User Reviews

  • THE tool to make Windows usable. The great success of this program is like a slap in the face of Microsoft's managers: Visioneers too often loose their contact to the ground of real needs.

  • If you've used windows over the decades, Classic Shell makes Windows 10 is usable. Without it, the impedance of trying to find, do, or start something becomes silly. I don't know who designed the Microsoft Win 10 interaction model, but its focus on tiles, apps and mobile makes the desktop experience excruciating. Hope the community can keep Classic Shell alive.

  • Best third party utility for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10. Something Microsoft should have done. Sorry to see it end.

  • Best Start Menu Replacement.

  • I'll miss you, Classic Shell. It was a great ride, but alas, this is goodbye. RIP
