As the countdown begins for the Windows 10 release, let’s look at What Microsoft is doing to bring the users back into their comfort zone again, or what it calls ‘familiarity’ in Windows 10.

One of the most familiar features you already know that are back in Windows 10 is the missing Start menu and Start button in windows 8 and 8.1.

Whether you want your start screen as Windows 8 live tiles format or a simpler layout of Windows 7- the choice is yours.

Pin it for one-click access:

The enhanced version provides one-click access to the most used functions and files. Apps, programs, folders, people, or websites- no matter what it is- for an easy and fast access simply pin or unpin them to your Start menu.

Here’s what you’ll find in the Start menu:

Most used — Provides the list of apps that you use frequently.

Suggested/recently added — Directs you to new apps based off of your current collection. The new apps you install from Windows Store can also be seen for easy access or for pinning it to the Start menu.

Places — Provides you a faster way to access File Explorer, Settings, and Power.

All apps — a list of all installed apps, arranged for easy alphabetical browsing.

Get live updates with Live Tiles

Live Tiles deliver real-time updates from your apps right on your Start screen so you can easily see new email, appointments, and stay updated.

Keep the start menu clutter-free

If your Start menu looks cluttered, you can arrange the pinned apps into a group of similar items also. Just move a tile to an open space, and when a gray divider bar appears, release the tile. Then move more tiles in or out of the group to suit your needs.

You can also remove a tile by right clicking on the tile and selecting ‘Unpin from Start’.
