Classic Shell Start Menu for Windows 8

We found a start menu for Windows 8 that looks and functions just like the start menu Windows 7 has.
Mike says “I prefer this menu so much, I put this on every windows 8 computer I setup.”

Microsoft completely removed the start button menu from windows 8, not even making an option to turn it back on. They replaced it with the new Metro screen with apps. The removal of the start button from windows 8 is the most common complaint we hear about windows 8.

Do you miss the convenient access to your user files, documents, pictures, music. control panel, and devices and printers? We found a program called Classic Shell that you download to your Windows 8 computer and it installs the Start menu that you know and love like the one from Windows 7.

If you do not have Windows 8, please disregard this article.


If you want to install it now,
go to to download the latest stable version. Open downloads, Run the installer. Then click the start button, now you have easy access to All programs, Search Files, your user files, documents, pictures, music, control panel, devices and printers, etc.
