Windows 7: ANN: Classic Shell - start menu and other features

Well, you need to change how Delete.vbs works. Instead of getting the name of the selected file it now gets the name of a text file with the list of selecte files. It has to read that file, parse each line, and delete each one. Then delete the text file.

Look at the help for examples.

I dont have programing skills, so probably not much I can do here by my self

Interesting just why it works with %1 from context menu wscript @="wscript G:\\....\\Delete.vbs \"%1\" " but dont from Classic Shell wscript.exe G:\...\Delete.vbs "%1" Basically command is the same...

Probably because the context menu runs Delete.vbs separately for each selected file. Classic Shell doesn't. It only runs Delete.vbs once and gives it a list of files.
Since you don't know how to modify Delete.vbs, why not just hold down Shift when pressing the Delete button?

Because I would do it without touching keyboard, just single click with mouse. Why you have created Classic Shell > Classic Explorer? Its possible to do with keyboard all commands and without it, but with Classic Explorer its much easier. To do more, by clicking-typing less. Thats the way!

Well, some coding is required, either in VBS or BAT. You can start from example #3 in the help. Replace the copy command with delete and you'll get what you need.

I mean in the Help file - you can find it in Programs -> Classic Shell, or by clicking on the Help link in the Settings dialog. Doesn't nobody RTFM anymore?

.bat - G:\....\DeleteOK.bat "%3"
.vbs - wscript.exe G:\....\DeleteOK.vbs "%3"

hm, ok.
First, it's not "delete", but just "del". That's my mistake.
Second, you should do:
for /F "delims=" %%i in (%1) do del "%%i"
del "%1"

And third, I don't understand what your last two lines mean. You should put the above text into DeleteOK.bat, and call it from your custom button with G:\....\DeleteOK.bat "%3"
There is no VBS involved at all.
