    I will look into it when I have time, but for now simply toggle the "taskbar transparency" setting.

    Shift+click Stopped Working

    I don't mean to post duplicate threads, but I am a newbie to this Board and didn't notice this section before I posted in General Support.

    For some unknown reason, after cancelling the start of an App on the Windows Start Screen, the Shift+click function in Classic Shell has stopped working. I am running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I had Shift+click set to Windows Start Screen. If I now change that setting, nothing happens, i.e Shift+click still does not respond. I have run Classic Shell Repair to no avail. I don't want to uninstall/reinstall Classic Shell because of the considerable time I have spent organizing my program folders.

    Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

    Does restarting fix the problem? Does Shift+Win work?

    I have run Classic Shell Repair again and this time it corrected the problem. I ran Ace Utilities Registry Cleaner before trying Repair again, and this might have had something to do with it.

    In any case, thank you for your assistance. Classic Shell has really made converting to Windows 8 so much easier, particularly having come from XP.
