I absolutely love Classic Shell. As a long-time XP user, I am adept at quickly moving through folders with keyboard shortcuts and the arrow keys, and Classic Shell has allowed me to continue that ability in Windows 7. Unfortunately, when performing attachment operations in Outlook 2010 (saving attachments to disk, attaching new files to e-mails, etc.), Outlook seems to be still calling the native Windows 7 explorer. Is there any way to either make it call Classic Shell instead, or maybe even replace the native windows explorer all together?

As a side note, I really don't know what M$ was thinking when they ruined the native explorer built-in to XP. What used to take 3 seconds of keyboard manipulation to move through 10 or so folder hierarchies, now takes a good 20 seconds and a bunch of mouse clicks. My carpal tunnel syndrome hates M$.
