    Classic Shell - Duplicate App Entries?


    In one user account, Classic Shell has started showing two entries for the Photos App and Video Editor (see below). There is only one entry in the standard Windows 10 menu and both Classic Shell links open the same version of the app. I've reset and repaired the apps. I also noticed there are two versions of the Photos App - version 2019.19041.165100 is the one which is opened by the app. How do you delete the uneeded old app? Is there a fix for this strange behaviour which I've never seen in CS before?

  2. Classic Shell Program

    Hi Jane,

    If you go into settings - apps - do you see the classic shell on that list? If so, are you able to uninstall from there?

    Let me know and we can work through this!

  3. uninstalling Classic Shell

    I upgraded to Windows 10 when it was first available at the end of June 2016. After a couple of months I decided to install Classic Shell. I have been trying recently to uninstall Classic Shell multiple times since but I still get the screen like Windows
    7. I have tried to install Classic Shell and then uninstall it with no luck. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get my PC back to Windows 10? Thanks for your help.

    I don't want Classic Shell on my hard-drive.

    Hi Nickolas,

    Thank you for giving us an opportunity to assist you with the query.

    Classic Shell is a freeware, formerly open-source software[4][6] for Microsoft Windows that restores several usability-oriented Windows user interface (shell) features, File Explorer features and Internet Explorer features which have been removed by
    Microsoft.

    To uninstall Classic Shell, follow the below steps:


    • Press Windows + X keys, and select Control Panel.

    • Look for the Programs and Features.

    • Click on the Programs and Features option to open it on a new window.

    • Right-click on Classic Shell and choose
      Uninstall option.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
