    Neither can I. I want to have all of the programs and folders that I had in Win on my start menu (classic shell).

    How to get something like this one?

    I too have this different version of the start menu. Its driving me crazy because all the tutorials have this other menu.

    Sadly, none of those tutorials show why i cant pin things to the left side of my start menu like others can by simply dragging it to the left side. I also don't have a search bar in my start menu like all of the pictures in the tutorials and on most forums.

    Dragging items to the left side of the Start menu is no longer an available feature.

    Search is on the taskbar by default and not Start. You can also press Win+S to open Search.
