    Guidance needed


    I have set my desktop as I want it I don'tlike all those panels - some I guess I have to have.
    Now what I would really like is to click on Start and the on/off option/s to beat the bottom instead of having to click the three small bars at the top left handcorner to bring those options up see pic

    @ICIT2LOL you are using the full screen Start if you want to see all of the options pictured in your first post without clicking the bars at top (Hamburger Menu) then turn off the full start Screen option in Settings > Personalize > Start, You can also Add/Remove folders from the list.

    PS: The dark theme is Edwin's registry edit and not the default white color.

    @ ICIT2LOL :

    These are the buttons you should see with the Menu 'Restored Down' and 'Full Screen' respectively:

    @ICIT2LOL You do understand you are running build 10130, which is an old build, while the latest build is 10162, right? You don't have what @Edwin have, because this feature is not included in build 10130. You can (and should) update to build 10162 if you this feature.

    Sorry for late reply you folks as I am not used to having to check in to see replies yet - used to the old email system of 7.

    Now the new build is that an update? or do I have to get it from somewhere??
