As many of you know, Windows 10 was released to the masses on the 29th of July 2015. As promised I am starting a series of articles covering the many features of Windows 10.
For this one, let’s take a look at the start menu. As you can see there are a few changes to the start menu since Windows 7. You now have these tiles. They can be re-arranged so that you have the applications that you really care about up at the top.
On the left-hand side you will have all of your frequently used applications. At the bottom you have an option where you can see all your applications listed in alphabetical order. At the time of publishing I have been using Windows 10 for 2 days and there has been a bug in that I cannot remove some of the tiles on the right-hand side. Hopefully with an update that will get fixed.
Of course, you also have the ability to access the new “settings” panel as well as a “power” button to shut down or restart your Windows 10 desktop or laptop.
In any case I am so glad that Microsoft brought the start menu back into the mix as it were. I will be covering this and all the other features in more depth in my full Windows 10 review so stay tuned.
