Windows 10: Installing software in Desktop vs Start screen mode

    Installing software in Desktop vs Start screen mode


    I was thinking about installing Start8 to my start Screen, but would it conflict with my Desktop mode, OR

    are Start Screen and Desktop like 2 different and separate users? Because I don't understand the purpose of logging off and on to switch modes, if it isn't separate?

    Thanks I did that and it works great ....

    What I did was installed Start8 which removed the new Desktop menu while starting in Start screen mode but adding the toggle allows me now to switch between all 3 menus
