Windows 10 - Start Menu

Start Menu was too much missed in Windows 8 because it was very difficult for users to navigate between Start Screen every time they have to move away from home screen to access Start Menu. It may feel awkward to most of the users who were huge fan of Start Menu custom but Windows 10 comes with all new Start Menu with new features which can be said as a modified version of Windows 7 Start Menu. Like Windows 8 Start Screen, Windows 10 Start menu will come with Live Tiles too. Users can easily customize it to either cover little portion of screen or cover half-screen. Designers have done very well in designing the brand new Start Menu, when you press press the windows button it will popup the menu, and at the right side of the menu you find programs listed which will be categorized like Windows 7; pinned programs will be at the top of the menu and later, most visited programs will follow it. On the right side, you will find the feel of Windows 8 Start Screen which will contain Live Tiles which can be customized same as Windows 8.

So, if you were great fan of Windows 7 Start Menu and loved Windows 8 Start Screen too then you will love Windows 10 too much.
