    Different colored tiles in Start Menu


    Windows 10 Pro
    Does anyone know what the significance of the highlighted items might mean? Googling this turned up empty. Mighty thankful for your help.

    That looks like Classic Shell, not Win 10 Start Menu.

    Welcome to Ten Forums Musicollector.

    You appear to have Classic Shell, and it is mimicking Windows 7 behaviour. Recently installed programs are highlighted until you have run them from the highlighted Start menu link. The standard W10 Start does something similar, indicating a recently installed program with 'new' under its name rather than a highlight.

    More on that in this thread on the Classic Shell Forum
