    "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" have no "Start Menu" tab anymore??

    Here's a screenshot of "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialog from a fresh clean install of Windows 10 Pro x64

    As you can see, despite its name, it does not have a tab for "Start Menu". I remember that Preview versions of Windows 10 had a "Start Menu" tab. Did they just remove at the last moment? And how I change Start Menu options without that tab?

    Hello RenoYeh, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Tiles are suppose to stay updated on their own now. If one doesn't, then turning the live tile off and on should update it.

    Okay, folks. Same disfunction, different problem.
    1. Below are three screen shots -- Win 10, 8.1 & 7 Note the variances in tabs and options. [Sorry if pngs too small, don't think I can enlarge]
    2. My problem -- I want to disable the "recent" list option for all jump lists. E.g., Word -- don't want to see recent items when I hit the Word icon on the taskbar.
    3. So, where is the disable recent lists option that has been around forever?????

    This is Robyn again - new info re Win 10 jump lists

    Footnote. Surprise, surprise. Win 10 failure abounds.
    Per Win 10 tutorials, a START MENU was in fact built into "Taskbar & Start Menu" properties. See below article excerpt.

    So. Win 10 giveths and takeths. And Windows' fix is??
