    I Unlock the Taskbar, Pin programs then drag them around to how I want them displayed. It has become a bit different in Win10 [maybe in Win8/8.1, can't remember] but perseverance works.

Just got Windows 10 a few hours ago. I don't see how you pin icons for programs to the LEFT side of the start menu. I can pin things to the right side, but I don't want those tiles.
