    So have I. It has saved my bacon a few times when the start menu has gone on the blink. And to be honest, I have always found it very useful to have desktop shortcuts available.

    Mine are : Settings/ Control Panel/ Command Prompt/ This PC/ Notepad/IE11/Edge/Chrome/Office items

    I have to agree. Having the option from MS would be better than having to use a third party tool each and every time.

    I don't use tiles and likely never will, and my Win10 start menu is one-column wide--just the way I like it. I run most everything from desktop shortcut icons which I honestly think are so much nicer looking than those garish square tiles that Microsoft for some unfathomable reason thought were an "improvement"....;) Saints be praised that in Windows 10 Microsoft once again puts us in control of our GUI and lets the user do it his or her way--with or without tiles!...;) (I suppose we can be grateful for the serious mistakes leading to Windows 8/.1, because without them we'd not have seen a free Win10 upgrade...!)

    I still marvel at Microsoft's ability to forget its head when it isn't glued on, though--even now. Fresh off Windows 7, by far the most popular, best-selling OS Microsoft had ever launched up to that point in time--how did the company conclude that the original Windows 8 was the way to go? It adds new meaning to the phrase "throwing out the baby with the bathwater"...;) Delighted that all of Microsoft's tiresome having to relearn its customer base is behind us...!

    Tiles are really like Icons and you use those on your android and i phones all the time (or if you have ever used anything with a dock such as a mac computer) so i don't really don't understand the "anti-tile" thing i see here...I have used docks, so to me, the tiles in the start menu are just like using a dock and i am fine with it...

    I didn't like the metro set up on windows 8, but having tiles on a "start" style menu as we have in windows 10, i find, is very pleasant to use...

    I much prefer an arrangement I can organize exactly the way I want it.

    CountMike, with all due respect, what is a desktop program? I don't think that I have ever heard that term before.

    If you ever used Windows 8 you'd have heard it all the time!
