Windows 10: This Is the New Win 10 Start Menu Launching with Anniversary Update
Like I was saying the only beef here is simply with the Metro tiles section I found an immediate solution for before even going with Start10. With Start10 I could have but didn't want the 7 Style menu since that would be rather redundant to start with but the new 10 style only without tiles thank you!
On the harsh reality side MS still has to suit both hardware platforms being the one item many have failed to take into account. Having more options for customization would of course be a nice incentive without having the need for any 3rd party wares while MS generally isn't that flexible. They simply toss in their limited number of options and call it a day.
Still not able to pin stuff on the left panel and get rid of the tiles? Still non-configurable?
Classic Shell it is.
Have you made any attempts at repair? Sounds like a bug was seen during an upgrade type install.

I actually loved 8.1 until I got my hands on Windows 10.

I agree, the start menu is pretty cool and I love it better than Windows 7, in my opinion.
Really wish we could get a hybrid of the Windows 7 start menu with the live tiles that Windows 8/10 has.
I use Stardock's Start 10 in favor of the new 10 version due to having the Modern without Metro tiles variant while the default for 10 leaves you staring at tiles. There was never anything wrong with the 7 Start except intended for 7.
8.1 was the "Some more progress has been made" go between stage from 8 to 10 and 10 is now where 8 should have been but MS pushed the unfinished form of dual platform OS out to keep the 2-3yr. new version schedule going that will no longer be the case. What that means is continued progress in making a working dual platform OS out of Windows as well as not simply stuffing Metro in your face turnoffs that made 8 a royal flop!
Aren't the Apps you Pin to Start or the Taskbar your most used Apps?
Recent / Frequent Apps adds no value for me.
This was true on Win7 too - the top level of the start was equivalent to Pin to Start, the 2nd level was equivalent to recent / frequent and he right hand side were system applets and user folders, on the bottom there was all programs. Vista, Win7, Win8 and Win10 Start menus aren't much different operationally, only the presentation differs.
Sure, there are puch notifications now, but I turn off live tiles - they just annoy me ... if I want to know the weather, I look out the window
Between the most used Apps pinned to the Taskbar, the Quick Access Menu (WinKey+X), keybd shortcuts I rarely go to the Start menu - perhaps for most used Apps Pinned to Start that are used less often
Ah well, the Start menu will always be a topic for discussion.
I agree, then you could have your menu any way you like it. Except they could add a windows 8 view.
I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which...

I seem to be unable to add any more programs to the listings of my start menu. The issue arose when I installed Office 2016. Access and Excel seemed to be added to the start menu listings. But the rest of the programs did not show up. The shortcuts...
At least I assume it launches on start up since when I try to run ccleaner it says it will have to close edge and is that OK, if I say yes it simply hangs up forever on trying to close it. Does it launch automatically on start up? If so can I...
