    Anyway to revet start menu to pre-anniversary upgrade?


    Is there some way to do this? because I really despise how they have it now, I'd rather my programs remain hidden unless I click the thing to show them. Any idea if this can be done? its driving both me and my mother nuts with how they changed it. Its one of those: It wasn't broke so it didn't need to be "fixed" type situations.

    Also did MS remove the ability to remove those stupid things like the xbox app and such? I've tried various ways but none of them seem able to uninstall it.

    Not with out using a 3rd party program like Classic Shell.
    Why dont you use the feedback hub and tell them you want more control over the start menu.

    I vote for Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements
    This can make the start menu and other menus look like Windows 7 and it can be edited to your liking. This is the first thing I do when I upgrade or install Windows 10.

    Short of installing a 3rd party Menu or reverting back to an older Build, No.

    Here's what you can do though;
    Uninstall apps using Option 2 or 3 here:

    Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    then, create your own self titled shortcuts and folders for the default menu:
