adds the missing title bar and status bar info. You can edit the colors and the font of the title bar to match your custom theme.
