    Wow, that Classic Shell is just perfect. Exactly what I've been looking for these past two weeks with my new Windows 8.1 laptop. THANKS A LOT David Bailey! It is especially nice in combination with my external monitor using Actual Multiple Monitors.

    I am referring to when you right click on the start button[not the link to classic ] and got Program uninstalls, left click the start button
