Editors' review

Classic Shell is a powerful application that gives you access to tons of customization options for your operating system. Changing your Start menu, Windows Explorer, and Internet Explorer is easy with this innovative application.

Pros

Easy install: For its magnitude and impact on the Windows operating system, we found Classic Shell to be quite easy to install and configure. We quickly changed our Windows theme without any errors in formatting or usability.

Loaded with options: From the general Windows theme to the Start menu icon, Classic Shell gives you the ability to modify and tweak your user interface. The variety of tools available can easily be changed and saved at any time, which is great if your computer is shared with others.

Exceptional support: Classic Shell comes with one of the most detailed ReadMe files that we've encountered with a free application. It also provides quick links to even more informative FAQs and forums, which you'll find active and helpful.

Cons

Slow navigation: We noted that the speed of our operating system and Internet Explorer was slower than our standard theme. Classic Shell, by its nature, is also less streamlined than the current Windows theme, so finding folders and files can be a hassle.

Bottom Line

Classic Shell is a great application for Windows users that want to experience removed features, especially the Start button that was removed from Windows 8. Your user interface can be fully modified to suit all of your needs. We think Classic Shell should offer an easier way of customizing your PC, preferably in a manner similar to Start8. Download Classic Shell and access your favorite parts of Windows.
