Microsoft Blocks Classic Shell in Windows 10 Build 9879
Windows 8 was the first modern Windows version to come without a Start menu, a change which not only confused many Windows 7 users planning to upgrade, but that also affected adoption of Microsoft's new product.
What also happened was a rapid growth of the third-party software market for alternative Start menu solutions and many developers out there tried to make the most of this problem to attract more users with their apps.
The best example in this case is Classic Shell
, one of the top Start menu apps out there which recorded millions of downloads in the last few years, but especially after the launch of Windows 8.
With Windows 10, however, everybodyís wondering whether Microsoft still plans to allow third-party Start menu apps on its desktop operating system or block them all, as the revamped desktop comes with new features that also include a modern Start menu.
