With public release of Windows 10 OS a long way to go, users are still stuck with technical preview version of Windows 10. The upcoming operating system packs in a lot of changes from its predecessors and also brings in hoards of new features. One of the prominent changes you will get to see is the return of the Windows Start menu. The new Start menu is back, albeit with few changes. Although not the Windows 8 style Start screen, the Start menu still contains Live tiles that were introduced in the predecessor version.
If you want to install the Windows 10 OS, you only need to head over to the official Microsoft website and log-in using your Microsoft credentials. One of the first things you will notice is the better ability to customize the user-interface to suit your needs. For example, if you do not like Live Tiles inside Windows Start menu, you can turn the feature off. You can move the tiles around and set the size of each tile, enabling you to optimize the OS the way you want. Thus, if you want to roll back to the classic style Windows operating system, you can do so by making use of the Classic Shell.
In the Beta 4.2.0 version, you will get the configuration improvements you require as well as better Windows Support. Thus, you can use the Technical Preview version to replace the built-in Windows Start menu with the ones that come along with Classic Shell. Among the list of options, you can choose from Classic style, Classic style with two columns and Windows 7 Style.
Once you have installed the Beta 4.2.0 version, you will be able to set the Windows Start menu the way you want it. However, the Windows 10 Start button will remain regardless of the Start menu setting you choose. If you wish, you can change the Windows 10 Start button to something else. As you can see, classic shell in Windows allows a greater amount of customization options. Moreover, the classic shell will be upgraded from time to time to accommodate higher degree of customization. At present, the available options are identical to the ones found in Windows 8 version.
If you require further help with classic shell, or require technical support in rolling back a specific update, you can contact the Windows Support department. The support technicians will help you troubleshoot any issues you have with your Windows system.
