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

Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.

meow: I have made a tutorial on how to get centered title text in windows 7! It’s in the visual styles section.
