    How to Turn On or Off to Use Full Screen Start in Windows 10

    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off to use full screen Start in your account in Windows 10.

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14328, Microsoft has brought back the full screen All Apps list while using full screen Start.

    Note   Note
    When Start is full screen, it will show more transparent without the blur effect.

    If you have tablet mode turned on, Start will always be full-screen until tablet mode is turned off.

    In 10240 if I do "Use start full screen" on I don't get transparency as per picture in the tutorial (but with the default off I do get transparency).

    In 10565 it works as expected (both use transparency).

    Is this an issue with 10240 or with my set-up? Does anyone get transparency on RTM full screen start menu?

    Hello halasz,

    In build 10240, Start full screen will only show the Hero wallpaper behind it, without transparency.

    I just tried it out for the very first time, since using Windows 10.
    Great animation in my opinion, and I like how when I click something the animation "pushes it" open to desktop. But also the All Apps is larger and easier to read. The background blur is just right too(almost like Ubuntu's)...

    I think I'll leave it this way awhile.

    Ok followed instructable, I have 'Classic Start Menu' & with it there is an icon on the start menu to switch over to the new Win 10 start screen in full screen..., which I then dragged onto the task bar for very quick access to it.

    My question now is how to pin the Start Screen permanently to 'one' desktop so it stays open, like it used to be in Win 8?
    Could there be a legacy registry entry from Win 8's Metro screen?
