    I have always used the Nightly builds. If you take a close look at them , you will find not too many differences if any at all. From what I have been reading about Win 10 21H2--Open shell will probably not work as MS is re doing the entire GUI.

    I have always problems with updates of this software , as usuall have to totally uninstall first , then updating .
    Fortunately made a backup first , before trying to update from 160 to 163 .............tried first to install over the previous , went fine , untill my uninstallers noticed two Open-Shell programs are installed , so tried to uninstall the oldest ( 160) , after it could not reboot , black screen ........
    So , had to use my backup and all fine again , on the 160.........
    Wonder , why(???) its so hard to update Open-Shell............

    btw; we may expect a new stable (!) version , if latest stable 160, does not function properly in 21H1 ...........

    I can't get either Open or Classic Shell to open their menus using mouse hover in Windows 11. Otherwise they work.

    I can't get The Windows Start to open on Hover? But you are right about CS- OS

    Hi there,
    I would like to create a shortcut button in the Classic Explorer toolbar for: 'open with …'
    So after I e.g. selected an image file in the panel, I can have an 'open with Photoshop' button there.
    A web search for this gave me no results, so I suspect it can't be done?

    You'll need to define custom commands to run a program or script.

    Classic Shell / Discussion / Help: HOWTO: Customize the toolbar
    The command can also be an executable string. You can use environment variables, or the paramters %1 and %2. %1 is the current path, %2 is the name of the selected file. For example:
    %windir%\notepad.exe %2 - this will open the selected file in notepad. %windir% will be replaced with the windir environment variable. %2 is the selected file

    Brilliant. Thanks!
    I don't actually understand the exact working and function of the % (percentage) signs, but indeed doing:
    %C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021%\photoshop.exe %2
    seems to work great.
    Thanks again!
