    Hi there

    While the menu switching (start menu / start screen) is great - there IS a snag. Once you do this you lose the old re-sizeable start menu (as build 9879). So if you applied Dave44's fix to get the OLD menu you lose it after using the toggle facility.The menu reverts back to the NEW one even after a re-boot.

    So if you want to keep the old re-sizeable menu then another work around needs to be found.

    Sorry Brink - but I can always "Break things" !!!!

    To change back to the re-sizeable menu simply change the dword in dave44's fix for re-sizeable menu to 0. I think Brink's change sets it to 1. Reboot and old menu is back. You don't have to uninstall Brink's fix so you can simply change the value to 1 again and re-boot if you want to have the dynamic switching mode.

    My main (and severe) beef with the new menu is the search does not work. On the old menu I type say word 2014 and I get the application without having to endlessly scroll to find it. The new menu - search doesn't do anything.

    Cheers

    Hello Jimbo,

    It wasn't a bug, but was done by design to toggle between the Start screen and the new expandable Start menu.

    I have added step 3 in OPTION ONE so that folks can choose to use step 2 for the new expandable Start menu or step 3 for the old resizable Start menu though.

    Yeah, I hear you, but it was indeed done on purpose originally to toggle between Start screen and new expandable Start menu.
