    No worries, I figured you just carried away and it was a typo.

    Definitely got a bit over excited there, and carried away!

    That's what comes of posting at 3:24 am Perth West Aussie.

    Gotta say I'm really liking W10, and while I can work with the start menu, even so, I still think W7 Start menu is the ultimate efficiency for a Start menu.

    I'm running it on an old 500GB eSATA spinner HD, and I'm really impressed with the speed ... very snappy!

    And I don't even need to manually set a DNS address for IE11 to work properly!

    I could likely get used to Windows 10. I wish the Start Button did what the Hamburger Icon does though. Or it had an option to use the Windows 8.1 Start Screen/All Apps screen instead of the Start Screen/Start Menu.

    I wrote some feed back on it, saying they should put the tiles on the left and the apps, settings and pinned folders on the right and add cascading flyout menus. Like this concept menu:

    That start menu looks quite interesting. One of the things I miss is being able to send shortcut icons to desktop from start menu items without having to go to folder/file location to do it. It's cumbersome.

    In truth I hardly ever use apps. And I don't use social media like Facebook, nor weather, news, etc. I have all those apps on my iPhone and it's quicker and easier to use than my desktop. Westpac bank even has an app that allows you to see your balances on accounts without even logging in.

    Having said that though, there are many, many things I can do on my desktop PC that are either very cumbersome or impossible on a smart phone. And especially things like tax file work, etc. No way I could survive without a desktop.

    A hammer for a nail & a screwdriver for a screw... the right tool for the job. That goes for Electronic Data Processing too.

    Well said Cliff. And I would add, each to his own preference ... what works for you.

    For example, I often have multiple files/folders open on desktop simultaneously, and that's why I don't pin stuff to the bottom task bar. It gets too cluttered and hard to locate and quickly swing between open folders.

    This is a pic of my start menu. Note it has a shortcut in right panel to User folder, which includes AllApps, (when set with hidden folders showing).

    Windows has the tools built in. Others would have used one or two 3rd party docks to sort and arrange, but that is useless when you have files open, covering the desktop really. Your solution is elegant and effectual.

    Yes, Windows 8.1 is difficult to beat with what you speak of. Most of all I miss the Charms. A much better way to navigate.

    You don't like the Start Screen/Start Menu combo even at full screen?

    Thanks Cliff. I'm open minded and willing to try new ideas, and if something works better than what I've got, I'll use it.

    I have a tertiary qualification in electronic engineering but only got it because I was flying radio control model planes and wanted to know how to design and build circuit boards for the control system to incorporate auto fail-safes for when the batteries became low on power, or the plane accidentally got out of range of the transmitter, so it went into a controlled glide with the motor on idle. As well as auto-manoeuvres, like loops, rolls, etc. But the Japanese manufacturers beat me to it and it became standard on most decent remote control systems.

    I never really got into personal computers, (aside from some basic writing of programs back in the eighties when I got my qualification), until Windows 8. And everything I know I've learned from hands on experience and forums like this. So I definitely can't claim to be an expert on PCs. Which means I am limited to knowledge of things I was directly involved in, not systems at large.
