    How to make a start menu on the taskbar on Windows 10 preview?


    There is a post (windows 8 forum -http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...8-taskbar.html ) to install the start menu on the task bar for Windows 8 but it does not fully work on windows 10, does anyone know if there is a similar way to put a fully working start menu on windows 10 taskbar?

    Welcome to TenForums 'eagle'!
    Similar to the tutorial but instead of using the suggested folder:
    - In a 'Run' box type 'shell:appsfolder', (without the quotes), select all, right click on them, create shortcut, then cut and paste all the shortcuts that should go to your desk top and paste them in your new folder.
    - delete the ones you don't want to use then rename the ones you want to save.

    I found a solution by creating a new folder where you want it saved then name it start menu. Then I followed the paths below and copied the program files from each location and then pasted them in the new folder called start menu. Then started a new toolbar on the task bar selecting the new folder. see picture:
    Show hidden folders to see the program data folder.
    C: program data, microsft, windows, start menu, programs
    C: users, default, app data, roaming, microsft, windows, start menu, programs
