"Using with Windows 10"
Version: Classic Shell 4.2.4
Works well with Windows 10 to look and act more like Windows 7.
I tried to uninstall Windows 10 but no matter what I tried, it won't go back to Windows 7 (yes, the Windows.old file IS there but the Recovery process in Windows 10 refuses to find it) so this Classic Shell® is a very nice feature to have.
As a previous reviewer commented, it is a tad sluggish.
Windows 10, without Classic Shell®, seems to run a bit faster than Windows 7.
I noticed after installing Classic Shell® that Windows 10 slowed down a bit.
One of our HP Pavilions updated to Windows 10 using the Windows Update (vs downloading via Microsoft to a flash drive) and now cannot go back to Windows 7.Update:
The Windows.old file is in my C:\ drive but Windows 10 Recovery states that it has been deleted. It has not (I've since changed the file name so Windows doesn't automatically delete it at the end of the month).
I really don't like anything off the Start button in Windows 10 nor do I like the Edge Browser, so I tried to uninstall it. I'm stuck with it on my main PC that I use daily, but the other three computers running Windows 8.1 & Windows 7 will stay as they are.
I actually did install Windows 10 to one of the Windows 7 PCs using the download from Microsoft to a flash drive and was able to uninstall it. But the PC that was updated using the Windows Update, is stuck with Windows 10 so Classic Shell® has eased my Windows 10 anxiety a bit

Right after I had installed the latest version of Classic Shell, a newer version was available (version 4.2.4), which does not appear to be sluggish at all, so I would now rate this as "5 stars" if I could change my review.
