    Hey davidhk129, just so you know, it's not free. It's a 30 day trial and then cost $4.99.

    That's what I thought.

    Classic Shell 3.9.1 Beta for Win 8.1 is now ready for download.

    I don't know what I did.
    I gave the wrong link.
    You are right. That one is NOT free, and I did not use it.

    I meant to suggest this one which I do use ... Start Menu 8 by IObit

    The variety of third party start menus are, as far as I know, all "non" Apps, and, by their nature, will remain so. I don't see he App store being an issue as they have no affiliation there.

    No dispute here. I was responding to your post. As I said, why worry? They can be all downloaded direct from the web.
    FWIW. They are mostly already in the store. There isn't a great deal of supervision as to what can be there, so I guess they will remain.
