    Thanks to everyone who offered a solution here. I too have struggled to capture screenshots of menus. I tried Screenpresso but couldn't get on with it.

    Such a simple thing to do once you know how.

    Just thought I'd share this one with ya!

    'Greenshot' screen capture utility lets you freeze and capture anything on any screen pressing PrtScn.

    ... including mouse hover tips and animations:

    Hi there

    Another simple way

    PRTSCREEN then CTRL-C to copy to clipboard.

    now paste into WORD or WORDPAD if you don't have ms office.

    Enlarge with the zoom tool

    now simply use snipping tool to capture the image and then save as png.

    Then you can upload that file just like a normal snipping tool capture.

    Wordpad is included with the system --Windows accessories.

    Wouldn't it be quicker quicker to just paste the print screen into Paint and then crop it?

    I've been using PicPick after reading a posting in Eight Forums from Dino(topgundcp) and it's great.

    The default print screen function and Snipping tool works just fine. But for a more advanced way to screenshot the start menu, you can make use of applications like Jing, Snagit, or Free Online Screenshot. These applications can help you take screenshot of everything you see on screen. Plus they have other functions like annotating tool and a sharing function.

    Snipping tool has a delay menu choice, this delays the snip, after choosing the delay (times are in seconds) click "new" This gives time to open a start menu, then you can copy the desired shot like you normally would with the tool. attached a shot of my start menu using this process.

    I would like to get a screen shot of the start menu. I tried it with the Snipping Tool but when I click on the Snipping Tool, the start menu closes. I have build 10074.
    Just idle curiosity, but how do you still have build 10074?

This thread is meant to showcase the new Windows 10 Start menu with tiles or the more familiar Windows 8 Start Screen. You can use either the Start Menu or Start Screen by following Brink's Tutorial 5538 Start Menu 5539
I'm running the RTM on a netbook and have noticed that, unlike in Windows 7/8/8.1, I'm no longer able to hit Start and type in an executable. I have a bunch of portable apps that I typically type in and pull up. Now, the Start menu search pulls up...
Source Looked around and didn't see this exact piece of news in any threads. Lock me if old. Imo, I just hope they won't still try to make live tiles down our throats. That's my biggest hunch about the rumored Win8 Update 2 Start Menu.
