I did re-enable new Windows 11 File explorer at How to get Windows 10 Explorer & Context Menu back in Windows 11 still not working


There are two or three Winaero tweaks, that don't work on Windows 11.
They are near the top. I believe that disabling classic Taskbar is one of them.

I would suggest you just undo the last tweak you did in Winaero tweaker.




This is a screenshot of the Win 10 tweaks in Winaero. If you stick to only these on Win 11, you should be OK.

All I remeber for a fact, was that one of those "Win 11 tweaks in Winaero, broke something. START button I think.
I had to restore from a backup, to fix. But we're talking 2-3 months ago, so I can't be sure. :/

Maybe you should read the "How this tweak works", and then check the registry, to make sure the tweak, undid itself?

Wait!
Do step #3 to step #8, here...



That will give you the Windows 11 File Explorer... back.
