How can I easily add the Start menu for a specific user and not for others?

Let's say I want only an advanced User to have the Start button added to Windows 8 and other users setup in the Default Windows 8 configuration?

All Classic Start Menu settings are per-user however on Windows 8, all items loaded at startup whether from the per-user or all user (per machine) startup locations are delayed significantly. Because of this, on Windows 8, Classic Shell uses a service to start itself fast, a service will start it for all users. If you want make it per-user, simply go to Services.msc and stop/disable the service. Then add a shortcut to C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenu.exe to the user's startup folder. (But note that it will start with a delay of few seconds - that is because of Windows 8).

I think you may need to update this article. First, there is no way to disable or remove the service. Second,
at the next restart, the service will be reactivated.


What you need to do is install Classic Shell. Next go to C:\Programs Files and rename ClassicShellService.exe to something else like ClassicShellService.ex_ Next reboot and the service won't be installed. Then add a shortcut to the ClassicShellMenu.exe into the user's Startup folder.

Works like a charm.

The service can be disabled from Services.msc (in Administrative Tools). No need to rename any files.

Ok, didn't dig deep enough. Right Click on Automatic to reach Disable.
