    but I see control panel results rather than ones from Settings

    e.g. no results for Personalisation, lock screen....

    For anyone running Classic Shell/Open Shell on 19H1, can you please confirm if new Settings app pages are also searched? Last time I tried Windows 10, it was broken but I use 8.1, not 10. Only Control Panel was being searched but something may have broken on my system so I wasn't sure if Settings search in Classic Start menu was broken.
    If you are asking if the Search Box entry will pick up Settings links, the answer is yes. On Insider, 19h1, tried both CS and OS. Results....

    - do you find the results under 'Settings' are actually CP applets?

    I tried Open Shell on my dual monitor 1809 system and it would not produce the classic start menu on monitor #2 (it just had the native win10 start menu), so I went back to classic shell which works fine. Anybody have the classic start menu on two monitors using the new Open Shell?

    Sorry, away for a bit. Went right to the Settings page from the CS/OS link, not CP.

    Ah, just noticed, you have a section in results for 'Modern Settings' - which I've never seen.. hmm, maybe there's an option as well as the search option? (Open Shell 4.4.131)

    Oh ok I see Modern Settings in this screenshot so they are being searched. Hopefully they open correctly too when launched :) I am still on 8.1.



    I wish Ivo would revive this once great project now that Windows 10 is far more tolerable than it was a few years ago. Or develop and support it just for LTSC/LTSB releases with the rest officially "unsupported".

    Classic Shell 4.3.1 works great for me on 1903.

    Apparently Modern Settings is missing if %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\ is empty - as it is on both my PCs.

    Classic Shell uses the indexing service to find the settings. The folder with the settings is %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US
    See if it is enabled for indexing.
    A fix is to copy the content of that folder from another PC where this works (which I don't have).

    Someone found a long-winded fix involving uninstalling and reinstalling Cortana and more...

    It is working just fine for me as posted. Now I do not use the explorer only the menu. I had no need to use this in Win 7. I started using it on the first insider build I was on which I believe was 9926.
