    Start menu ??????


    Is it possible to have the start menu open with all apps as default?

    Hi, a much better option is to use Classic Shell (free) which gives you a Win 7 or XP-like menu - if you like, expanding across the screen as you browse it.

    That expresses the normal hierarchical start menu including all its folders.

    In the Win 10 menu you will find subfolders are not even shown- their contents are. Thus you might see
    Help
    Help
    Help

    - all for different programs.
    Silly.

    Classic Shell will also let you navigate thru the universal apps via a folder you can add as an option.
    And did I mention you can change the start button?
    Oh, and you can still launch the Win 10 start menu with a key combination.

    Classic Shell's menu also has an option to open All Programs directly and automatically when you click the Start button. Go to Main Menu tab in its Settings and check the option "Open automatically" under All Programs style.

    xpclient: that changes the format of Classic Shell's display, not the way the Win 10 menu is displayed. If you also enable universal apps to be shown in Classic Shell, they still appear as one folder in the list shown by Classic Shell.

    @dalchina, I was replying to the original poster's question about how he can have the Classic Start menu open with All apps by default instead of using the Windows 10 menu. I know how Classic Shell works since I do its testing. :)
