    Hello there! kishlay Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    Have you gone into the Start menu>Windows Accessories to look there at what has been included as well as installed? When at the MS online store the free apps will go right on and be available right away.

    click the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of your screen
    click on "All Apps" - calculator and camera, etc are all listed..

    - any that aren't there, can be obtained (mostly free) from the Store..

    Someone at MS had the brain storm to letter everything in the new Start menu where now you have to check for things under each letter rather then simply scrolling the list that had already been in alphabetical order. Accessories previously at the top of the list is now Windows accessories at the bottom before the X, Y, Zs!

    when you click start ,then all apps ,just click the letter A or the 0-9 and it pops up a small screen of letters and numbers ,click the one you want to go to ,no need to scroll

    That works as a shortcut when already knowing which letter to look under for something. What if you don't? You still up needing to scroll the list.

    Windows 10

    I find it easier to just start typing what you want

    open start menu then just start typing the app name, then hit enter on the one you want when it shows up

    if your looking ,then you must know what the program is called ,if it really hurt that much to have to scroll through a list to find an app, then just do what paulsalter suggest

    That would be with Cortana there.
