    Classic Shell no longer works on latest insider build. Any workarounds


    Title of thread says it all. Classic shell no longer works on 14332. Also tried another alternative to see if that works. No luck. Any workarounds for this?

    You having trouble installing it, or it just acts weird after installed? I have it running on 14332.

    An alternative will be Start10.
    It works. See screenshot at the end.
    The downside is....... you have a 30 days trial. After that it will cost your $4.99 one time purchase.

    Maybe I will restart my desktop and try again. It's running on my laptop.
    I just keep getting the error message that this program is not compatible with this version of Win 10

    Hi there
    While I liked these sort of programs on Win 8 / 8.1 you really don't need them any more.

    What's wrong with W10 Start menu -- also if you don't like the Tiles just delete them.

    Cheers
