    How to enable an early version of the new Start Screen


    Posted: 14 Nov 2014

    We recently discovered the beginnings of what appears to be the new Start Screen / Continuum mode in the most recent Windows Technical Preview. The Start Screen, being very early in development is very buggy and broken, however we understand that some of you wish to try it out.

    Thanks for the link, IT. :)

    It looks interesting with the All Apps at the left if that's what it ends up that way. It's basically the 10's Start Menu full screen.

    Not willing to try it as of yet since it's that buggy. You can try it on one of your test machines to let me know how it goes though.

    I'll try it out on a VM in the morning so it won't be a loss as I can copy it beforehand. I'll take some screen shots and post them. I'll need help from those of you who use the 8 version.

    That's interesting. There's a full screen button on the top. Does it?

    Wondering what the numbers are in the tiles.

    Thanks for this. :)

    Only clean install will fix that problem.

    OK I tried it on a VM and got nothing. A tiny little window at the bottom of the screen I could not do anything with. Do not try this at home on your main system. It is not working very well if at all.

    Thanks IT.

    Lol! "Do not try this at home".

    I'll continue to use and learn the new Start Menu then.
