    When a program as GREAT as this comes along that is as useful and professionally done as this one, I feel something more than just a "Thank you" is required. I couldn't find anywhere to make a voluntary donation. I can't donate a lot, but I feel your effort deserves something.

    Edit: Take that back. I found the "Support this Page" link.

    How do you change the start menu to the glass effect?

    The glass effect is not supported by the system. The only program I've seen that tries to emulate it is Vistart, but it doesn't look very good.

    I think I'll just stay with your version. It works perfectly and I've already customized it the way that I like.
    Thank you.

    I've upgraded to the latest version of ClassicShell, and it seems the option to 'bypass start screen on startup' is gone?

    It's under the Windows 8 Settings tab > skip Metro screen.

    Not finding it, or the win8 settings tab? Is this in the "Classic Explorer" part of the software?
