Windows 10: Start Menu cannot be customized

    Start Menu cannot be customized


    While running the newest Insider build (10532) I do not see an option to customize the Start Menu. What I wanted was when right-clicking and seeing the list having "Devices & Printers" listed as an option. As it is not there, there is also no apparent way to add it...?

    Hi there. There is no customization of the Start menu as in past OSs. However, you can add a tile to the Start menu by right clicking on "Devices & Printers in the Control Panel.

    Install Start10 or Classic shell and you'll get Devices and Printers back, as well as Run and other useful things.

    Yes, that is an option, although at present I'm testing Win10 as delivered. If the final build still doesn't meet what I want then a third party app. I want to see how MS tweaks and patches this stuff first.
