    Open Shell made my original Start Menu disappear/no longer working.


    Today I suddenly found that even if I shift click on Start Menu button in my Win10-64bit, no start menu opens. And if I click without shift key, then Open Shell menu opens.

    So to regain the Win10 default start menu, I uninstalled the Open Shell.
    But now, not only the start menu doesn't appear, but some of my apps are behaving very abnormally. E.g. Firefox browser opens only in any one corner of the display.
    No desktop icons are being shown.
    Taskbar right click doesn't work anywhere.

    Etc etc.

    Can anyone pls help?

    :)

    You can pin a personalized list but you have to re-create custom shortcuts...

    RE: "How do you create a cascading toolbar to list the Apps as conveniently done by Classic Shell?"

    I don't use CS or have not used it recently. If you mean start menu apps then you just add

    "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu"
