I'm still finding odd bugs with Classic Shell on windowsn 8.1 home prem x64.
One that is consistent is, in its default settings, accesses to folders in Windows Explorer have an unusual delay before the contents of the folder are apparent. I notice this particularly accessing the Downloads Folder when Windows Explorer is not already up/running.
Perhaps I should just turn off all features related to Windows Explorer? [I know of nothing I need CS to do there...]
I also have noticed some random event/s will defeat Classic Shell and I cannot track/correlate this with anything in the Windows Event log. Few times I've had it just "not be there" - not alive, and instead I will be looking at the default 8.1 desktop settings. After a reboot, CS will be coherent again.
At How to Disable Aero Glass Transparency in Windows 8 Taskbar? - AskVG it is clained that the latest edition of Classic Shell has an option to make the Taskbar opaque in Windows 8.1.

I use Classic Shell and always keep it updated. However the option checked in the image above is missing from my Classic Menu application. Just to make sure that I had the latest version, I re-downloaded the latest version (4.0.6) and reinstalled but no dice.
Can anyone please help?
