About Classic Shell

For those of you who didn’t like losing your Start button in Windows 8, Classic Shell provides a customizable set of features that allows users to bring back the classic Windows experience. Most notable of these features is the upgraded start menu button. While many loved the intuitive start button from Windows XP, it has been replaced by the Windows 8 Start Menu. With Classic Shell, you can undo the Start button change and get your Start button back.
