    They're still not getting it!
    What so many users would like, (among other things), is a customizable single column list Start Menu!

    (I would like to pin my choices to a single list, PERIOD! No tiles, unless I choose, no alphabet letters, no 'Most Used', no 'Recently Added' ......)

    Hello BmLava,

    The setting is set in the Data binary value in the registry key below, but it is a binary value that other settings use as well.

    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CloudStore\Store\Cache\DefaultAccount\$$windows.data.unifiedtile.startglobalproperties\Current
