    • the programs show in a tree inside the main menu
    • search results and jump lists show inside the main menu
    • dedicated shutdown button
    • the unparalleled customizability you've come to expect from Classic Shell
  • You can search for files as well as programs, using the Windows Search
  • The menu can show the most frequently used programs
  • Programs can be pinned directly from Explorer
  • New programs are automatically highlighted in the menu
  • The list of Classic Shell settings can be searched to easily find the setting you need
  • New more reliable way to start on Windows 8, that doesn't use a service
  • The start menu can use the native Windows 8.1 start button
  • New status bar for Explorer that shows the total size of the selected files and the free disk space
  • Improved support for downloading and installing language files
  • Many improvements to performance and responsiveness

See the release history for all development work of version 4.
