Windows 10: Start view in Windows 10??

    Start view in Windows 10??

    Two questions:

    • When I left-click the WIndows 10 start button, all I see is the bunch of apps I pinned there, plus the little lines at the top left that switch the view to recent apps. At the bottom I see a power button and more lines that take me to all apps. I'd post a screenshot but apparently you can't take a shot of Start view in Windows 10. In a previous bout of insanity, I took someone's advice and changed the Start view and can't find that option again. Where is the option that takes me back to the view where you see shortcuts to all this stuff including Control Panel?
    • How do I get to a command prompt? I can't make any sense of the results when I enter a command into the Cortana thing.

    Right click Start Button for Command Options, Control Panel, and many other options.

    Thanks, that partly solves the problem, but how to switch to the other view when you right click on Start button? It was apparently the default until I changed it.

    Open "Find a setting" box type start.....this will give you loads of options.
