"Works on Windows 8 Consumer Preview-"
This version has been updated and so it now works on Windows 8 Consumer preview.and it brings back both the start button and Classic and Windows XP start menu on Windows 8. And it also works on Windows Vista and Windows 7.Also the Classic Shell start menu is much more customisable than the default Microsoft Classic Start menu you get on Windows Vista and Windows 7.You also get the Windows XP start menu,which I love,which of course is not included in either Windows Vista or Windows 7 or 8. But Classic shell will put back the Windows XP start menu.It also puts the Classic Windows 2000 toolbar buttons on windows Explorer and this also works on Windows 8,as well as on Vista and 7.
None,except that you cannot use this on Windows XP.As it is only for Windows Vista,windows 7 and Windows 8.
There are several start menu programs but classic Shell this program is the best one. As it has a lot of features and customisation options and it is free to use for as long as you want to. So windows vista and 7 users who are looking for the Classic and windows XP start menu can get it back with Classic Shell. and Classic Shell also works on windows 8 and brings back the start orb and Windows XP,classic and Windows Vista menu's.This is the perfect program and I am very please that it has been updated to work on Windows 8. Where most people like me need a Windows XP start menu. Andrea Borman.I have used this program for many months now since I first read about it. I use it on windows 7 and on Windows Vista. Because the default Classic start menu on Vista has limited functions and of course you don't get the Windows XP start menu either. But thanks to Classic Shell I now have both the Classic and Windows XP start menu on both my windows Vista and Windows 7. And I also have the Windows XP start menu and start button on Windows 8.so Classic Shell is ideal for Windows 8 too. Andrea Borman.
