    Restore to Windows 8 style Start Screen


    Is there any way of restoring to the older Windows 8 style start screen? I was able to do this in the previous iteration of the preview, but unable to do it on the current 9926.

    Yep, that tutorial is no longer valid since it's no longer an option in the latest Windows 10 build.

    Instead, you can use the tutorial below to turn on Start full-screen. :)
