Classic Shell for Windows 8

    2) Whatever was interfering with Windows7's frequently/recently used programs showing up in the Start Menu fixed itself. This wasn't Classic Shell's fault, my bad.

    4) Are you saying I can use Agent Ransack to display search results for files inside the "Classic Shell Start Menu"? I attempted to use Agent Ransack, but it just launched a new Agent Ransack window, rather than inter-link with Classic Shell.

    4) It opens another window. Just like in the Windows 7 menu when you click on "See more results" - it opens a browser window. There is no standard for search applications, so there's no way to capture the results of such application and show them in the menu.

    When you say "the app is on the list", which app do you mean, and which list? Is the process (which one?) in the process list? Is the service in the service list? Is the component selected in the installer's list?

    Folks, I just installed Classic Shell with no problem. I rejected the Explorer 9 option and chose the other three. It works fine.
