    Hey Robin,

    So far it looks like the Charms bar is gone for good.

    If you like, you could use this below to make it easy to toggle between using the two different Start menus and the modern UI Start screen. :)

    actually I like it this way better, I could not stand the charms or the charms side
    but if I did not want this- is there a third party program out yet to make it look like windows 7 or because of the fact there is on more metro side will there be none available because then how would you see the apps?

    You seem to be confusing the Start Screen with the Charms bar. The Charms bar pops out from the right-hand side of the screen in Win 8.x when you move the mouse cursor to the top right-hand corner of the screen. It allowed you to access Settings, Search, Devices, etc... The Charms bar is gone in Win 10, instead you access many of the same functions by clicking on the notification icon in the far right of the Taskbar.

    In Win 8.x, the Start screen is displayed when you click on the Start button. In Win 10, clicking on the Start button brings up the new Start menu. You can access all installed apps (including Metro or Modern apps) by clicking on the All apps link at the bottom left side of the new Start menu.

    You can configure Win 10 to use either the Start screen of the Start menu which is covered in the link that Brink gave you above.

    that's still there, you just have to click the expand button. Or set your computer to tablet mode.

    On Win-10, I just installed the old familiar "Classic Shell" and operate my PC as if it had Windows 7 on it.

    No harm, no foul! :)

    The metro screen that you are referring to is the Start screen. The Start screen can be displayed in the Start and Apps view like below.

    If you like, the context menu tutorial I posted earlier will make it easy to toggle to use the Start screen or Start menu as you like.

    It is a personal view, I guess, but I have never regarded the second picture as the start menu. It is gui representation of the tangle you would see if you opened all the folders in the text menu.

    By restoring the expandable start menu, I have, however, been able to also restore the (what I call) the modern start menu, which I had customised and used as my basic start window.
    The subject has been discussed at length, I am aware, and it is almost a 50/50 split of preference.
    One problem I see with the new start menu is for those who have a clutter of opened programs on there desktop. Surely it can be difficult to then try and open yet another from that spread of icons?
    I realise that, on clicking the start icon, any selection will popup over other windows, but still...imo only

    The question was not if you have install the app classic shell. . .
