    +1 for Classic Shell. If Upgrading from Win8/8.1 there will be a message and it will be removed but the new one works.

    I have poll'd between the different changers and Classic Shell is best performer over all. It allows you to keep the Start menu AND use one of those offered by configuring the middle button to include which yo want. Re-size the start button if needed to fit your preference.
    The others have issues such as Start 10 you must disable the search bar, Start++ would offset the menu neither allows you to just have the original menu and add a start button.

    To see the Windows 10 menu select Windows start menu for "Left click opens" and "Windows key opens". If you cannot find these settings, check the Show all settings box to show all tabs.

    Similarly, open an explorer window, such as This PC and click on the shell icon to open Classic Explorer settings. Check the Show all settings box to show all tabs and go to Toolbar buttons tab where you can add/remove buttons. If you don't want them at all, close the settings and right-click next to the buttons, then click on Classic Explorer Bar and reply yes when asked to disable it. The same goes for Internet Explorer. Right click on the top of the window and click Classic Explorer bar. Reply yes when asked to disable it. This way you can use Classic Shell to only change the start button (and miss all the rest nice features).
