    What a PROPER start menu should look like


    Hi there

    IMO a DECENT functioning start menu should be totally user customiseable with a SEARCH at the TOP rather than at the bottom of the screen.

    Here's an example from Linux KDE desktop --totally customiseable. You can switch it too to a "classic cascadable Menu" like XP had if you want - no re-boots needed can do ir at any time. I prefer the version shown. Cascadable version also shown.

    Cheers

    Ditto.

    I'm just in the process of downloading the new Windows 10 build but don't hold out too many hopes for a proper Start Menu given what was shown at last weeks Windows 10 presentation.

    Not really an appropriate response from an Administrator!

    Hi there

    It's customiseable so you can make it look anyway you want - there's zillions of themes etc you can choose --I prefer just plain and simple - others prefer different things.

    The whole point was that I think the SEARCH should be at the TOP and not at the BOTTOM. The NEW W10 menu is very inflexible especially if you have a LOT of applications on your PC. The previous (build 9879) version of the start menu was a lot more customiseable and IMO useable even with the Search at the bottom. !!

    The previous version (build 9879) was more useable IMO. Dave44 has posted a fix so you can use the Old version on build 9926 but you will lose the ability to expand directly to the start screen (not important for me - i'd rather have a functioning search facility).

    In any case there's nothing wrong with people saying they don't like stuff whether an admin or not.

    Cheers

    Windows has never been that customizable, you always had to install a 3rd party software.

    I always installed Tuneup Utilities on XP.
