    how make open shell start menu icon overwrite w10 start menu


    New to this forum so may not get this process right.

    I have Open Shell (v4.4.131) installed. Works fine but I have to click the start menu button a few time to get the classic two columns menu on the screen. The W10 start menu is not hidden and comes up first.

    The classic shell use to overwrite the w7 Start menu icon.

    How do I just see the open shell menu icon?

    Plus I have two screens connected to my lap top vis a Toshiba docking station. Plus I run Actual Multi Monitors (v8.14.1).
    It gives me a task bar on each monitor. But the second monitor only show the W10 start menu icon.

    The classic shell use to overwrite the w7 Start menu icon on both task bars.

    How do I just see the open shell menu icon on the second monitor?

    I have the W10 Home edition v1903.

    It has been like this since I installed open shell.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    I installed Open Shell 4.4.142. No change.

    Any other suggestions?

    Mouse Hover (under Control Tab) does nothing. I hover over the W10 Start menu icon and nothings happens.

    Then I changed all options to Open-Shell Menu. Nothing changes.

    I want the W10 start menu icon replaced by the Open Shell menu like it worked for classic shell in W7.
    I do not even want to see the W10 start menu.

    Any other suggestions?
