Retrieves the value associated with the specified name, in the specified registry key. If the name is not found in the specified key, returns a default value that you provide, or null if the specified key does not exist.
And if that value is used in a check it throws a NullReferenceException. Fixed in b7 (uploading this evening)
Unfortunately, no. This was previously fixable by a editing a registry entry but Microsoft hardcoded immersive menus into Windows Explorer so we're out of luck unless Microsoft re-adds this as an option which is unlikely
There's an old thread on Sevenforums where someone mentions a version of AVG from 2009 can bug out the context menus and it'll result in the old ones to show. I hunted down that exact version and tried it on W10 1903 just incase, and ofc, no dice.
In short; it's placebo. It might work on your setup and that's fine, but unless someone else can follow what you did and get the exact same results, then count it as a fluke. This is the only real chance at a fix as of now: github.com/rikka0w0/ExplorerContextMenuTweaker

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics Consider please also installing Folder Options X. It will make the appearance of the folders much more classic. A reg file with the settings is attached
Made the "here" link more obvious. Thank you for your great tutorial anyways, it was really helpful!
BTW, since I haven't made a version in a while, here's the current status:
Stuff planned for v9:
--> Refactor code Compile as x64 Add a logo to the app (Would love to see suggestions/inspiration on that)
Yes, I'm still refactoring code. It just takes a lot of time to do this because my code was a complete mess but when you start cleaning up some things, stuff is bound to be broken. Fixing all of that makes a whole new mess so it's kinda frustrating. But the code for the GUI has been cleaned up now so I only have the main executable code to clean up which shouldn't take that long. As for the compiling as x64, it's literally just a checkbox in Visual Studio. I expect this all to be done at the end of this week.
TL;DR: Still refactoring code for v9, will be done at the end of the week

soapmusic27: I have made us a Discord channel: discord.gg/9jtudv Also created a thread about it. I never knew what the Win10 2004 searchbar issue was until just now. For some reason, I am running 2004 with classic theme and the searchbar is unaffected

Splitwirez: Apparently the Windows XP source code has leaked. Keep your distance, folks.
Sept 25, 2020 0:41:12 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Splitwirez It was? Which Service Pack? To all people, don't use it for making Windows more Classic. Edit: It's SP1 I can tell, and any Windows NT OS older than XP was also leaked. Edit 2: Bits of Windows 10 source code have also been leaked.

Hayafumi: Well i'm even more scared when 7's will get spilled out on the internet.
Sept 25, 2020 5:38:56 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi Oh no, not 7 or Vista. At least people can find a way to get Windows 10 drivers on 7 and still supply security updates, but still it's going to be illegal.
Sept 25, 2020 5:41:12 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Ah, well I will probably switch to 10 and setup Classic Theme or go to Linux pretty soon.
Sept 25, 2020 5:45:12 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi That's not even all of it, Windows CE 3-7, Server 2003, and MS-DOS 3.30 and 6, as well as original Xbox source code have been leaked as well. Bits of Xbox one source code have also been leaked.
Sept 25, 2020 6:22:35 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Oh lord, this is the gigaleak like Nintendo but not really.
Sept 25, 2020 6:25:31 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi I also saw a tiny bit of Windows 7 source code once too, but it's a tiny bit and not that important, from 2010. Can't tell if it's real or not.
Sept 25, 2020 6:26:55 GMT -8
Hayafumi: There goes another partition on my drive, gonna install either LTSC or LTSB on it.
Sept 25, 2020 13:58:39 GMT -8
ihatemetro: Hayafumi LTSB 2016 is recommended, it supports Classic Theme and has longer support than LTSB 2015.
Sept 25, 2020 14:14:20 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Is kinda of a struggle for me to make Pre-1803 because I can't get everything to start up, but i'll try again.
Sept 25, 2020 15:17:48 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Once again, i'm really new on Classic Theme +8
Sept 25, 2020 15:18:04 GMT -8
Hayafumi: Also, is a struggle finding LTSB 2016.
Sept 25, 2020 19:55:42 GMT -8
Hayafumi: I'm just going with 8.1.
