    accessories e.g mspaint


    Miss accessories / paint and a few others
    paint is not under programs or apps
    need a quick way of pulling it up for Ctrl-V
    after PrtScn -- why does win10 take away our tools?
    or is it that 90% of folks don't know what Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V do?

    Paint is listed in the All Apps, Windows Accessories group along with Notepad, Wordpad and others. Mine shows on the Start button, Most Used list due to the frequency I use it. It can be Pinned to the Start or Taskbar, I pinned mine to the Taskbar.

    Until you get used to the new start menu, try looking in the actual start menu folder for All users / All apps

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    You could create a toolbar that points to the All Users Start menu:

    Right click the Taskbar
    Expand the Toolbars > menu
    Select New toolbar ...
    Paste the All Users Start menu location into the folder field:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Click image for larger version.

    Press the [ Select Folder ] button.


    You should now have a Programs toolbar on the Taskbar.

    Some people find the Programs Toolbar easier to navigate.

    That's a great workaround slarty
    truth is I don't want to get used to the new start menu
    it offers me nothing useful at all, as in above pic
    I don't, nor never will use anything in that window
    so the 1st thing I'll do with the final windows 10 release is either your method
    or some other at getting my programs back in the way i want to see and use them .

    Happy with this formula Win 10 = Win7 + faster boot up

    Glad I could help smileye,

    When I first installed Win8, I removed (right click a tile/icon, select un-pin from Start) all of the MS 'bloat' from the Start menu, then I pinned what I used most frequently. That essentially gave me what Win7 has for pin-to-start.

    With Win10, I've completely revamped the way I organize things.

    It's just a matter of personal preference, which ever way makes you comfortable and productive is the correct way

    Take a look at Stardock's Start10 which is available as a 30 day trial. Looks and feels just like Start8 which looks and feels just like the Start menu in Windows 7.

Solved Internet Explorer has been moved to the Accessories folder in 10049.
I have previously read on windows10update that Microsoft was planning to move IE to the accessories folder, and remove its shortcuts on the taskbar and start menu. I thought this would only happen in a future build... But it's already the case...
