    Classic Shell on Win 10 - Twice the Fun!

    Okay, I am not really attracted to the new Start Menu. So, I went ahead and installed the latest Classic Shell for Win 8. I didn't lose anything. It actually got better.
    Enjoy the short video.

    I use Classic shell on my other PC's on 7 and 8 and even Vista. But to be fair I wanted to use the trial as it is for now. But a machine I upgraded from 7 to 10 with an inplace upgrade classic shell reconfigured itself and worked just fine before I uninstalled it.

    Sorry, but I really like the Start Screen. . .tried the new menu, albeit just not my cup of tea.

    Sorry, but I like new start menu so. I'd like to see a way to toggle to the tiles apps view Windows 8.1 style WITHOUT signing out.

    I am a Start8 user on 8.1 and wonder if Star Dock will have any offerings for Windows 10?

    If it wasn't for Classic Shell I wouldn't be using 8,8.1,8.11 or 10.

    To get instant access to all my apps/programs (and only my own apps) , I moved all my app shortcuts to a folder (I named "Programs") and pinned that folder to the start menu (using Classic Shell).

    This is $5.00, but maybe y'all would be interested in it.

    Start10, the first Windows 10 Start menu alternative!
