Windows 10: Start Screen Incorrect? Solved

    Start Screen Incorrect?


    I've used the no charge windows 10 upgrade on my Windows 7 system. Things went well and then I began to play around with things. (If it is not broke do not fix it) As a result when I boot the system I get the Windows 7 desk top. If I click the Start button in the lower left corner I get a tablet mode window. If I click the hamburger icon I get the windows10 default screen with most used and other listed items on the left side. How can I get this screen to be displayed when I click the start button on the initial screen? I fooled around with the setting tablet button but that did not correct the situation.

    As an 84 year old fussbudget I should learn my lesson and stop fooling with things.

    Any help I can get from any one will be greatly appreciated. I know I can get there by clicking a couple of buttons but I'd lit to get there in one fell swoop.

    Hello Don,

    Did you want to turn off full screen Start?

    What I wanted was a full screen start. It worked when I turned the button to the off position. Seems wrong BUT it does what I want.

    Thanks Brink. Don Jacobs
