Im not exactly sure what happened; but its likely that you accidentally closed out of classic shell if you right click the start button there is an 'exit' option. This would close classic shell; Restarting your pc or running the .exe should restore it in this event.

The closest thing to that would be creating a custom folder, and linking to its contents, then using some outside script to update shortcuts in the folder.
Not something that can be done without decent coding experience.
