    Is it possible to change the Start Menu icon in classic shell from the Shell to something else?

    Yes, Go to start menu settings then chose the icon that you want.

    Sweet, thanks. Now, does anyone know where the start button icon is stored on Win 7? I found this png via a Google search, but I don't know if that is going to work with Classic Shell

    Here's the one that I used. You will have to save it as an Icon. I tried to up load the icon. But that's an invalid file type. Sorry.

    You can put the icon in a .zip and upload that.

    I ended up using this one instead: Classic Shell • View topic - Windows 8.1 Start Button

    I'm having problems with the 3.9.0 beta as far as the Disable Active Corners set to All goes. It doesn't appear to be working properly for me. If I intentionally point to a corner nothing happens, but as I use the computer I'm getting what appear to be random overlays of the charm and time start rectangle, but in black with white print. Click on the screen and it disappears. I'm on 8, not 8.1. Is there some setting I'm missing?

    Is it possible that you are activating gestures using a touchpad? Classic Shell doesn't deactivate those. They are controlled by the touchpad driver.
