    Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit (7 Ult, Vista & XP in V-Box)

    I just changed from StartMenu 7 to Classic Shell.

    Once I'd played around with the options, I'm very happy with it.

    And it looks much neater and more professional.

    If you are interested in this skin for "Classic Shell" than I can try to translate it in English.

    Can you please elaborate? Bonus points for using a specific example or complete sentences.

    I put the start menu setting to win8 startup.
    Actually, when I start PC, I want to only start button.
    I do not understand this setting.

    If you are talking about the setting "Disable the Start screen popup", it is to prevent the tiny start menu thumbnail from popping up when you move the mouse to the bottom-left corner. It does not disable the Metro start screen.

    Hover the mouse over the setting to see a tooltip that describes it in more detail.

    Hi Ivo ,

    I am still getting explorer freezes when trying to open a drive from the menu.

    It only happens when I click on a drive from the computer menu.

    Might be the way I have set it up:

    Hm, that's quite hard to see. The MenuItems value was saved as hex numbers. Can you post it as text?
    Anyway, my guess would be that your Computer has some shell extension that is incompatible with Classic Shell - maybe an icon handler, or namespace extension?
    You can narrow down the problem by including the sub-items of Computer as separate menu items. Then open them one by one to see which one freezes Explorer.

    Once again.
    My request is very simple.
    When I start PC, I would like to be the picture below the desktop screen.
