Classic Shell Overview
Classic Shell allows you to restore a set of features (such as the classic Start menu and toolbar for Windows Explorer) that were removed from the newer versions of the Windows operating system. It also lets you use a wide range of customizations to personalize your computing experience. Main features: -Choosable classic style interface -Visible program list with drag and drop functionality -Classic desktop tools such as Orb, Notepad, Sticky Notes, and Calculator -Backward compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
The main feature and goal of Classic Shell are to replace those missing features with new ones. The Classic Start Menu functionality is modeled after a Windows 95 or Windows XP start menu and toolbar. Its classic start menu is customizable, giving you the choice between the classic cascading style menus or a combination of compact and expanded cascading styles. Its windows explorer toolbar provides access to computer management tasks, drives, networks, and folders. It also offers additional configuration options such as disabling the search pane in all Explorer windows or disabling new folder creation.
This is an application that enhances the Windows 8 start menu to make it more useful and friendly to work in. It does not have all the bells and whistles of a full-fledged shell replacement, but it brings back some important features which otherwise are lost in Windows 7/8/10.
