you are confusing the desktop with the start menu.
but there is no simple way to transfer all of your shortcuts from classic shell to windows 10's start menu without pinning them 1 at a time.
Those shortcuts (and the rest of your settings) should be preserved if you later reinstall classic shell

look for the 'controls' tab
make sure 'left click opens' is set to 'Classic start menu' and not 'windows start menu'

Open classic shell settings; then check the 'show all settings' button on the top, then look for the start button tab, then adjust the 'button size' field (0 defaults to the size of the image)
Try something like 60 to start, and increase/decrease that number till it matches.
