    Windows 10 icons


    Can I use classic icons on the start page instead of tiles? I do not like the tiles.

    Welcome to 10F rilbet2 !

    You could look into the following link, it's a heck of a lot of work though, and only for Win32 programs.
    I always wanted to try it for Windows 10 but never got around to it. If you try one and it works, post your results and, happy computing!

    What do you mean, "classic icons"? Where?

    I don't use the "tile apps" either. All I do is unpin them and forget about them (I also uninstall all the ones that I can).

    What "icons" are you talking about, exactly?

    When I say " Classic " icons, I mean the icons that were used for many years before Windows 8 tiles came along.

    I think the OP means; rather than tiles (1), they would like just icons (2):
