    Classic Context Menu not possible in 1809 ?

    Brink , you always helped us in the past with all kind of tweaks etc.
    Now, after upgrade to 1809 , we can not get the mouse-selected items in the context-menu in blue , we can not use the "Immersive ContextMenu=0 " key in ; HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\FlightedFeatures .
    It used to work in 1803 , but this key does not change a thing anymore in 1809 !
    I wonder if a clean install will fix it , or is this option no longer supported in 1809 , if so then a clean install wont help us either and we have to search for a new solution.
    Will you,please, have a look at the problem , we hope you have a solution , like so many times you helped us !

    Hi, found this:
    - confirms what you observe...

    (includes typo:
    Versions prior to Windows 10 1809 allowed to disable
    = allowed users to)

    Thanks , dalchina , I thought so already !
    A clean install does not do the trick , its mr.MS who destroyed our good looking context menu !
    Now we have to get used to this ugly and discusting grey menu , "thanks" to mr.MS
    We all do hope a working new solution will come soon...............

    I can confirm it no longer works for Desktop/Directories.

    You can get it to work for Taskbar by way of dll injection, Disable Dark Taskbar Menu, but you need to run the .bat every time Explorer starts or restarts, and it's still inconsistent as heck!!!

    Looks good !
    Must be possible to make a scheduled task of this bat-file , which will work after every reboot !
    Will ask Superfly , he is an expert in these things..........

    Just tested , works indeed , only on the taskbarmenu not on other contextmenus.......
    Have to run the bat-file after every reboot , unless we can make a scheduled task of it !

    Edwin, which version of the context menu is that?
    It would be handy to have a comparison of the two - or is it 3 or even 4 with the dark theme?

    I put a shortcut of the .bat file in my Startup Folder.

    The dark one with the ugly white border around it is the default one that you can't change!

    The white one is the tweaked version for Taskbar,

    and, the nice grey one is, oddly enough, the tweaked version after disabling QTTabBar Desktop Toolbar and restarting Explorer.

    Thanks. At least vertical spacing doesn't seem excessive- I read items were more widely spaced, although the one on the right seems more widely spaced.

    I think the problem lies with the alternative Explorer shell, perhaps the Dark Explorer thing...

    ... even fully themed and menu fonts and sizes tweaked, the Desktop/Directory menus still won't take...
