That is a Windows 8.1 limitation. The Desktop is not part of Classic Shell and the shortcuts are also created by Windows, not Classic Shell.

Classic Shell does NOT do any permanent modification to Windows. In fact, its modifications are all in-memory and as soon as it is unloaded, Windows reverts to its default behavior. So whatever broke in your Windows - you can be 101% sure it is not Classic Shell.
