    Full Screen Menu in windows 10 (1709) not behaving.

    Hello, just installed the latest Win 10 1709 and I am having a problem with my default start menu layout, even though I have selected 'use full screen' it shows only the pinned tiles display, I have to manually select full screen view from the 3 buttons on the left, the view I selected (to show all apps) doesn't present itself as my preferred view by default every time I go to the start, could someone kindly shed some light on this please? I have googled this but cannot find an answer/explanation/remedy. Thanks in advance JRH.

    Hello JRH, :)

    By default, full screen Start always opens to "Pinned Tiles". You'll have to click on the "All Apps" button to toggle to see that instead.

    I'm not aware of a way yet to set it to open to specified default view instead.
