    Have you looked in Settings
    System
    Display
    Then scroll down to Default Apps
    Scroll down again
    Until you come to
    Reset to Microsoft default Apps
    Then click
    Reset
    Hopefully that is what you want

    On your system the default user will still have a fresh start menu layout and you could create a temporary new user and examine that start menu to see how it looks but I do not have a clever way of resetting your own unless this idea sparks off someone else to suggest one!

    Well, I tried other tutorials but it looks like they don't work anymore. So, I have a fresh install of my sister's PC of the Default Start Menu and copying it on my mom's Desktop PC.

    Yes, but I rearranged it to my liking. Now, my OCD has kicked in after I saw a Default Windows 10 Start Menu and want it back to Default.

    Can you post an image of what you have now and what you want it to look like. If you simply removed the tiles from the right of the start then all you should have to do is pin them back on there.

    Here's what mine looks like and I just pin or remove the tiles as I want so it suits my needs:
