Give me a couple minutes to go over to the 'other side'!
How to switch your desktop to the 'Continuum' Menu:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\Launcher (you may have to create the 'Launcher' key),
In right-side pane of Launcher create a new DWORD UseExperience and set its value to 1
log off or restart Explorer
To remove this feature, either delete the DWORD or set its value to 0
Thank you, Edwin.
It's basically the enlargement of the Start Menu sitting on the desktop. Another step backwards so far as I'm concerned.
I think it's going to be geared towards tablets and the like.
Yes, for larger tablets and convertibles that the ancient-tech desktop will proportionally sit on a larger screen so touch is at least bearable. Now I'm wondering what it's going to be for smaller tablets and the Windows phone. Suppose it'll be just like 8 with more features.
For desktops where you have quite a lot of applications - here's a good example of why a Cascading Menu (classic menu type) works better than those endless scrolling tiles. I'd hate to scroll endlessly through tiles for this lot. !!!! On a large monitor it's fine too.
Using W8.1 here as an example -- I've only a few applications on my W10 test machines. Using a Linux Host in UNITY mode so you can see a classic menu even for Windows 8.1 !!!
If you have a lot of items on the Start Screen then why not put items into sections and use the zoom out option so you see many many more items on the screen, then just click on the group you want
just as easy as using a cascaded menu
