KDE for Windows is *not* a shell replacement. You can't replace the task
bar and start menu with Plasma. It's only a port of KDE *Applications* to
run on Windows.

Apparently someone got Plasma to work on Windows (there is a video on
YouTube), but it appears in a standalone window. Replacing the Windows
Explorer shell involves a lot of work with private and undocumented Windows
APIs. I don't think anyone is interested in doing that work.
