    Actions are limited to what's available on the toolbar & folder background context menu options.

    Keith is correct.

    The Open/SaveAs dialogs contan what Windows thinks you need in order to be able to select a file to Open/SaveAs.

    If there is another job that you want to do while those dialogs are open, you can right-click on the folder concerned and select Open in new window then do whatever the job is before returning to the Open/SaveAs dialog in ordre to Open/SaveAs a file.

    I think that, if there is a solution, it might be known by whoever makes "Classic shell explorer". So ask their support group / user forum.

    I don't believe it is practical to add a menu bar to the open file dialog.

    Dialog boxes usually don't have menu bars and including one would be contrary to Microsoft user interface guidelines. Other user interface options are generally preferred in such cases. You could probably add the menu bar to Explorer resources but it would do no good without the code to access it. And it isn't there.
