    I don't know try:

    Open-Shell (Formerly Classic-Start)-settings-open-shell-1.jpg

    Open-Shell (Formerly Classic-Start)-settings-open-shell-2.jpg

    Or uninstall it, reboot, reinstall and make sure that you don't install the extra optional components.

    I install no other components other than the Start Menu Shell and it loads instantly even on the latest Windows 10 Build 2004/2009

    Same with me. I only and always only used the start menu shell.

    Uninstalled completely and installed again , booting with OpenShell immediately !
    I used to install over previous , after every update ...........better to clean install after some updates , in future !

    Yes, it's never a good idea to just install over the top.

    Installing over top especially if the previous is still running runs a risk some .dll will not get updated, or other weird stuff. That could easily cause the stutter of starting in MS menu then in OS. I always exit OS, install the new one, and fire up the new.

    That's indeed a good way to do it. Some programs (not necessarily the Open Shell thing) may require a second boot.
    - uninstall/remove the normal way
    - boot computer
    - manually remove remaining stuff - keep in mind that sometimes some hardcore apps still try to start, even if you removed part of it
    - make sure all is removed
    - boot again
    - perform a clean install

    I still use Classic Shell. Does Open Shell have a particular advantage these days?
    I wondered the same, but the big problem is that MS at some point will be aware of this application, and then the will try to work against it, because they don't like apps that work differently than the current scope of ideas (which at this moment is the pushing of touch screens, "apps" based programs, and other crap like that).

    So, if they do something to make the Classic Shell no longer work, there will be nobody to fix it. Or not officially.

    MS has been aware of Classic Shell and Open Shell since their inception. It is illegal for MS to purposely modify their code to cripple any particular 3rd party app. General code modifications by MS across the board to enhance or fix Windows is another story. That is not illegal.

    As far as keeping Open Shell up to date with fixes and enhancements, the OS team at Github is and has been doing that all along.
