The latest beta version of Classic Shell, one of the most popular Start Menu alternatives for Windows, will support the Anniversary update. Besides supporting Windows 10’s upcoming major update, the latest version of the software is also full of performance improvements and bug fixes.

Developers of Classic Shell just released the beta version 4.2.7. This version mainly focuses on extending Windows 10 support, meaning that users running this tool on Redstone builds for Windows 10 Preview won’t have any problems with it anymore. Reportedly, a crash occurring in Windows 10 Preview was spotted, so the new version fixes it.

Besides updated compatibility with Windows 10 and various bug fixes, the latest version also brings some new features to Classic Shell. It improves menu animations for Windows 7 style and packs in new textures, colors, and text colors to the taskbar, along with a new Metallic skin and more.

Classic Shell is definitely one of the most popular and most successful customization tools for Windows. It basically works on every version of the OS, but came to prominence in Windows 8.1 where people used it to bring the Start Menu back.

Of course, it’s not less popular in Windows 10 either, as there are still some people who are not satisfied by the looks of Microsoft’s latest operating system. With Classic Shell, they have the ability to design the Start Menu and other Windows 10 UI elements the way they like it.

Classic Shell is available for free, and you can download the latest beta version 4.2.7 from their official website. Due to Classic Shell’s worldwide popularity, there are also translated versions of the tool available for free download.
