    "Start Menu" Tab has been completely removed from taskbar properties dialog in final version of Windows 10. However, the dialog title still says "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", even though one can argue that the dialog no longer has anything relevant to Start Menu.

    But is there a "Show search button" checkmark toggle? No! There's a whole separate menu item for it, with two menu options, when a simple checkmark toggle would do the job!
    Well, a typical Windows 10 install usually has three options in that "Search" submenu: 1) show search bar, 2) show search icon, 3) hide. This is the reason MS made it a multiple-choice submenu instead of using a mere toggle.

    I don't know why yours has only two options instead of three.

    The inability to turn off the Alphabet in the Start menu. For gosh sake how hard is it for my eyes to follow along alphabetically to find the item I'm looking for. I don't need those giant Alphabet letters cluttering up the start menu. Yeah, I've read that they're more there for touch tablets than for people with a mouse so at least allow me to turn the damn things off and clean up the otherwise nice Windows 10 start menu.

    If you set taskbar buttons to "Combine when taskbar is full" or "Never combine", the icons of already-pinned programs animate weirdly when you first open or completely close them.Click image for larger version.

    This alphabet is meant so that you no longer have to follow down the list. Click on any letter and you'll get a grid of letters. Click on a desired letter and you will get teleported to all apps starting with that letter.

    My annoyance with the Safely Remove Hardware icon is that I'm no longer getting the "You may now safely remove the ..." message; it's just that the icon disappears when there's only 1 item, but remains if there's at least 1 additional item present.

    Update: Fixed, but only with a clean install. "Never mind" (Gilda Radner, SNL)

    It is very disorienting to have to click on a letter to then see your menu change to a grid of letters to then have to click on another letter to quickly see your menu change again and now you're at the new letter where you still have to look through the list to find the program you wanted to see in the first place.

    The optimal solution would be to make that an option (hell, leave it on as default, I don't mind having to click to turn it off) so that some of us can have a nice clean all programs (errr, all apps) section again.

    It's really no difficulty to turn my mouse wheel and end up at the desired entry on a start menu, and after a while it becomes sort of like muscle memory and you know how much you need to spin the wheel to get to the program that you want to access.

    I still firmly believe that it's more for ease of use on a touch screen. Although I don't have a touch screen, I believe it probably works a lot like the pad on my laptops to do things like scrolling lists etc, and I find using a pad horrible, so yeah on a touch screen it would probably be a blessing to be able to just touch the alphabet and quickly go to that section instead of trying to scroll down the list, but since I don't have touch pad it should never even be there in the first place. Just my opinion mind you.

    The other thing in W10 UI that annoys me is..... Oh crud a brain fart, I'll have to rethink what it was.

    Ah yes now I remember... It's the live tile menu sizing.

    If I want to have two small tiles in the first column all is fine, if I want to add a wide tile to the second column then I've got a small tile size next to it and I can't shrink the start menu down to the edge of the wide tile.

    It's like it's preset to show x amount of tiles in certain configurations and if you try to deviate from that it won't allow proper shrinking/expansion of the menu.

    The way that I think it *should* work would be to shrink it down to exactly the width of the tiles on it. So if you only have one column of small tiles the edge should be right next to them and not an extra blank space next to it.

    Perhaps if I remember I'll get a screenshot of what I'm talking about when I get home in a couple hours.
