    Hell Freezes Over: Users Now Want the Start Screen in...


    Posted: 22 Dec 2014
    If youíre a long-time Windows user, you most likely know that, when Windows 8 came out, the whole world was complaining that Microsoft removed the Start menu, which suddenly proved to be one of the most popular features of Redmondís operating system.

    So after a couple of years of struggle, Microsoft finally decided to bring the Start menu back in Windows 10 with a modern twist, mixing the traditional design with live tiles that were previously exclusively available on Windows 8.1.

    Guess what happened next! Some of the users who had previously blasted Microsoft for removing the Start menu no longer want it back and call for the company to keep the Start screen available in Windows 10.

    I'm not surprised at all. But I wonder if you can take the 4,500 votes for the start screen as a majority wanting/needing it in Win10. I know that there are people who do need it but I would want to see it(start screen) as an option in addition to the new start menu.

    IMO I think MS should give us a choice between the start screen and start menu. If MS had given us a choice in 8, it would have been better accepted.

    If that had happen we would not be looking at Windows 10 for a few more years.

    With the start menu the way it is Microsoft might as well abandoned the attempt to bring it back,
    There are no real options putting icons on it makes no sense,
    Welding Bing search default on it really makes no sense :/
    All we/ I have ever asked for were options to change the freaky defaults I don't believe that's an unreasonable request ?

    That 4500 vote are amongst a technical few that have downloaded and installed the preview, thus giving them the privilege to "vote". If the voting were open to all users, not just these technical few, I'm pretty sure it would be a very different result.

    I did not open it Softpedia did. 4500 votes is only .3% of windows 10 testers not a very big vote.
