    Yes, version 4.0.6 fixes the crash in Explorer. This is the only difference from 4.0.5.

    Windows 8.0


    Novice here.

    Still using 8.0

    MSI . GS70 2OD-002US 17.3-Inch Laptop
    Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.4 GHz
    16 GB DDR3L SDRAM
    1024 GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive, 256GB Solid-State Drive (2 X 128GB RAID)
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX765M
    Windows 8.0



    was using a paid app for Start. I use MS Start Apps and also put a shortcut on desktop. when I switched to Classic Shell , the Start Apps shortcut became unresponsive in all locations. Have to go to individual apps...

    Any way to correct this?

    "Start Apps" doesn't sound like a Windows feature or a Classic Shell feature. Maybe it was something implemented by the previous software you used, which you uninstalled?

    I'm still using 4.0.4 and love it. I'm not even going to try the Windows 8.1 version as I know I wont like it as much, but I'm wondering should I update to 4.0.6 for security reasons?

    Thanks.

    Oh well........

    I stopped Classic Shell from running by mistake and the new Windows version of the menu wasn't there as I had expected. So what all those pictures from 8.1 launch were showing I know not. The Start button just took me straight to Metro!

    Implemented Shell as soon as possible and now i can work again.....

We have released a skin for Classic Shell. It looks good in Windows 8, much better than default skins. The skins shipping as part of Classic Shell do not match the look of the Windows 7 Start Menu or the style of Windows 8. Many settings also need to be heavily tweaked to get a more closer...
