    Win8 File Explorer defaulted Back to 'normal'

    I have been running Win8's Explorer (file) using Classic Shell to retain the Win7 classic look and feel
    of Win7. For unbenowst reasons today the Explorer no longer appars as the old Win7 version, but instead
    has reverted back (up to?) the Win8 version (which I dislike) for a totally unknown reason.I reinstalled
    the latest version of Classic Shell with no change occurring. What I cannot to work correctly is the
    tree view (the with right pointing drop down arrows) drop downs displaying, and there does not seem
    to be an option to enable/disable the tree view.

    I am very open to suggestions.
