Classic Shell may sound as a program for experienced users, but in fact is a very useful piece of software intended to customize Windows 8/7 startup menu regarding how it looks, arrangement, what items appear or not etc., also navigation pane style and things related to folder options, view and efficiency while working with PC.

Although the program doesn't have a single desktop shortcut to access all its features, through Start menu you can access Classic Shell and then some important sections.

Here you can personalize and customize Start menu exactly as you want, try different tweaks through a simple and tabbed interface until you find the most convenient look. The program allows to select between different layouts, replace start button with a custom image, customize each button's default behavior, change the skin (classic, Windows 8, Aero, XP ..), choose which items will appear in Start menu and many more.

Classic Explorer settings
