    Referring to the beginning builds to the current one I don't see Microsoft as knowing where the heck the final will be
    They were closer at 9878 then now or even 9841 was closer,
    They've made a mockery of the start menu,
    Minus 26 letters and it might be okay.
    Make it ten times narrower or at least where the outside icon is and that might pass :/
    Put everything in the control panel.
    Get rid of all webcrap suggestions or at least give that choice on install.

    I've been trying to use the start menu's in each build, but am not seeing much progress. I prefer the W7 menu including the search that only searches my computer. I don't need the "everywhere" search.

    Unless MS comes up with something better, I will be going back to Classic Shell.

    You could still use 'Search' from the WinX Menu.

    I would never install junk like that to gum up my system.

    I think if people want to use Windows 7 they should keep using it.

    I hated WIndows XP and Windows 7. I loved Windows 8 and 8.1.

    The jury isn't in yet on 10, but I feel like Microsoft keeps getting dragged backwards. I want them to go forward.

    Hi

    For the first time since Windows 7 came out i'm not using a 3rd party app to access my start menu.
    While I'd still like to have the fly-out windows of Windows XP I can live with the native start setup in Windows 10.

    I do use Rocket Dock and have for many years which takes care of 90% of my day to day links.
    Anyone who hasn't tried it should at least give it a go.

    It's free and works great.
    Everything you need is one click away.

    Download RocketDock - RocketDock.com

    No thanks have one the Mac side of win 8.1, and really not a fan of it use Lunch Pad. . . (kind of like Start Menu).

    I have used object dock for a long time. No icons in view on my 7 desktop.

    It reeks of a company with only one product desperately trying to stay relevant when its obsolete.


    Sort of like car dealer associations suing to keep Tesla from selling cars online.

    Well, everyone is free to love or hate anything, but in my humble opinion XP and 7 were excellent operating systems. The point is that we need to choose between following the tech trend or become obsolete.
