    Start Menu Appearance On Open


    Hello everyone. I've loved this sight and its Windows 7 counterpart for long time. Thank you for all the work you do and for the information you provide.

    My question is can I make the Start Menu open up like what is shown in the image below, instead of the long list of programs down the left side?

    Thank you

    You can click and drag the edge and change the tile sizes. And there's tablet mode (full screen). (Settings, search for 'tablet').

    Hello Mehns,

    You could hide the All Apps list in the Start menu to help some.
