Try classic start as classic shell has been discontinued:

The desktop should be the same, it is the start screen you want to replace.

Interesting, when I tried to install it using ninite.com it said to use classic start as classic shell was deprecated.

That nonsense seems to be gone in Windows 10. Or if it's not gone,
JAWS make it seem like it is.
