    If it wasn't for Start8 I would never have used 8 or 8.1
    I feel the same about Classic Shell, And will probably continue using it in Win 10 once I upgrade

    For any Tech trying to assist someone with 8, 8.1 or 10, the Classic Shell is a gift from Above.
    It has so many features for customizing how Windows looks and runs, that it can emulate any OS from XP on up.

    Running on Windows 10, Classic shell can be shut off by a simple Right click on the Start button and then a click on "Exit".
    That allows full access to all the Windows 10 settings, like setting default apps, etc. For some setting in Win-10, you must be able to access the "Settings" app.

    Many things that we used to do from the RUN box, (not present in Windows 10) can still be done, but somewhat differently.
    To be able to RUN an app like "MSCONFIG" I just use the Ctrl+Alt+Del combination, sometimes called the three finger salute.
    That brings up a small menu where I can select the "Task Manager". Then in Task Manager, click "More Details" in the lower left corner of the window.
    Then click on "File" (upper left) and "Run New Task" and VOILA!, there's our old favorite RUN box.
    Once I found it, I've used it a lot, while setting up Windows 10.

    Cheers mates, and Happy Computing!

    Why don't you use the shortcut <Winkey>-r, that's much faster.

    In addtition to Rudy & Mike above. If you use the Run command often then create a shortcut for Run command using:
    C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{2559a1f3-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}
    Put it on taskbar/start menu or right click context menu

    It would be like GM s1ending out a new Camaro without a key and starter holleing it's beta.. Damn don't GM have someone with a arm?? MS should have sent a blue screen for win 10 beta and tell us to send feed back,WTF.

    (snerk) I like it, but if GM sent me a Camaro without a key and a starter (for free, since I signed up for the early release), hey, I'll wait for an aftermarket starter and I'm not afraid to try to hotwire the thing after that
