    First Name:
    The developer of the Classic Shell Start menu app has stopped its development because of Windows 10.

    Each new bi-annual upgrade of Windows 10 breaks the app, and it requires too much time and effort on the part of its developer to keep it up-to-date.

    Hi, thanks Frank, we still use it on all our machines. Installed on 28 machines yesterday, no problems, all running latest version of win 10. We will mod it so it keeps working if any problems arise. I don't see why with the developers approval those mod's could not be made freely available. The decision to discontinue development was fist announced back in December of 2017.
