I tried to add the My Computer into the menu but it's just not working. Here is my StartMenuItems.ini


; MAIN_MENU.Items - the structure of the main menu. You can add or remove items here
MAIN_MENU.Items=COLUMN_PADDING, PROGRAMS, COLUMN_BREAK, FAVORITES, DOCUMENTS, SettingsMenu, SearchMenu, HelpItem, RunItem, SEPARATOR, LogOffItem, UndockItem, MyComputerItem, DisconnectItem, ShutdownItem

;MyComputerItem.Link=::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
MyComputerItem.Command=::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
MyComputerItem.Name=$Menu.MyComputer
MyComputerItem.Icon=shell32.dll,8

I tried both the link and the command and they didn't work. Is there a way to have My Computer in startup?

Sorry for the late reply. I was out of town.
Starting with version 2.8.1 you will have to edit one more setting:
Code:
 
EnableCustomMenu=1

I've only just noticed that my r-click Classic Explorer Bar is greyed out and I can't select it. I can however, access the Explorer Bar settings through the Start Menu shortcut.
I only went to access it because my Explorer Window Titlebar and icon had disappeared. So I un-installed, cleaned up, re-booted and re-installed. The titlebar tweaks returned
(and my settings) but the Explorer Bar option is still greyed out.
Am I missing something simple here?

EDIT Using version 2.8.3

Most likely the shell extension is disabled. Try the instructions here: Classic Shell: FAQ

Another thing is that I cannot right click Computer
The icon is there and the link works but can't right click it.

MyComputerItem.Command=::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
MyComputerItem.Name=Computer
MyComputerItem.Icon=shell32.dll,16

Well, command items don't have right-click menus. Instead of .Commmand try .Link=::{.... Then the start menu will understand that you want to create a link to a folder, and you will get the folder's context menu when you right-click.
