    No. Classic Shell only gives you a Start Menu replacement. It doesn't affect the way File Explorer works. If you hover over a file or folder in Windows 8.1's File Explorer, a tooltip box appears to display information about the file or folder, and that is all.

    I forgot about the other parts of Classic Shell since I don't care about them, and didn't install them.

    ..and since you already have been using it for 4 years, WTH are you bothering to ask about it? Just download the update, install it and see for yourself.

    Installing Classic Explorer from Classic Shell 4.0.4 doesn't restore the functionality shown in your screen shot. File Explorer's Window is still divided into two panes, still includes the Ribbon Interface, and the information that you want to see is only displayed on the Task Bar if you click on a folder in File Explorer's left pane.
