    That's the start menu.. not the old start screen from WIn8 days.
    Very Funny. tomatoes tomatos. If it boots to a screen, whatever you want to call it, it is a start screen.

    btw, unless someone can confirm that the menu in whatever form, is Win32 code,
    based on the semantic zoom feature, and tiles / app integration,
    the NEW windows 10 start menu is nothing more than an updated METRO UI. (WinRT)

    The only way I can think that you might be able to do that is if you get the registry keys that cause the Start screen to show and put them in the default user profile's ntuser.dat. That would (potentially) make it the default setting for new users, unless there is some new-user process that runs to undo the setting.

    The start menu is Metro code, not Win32 code. You're right.

    Yup, tablet mode for persistence.

    Registry key for startup.

    Or put this code in a .vbs file and have it run on startup. (It sends a Windows Key press!)

    Code:
    set wshShell=wscript.createobject("wscript.shell")
    wshShell.sendkeys "^{ESC}"
    set wshShell=nothing

    No, it's called Start and when full screen it's the Start screen.

    It's always called Start in Win10 though
    it has an All apps list, a frequently used folder list, and a Frequently used app screen.

    Answering NavyLCDR ... there used to be a setting in Taskbar propertites that did exactly that - sign-in to Start or Sign-in to Desktop. That came from Win8 and MS removed it in Win10

    I suspect that option will reappear on some setting category (Personalize > Start maybe ) soon after Launch.

    Thank you all for at least confirming that nothing on my Windows 10 is messed up and it's just something that Microsoft took/left out.

    Thats the start menu. You could try my solution but it has a slight delay, depending on your computer speed.
    Thanks. Your solution does work - now if only the screen would return after running a desktop app.
