The Start Menu is back in Windows 10, but it's not your usual Start Menu. It can be confusing on how to customize it, since there is no easy to access settings icon or 'Properties' selection. Here's an overview on all the things you can do with it. Still wish you had a Start Menu like WIndows 7? Install Classic Shell instead (just disable the Classic IE and Classic Explorer items during installation)

  • One of the biggest changes in Windows 10 is the Start Menu is back, but vastly different than previous versions of Windows. Here are some tips on customizing it. If you'd rather have the Windows 7 style Start Menu, install Classic Shell (http://classicshell.net) Just be sure to UNCHECK the Classic IE and Classic Explorer choices during the installation. You only want Classic Start and Update. Click the White Window icon and select the WIndows 7 style. That easy!

  • Windows 10 has started to roll out. Wondering if you should update? We strongly advise businesses to wait a while to ensure their critical apps will work. Residential users should wait a month or two – allowing bugs found by early adopters to be fixed.

    If you DO choose to upgrade, be VERY careful! Microsoft forces your computer to start using all their built in apps for web browsing, pictures, music, and videos. They also, by default, opt you in to MANY privacy invasive options you have to turn off. You have to specifically UNCHECK those boxes during installation. Also, your default web browser will be set the new Microsoft Edge browser. If you prefer to use Chrome or Firefox, they will prompt you to make them default again – watch for it.
