    I'm currently using Classic Shell. It was the first thing I downloaded after I upgraded my laptops. I have a Lenovo Thinkpad E545 and a Compaq Presario CQ57-339WM.

    I love it. It feels like I'm using Windows 7 again. I had Windows 8.1 on my Thinkpad and I thought it was a piece of ****. It was very laggy and slow. I'm using the Aero Glass theme and my start menu looks just like the Windows 7 one.

    What are the advantages to using Start10 over Classic Shell?

    if you have time to complain and talk useless stuff about your preference in a useless thread (because you never even tried to use the Windows 10 start menu and seem you love disgusting fake glass effect and really horrible start menu from windows 7).
    I am sure you can find that answer by yourself. you know install one, and then the other and test and see if your life is complete

    I use both Classic Shell, for access to programs, and Start Menu, for access to pinned apps and live tiles.

    I have my own set of start menu folders (Home, Work, etc., which I always put next to Programs so they show up at the top of the menu. I've been doing this since Windows 95 ;) The All Apps view is not useable for this. It shows my folders but shows all the subfolders on one level.

    Nope. I don't really use the start menu much other than to launch the snippet tool.

    I paid for and use Stardock's start10. Together with making a quickmenu toolbar my desktop looks and feels like Windows 7.
