Enables you to use previous windows versions of start menus and more.
There are also many customization options and skinning themes to choose from. If you really dislike like the Windows Start menu on your version of Windows, then Classic Shell may appeal, as it gives you back control of how you want your PC to look and feel, instead of putting up with the enforced GUI that came with your operating system.

A clipboard extender program, that is easy to use and will save you time. Adds a little icon in the taskbar to configure and see whats saved in the clipboard. In my opinion, this is how the default windows clipboard should be. Make sure you look at the stickies plugin which you can download from here
To get the plugin working create a folder called "plugins" in the same directory as the "clipx" folder and extract the clipx-stickies-1.7.zip into it. Then enable the option by right clicking the icon in the taskbar and selecting configure
