    Transfer Classic Shell Settings


    I have Classic Shell set up on one of my W8 machines and am about to do the same on another. Is there anyway I can transfer Classic Shell's settings from the first machine to the second?

    Thank you.

    You can use the Backup button in the settings to export them to XML file. Then import on the second machine.

    LOL. I never noticed that in settings. I just backed up from the registry.
