Shell is legit! It's clean, modern, and minimal

Gives a lot of customization potential, but requires some knowledge about how plain text configs work to actually do something interesting with it. Standard config is useful too, but apart of black theme and some on-fly setting changes has same features as one or two registry files you can find on internet to move some options from "Shift+right click" menu and add entry "take ownership"

I gained functions and lost functions in context depending on location clicked. For instance, seem to lose "Send To" functionality on desktop. Didn't do anything that I liked enough to keep, and required a reset of thinking as to where things were. Doesn't work in context menu while in a 3rd party explorer. What I suggest is that before you install, take some screenshots (win + "prnt screen" button, paste in Win Paint) and click a few items like desktop items, a file in explorer, etc, to be sure that you like the context options better after you install this program.
