    Start up and annoying pop ups


    New laptop set up by store Windows 10. hard drive failed after 3 weeks so new machine given !!!! and set up done again. This time it is completely different and I dont know how to correct it,
    1 at the start I only have those damn tiles and my "list" to the far left is missing, like the one in Windows 7. how do I get that back, is there an easy way as im not techie
    2 when im on any page, if i move my cursor from right to left i get a clock and options bar to right it just appears.

    I just want the windows 7 start up list back and the damn floating clock gone, then maybe I will start to like Windows 10.

    Download and install Classic Shell. That will give you back your Windows 7 style Start Menu.

    A better option is Stardock's Start8 but it costs $4.99.

    IMHO, Classic Shell is better than Start8 since it has everything Start8 has plus more.

    Classic shell is great for those who are used to dealing with a little more complex type of programs. Start8 does not give you the App menu. Start10 does. As for a floating clock, that is something that I have not seen, unless it is new.

    I would say Start10, and download the old Windows 7 style Calculator from Old Windows 7 Calculator for Windows 10
