    I also prefer using the All Apps screen over a traditional Start Menu. For me, I think it's easier to find stuff.

    End of the day I'll get the update or buy a new copy of Win10. I really think the new version will be worth it in the long run.

    Ok.. if you had Classic Shell set up there is a ICON on the top that toggles you to the Start Scree. It's in the same place that my name would be found.

    You would press on that and bingo! Start Screen. Let me go over to win 8 and post an image.

    Yup and that's why MS has brought it back to W10, because many people agree with you. However, for those of us who have grown to like and use the W 8.1 Start Screen, hopefully it will be available to use in W10 on non touch screens. Having the choice to set W10 up the way each user wants, would be a good thing IMHO.

    In my Win8.1.1 OS I have classic shell and there is a button you can press to take you directly to the start screen. That would be nice to have in the Win10 start menu.

    OK, I got ya!
    'StartIsBack' had that too. As a matter of fact, with StartIsBack, I could open the Start Screen on one monitor and the Start Menu on the other!
    Here's an idea, see if you can find that file and make a custom .vbs file from the info!
