    Really wish we could get a hybrid of the Windows 7 start menu with the live tiles that Windows 8/10 has.
    I'm probably the only one who hates the tiles and does whatever is necessary to keep from ever seeing one. Classic Shell is a huge help.

    I always did whatever it took to stay away from anything resembling the very annoying Windows 7 Start menu.

    Well yes I don't like the tiles. I use Classic Shell and I still use the quick launch tool bar. Right next to the quick launch tool bar I have an link to the original 10 startscreen, just incase I ever feel like checking out these live tiles. I did actually use one that I created for awhile "Gas Buddy" . Alas I finally decided its just as easy to check local gas prices with my phone and haven't used the startscreen since.

    I agree, then you could have your menu any way you like it. Except they could add a windows 8 view.
    Why would they bother pay to buy something to deviate from their "vision" of a common interface across all devices - more to maintain etc.?

    From their viewpoint, it adds no value (and I have to agree with that probable viewpoint).

    The cost of buying it is next to nothing - you are lucky they allow you to use such tools - they could lock it down so it is not possible.

    There is a W8 view, it's called Tablet mode but it's locked on desktops, all they have to do is to unlock it, no need to invent hot water again.

    Go ahead, change it. I don't use it anyway, except to launch the Settings options. I keep everything else on Quick Access Popup and Blanch.

    Its actually not locked on desktops. I have a desktop computer and I just tried Tablet Mode and it worked perfectly. Kind of funky.

    I love the tiles on the start menu as clicking on them to bring up my apps reminds me of when i ran a mac and had a dock...so i think tiles are really cool...
