Windows 10: I cannot access the settings for the Start menu

    I cannot access the settings for the Start menu


    Hello everyone,

    This is pretty straightforward: I cannot access the settings for the start menu. When I do a right click on the task bar and then click on "properties", I should have a "Start menu" tab in the window. The problem is : I don't have that tab.

    Also, I don't have the possibility to pin apps to the start menu, this is a bit annoying.

    Do you guys have any idea what may be causing this?

    Thanks a lot,
    sj.

    Have you tried LEFT click at the Start button ?

    You don't because it is no longer there in Windows 10. MS has taken that out in Windows 10.

    If your left click at Start button and it leads you to Start Menu screen, then you will be able to pin anything.
