    Hi.

    What's the best way to transition from Classic Shell to Classic Start?
    Is there a clean uninstaller for Clasic Shell? If so, please provide a link.

    I see the name is changing, too!



    P.S. The link for Open-Shell (Home Page) dosen't work.

    Code:
    https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu
    I just used the windows uninstaller Program/Features
    I did back up my setting to xml file
    Then after instgalling classic Start I restored my setting with the xml file. all seems to be working on 1803 for me on 3 com;uters

    Just backup and install over Classic Shell, no problems.


    Open-Shell 4.4.126 ( Classic-Start rebranded ) Open-Shell continues the Classic Shell project giving you access to the classic style Start Menu for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.

    The links are all combined into one. If you separate them they work.

    Ok I have installed 4.4.126 Open Shell, I did this without uninstalling Classic Start 4.4.109. The result is Open Shell opened to a clean new program all setting back to default. Ok I installed the xml file that I had saved from Classic Shell and My setting are back. I have very few actual custom setting start buttom custom, I don't even remembe the rest but I've been set up pretty much they way I was in window 7. There may be setting that didn't come forward that I haven't noticed yet.
    Since I didn't uninstall Classic Start, looked in Program and features and classic start is not there only Open Shell is there. So next I looked in Program files X86 no Classic Start and no Open Shell. Hmm so its 64 bit program now?
    Anyway sure enough on opening program Files I only find Open shell.

    Only have this installed for 10 minutes or so have rebooted and no issues that I have noticed so far.
    @Adriaan Jansens needs to fix the posted links

    One word of caution, if you install the newest nightly build Open Shell 4.4.126, your special skins will not follow the new installation. You will find any special skins you have previously downloaded still in the Classic Start Folder under Programs Files. It's necessary to copy this Skins Folder to the Open Shell Folder, and run the xml to restore them. If you are not real sure of what you are doing, like I was, just pass the Nightly Build for now. I'm sure they will adjust things in the future to make it easier to move from Classic Start to Open Shell. Thanks to Macrium Reflect, I finally got all my Skins back and working in the Start Menu.
