    Classic Shell v4.0 Released

    Although there are better replacement Start Menu programs available, it's hard to beat the price of this if you have to install one.

    Website / Download / Screenshots / Changelog

    Here some of the highlights:

    • New "Windows 7" menu style that replicates the look and feel of the Windows 7 start menu
      • the programs show in a tree inside the main menu
      • search results and jump lists show inside the main menu
      • dedicated shutdown button
      • the unparalleled customizability you've come to expect from Classic Shell
    • You can search for files as well as programs, using the Windows Search
    • The menu can show the most frequently used programs
    • Programs can be pinned directly from Explorer
    • New programs are automatically highlighted in the menu
    • The list of Classic Shell settings can be searched to easily find the setting you need
    • New more reliable way to start on Windows 8, that doesn't use a service
    • The start menu can use the native Windows 8.1 start button
    • New status bar for Explorer that shows the total size of the selected files and the free disk space
    • Improved support for downloading and installing language files
    • Many improvements to performance and responsiveness

    Important Note: Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 are no longer supported. Version 3.6.8 was the last one to support them.

    Will give this a look. Used to use it, but found it a little crashy (early days of w8) and moved to Start8. Always like to have a backup though
