Besides the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has changed the display of Start menu. They’ve tried to have a great combination between the Start menu on Windows 7 and the Windows 8 Start Screen. There are a lot of people who use the PC very interested in this comprehensive changes of Windows 10. However, we understand that some peope those who get used to and be familiar with this Start Screen on Windows 8 will not be happy with this change.


And it must be amazing when Microsoft allows us to switch between the two interfaces Start Menu and Start Screen extremely easily than ever before. It takes less than one minute to experience the so familiar Start Screen on Windows 8.

Yes! After login to Windows, you will immediately see the Start screen. Can you remember it? I actually enjoy being able to detect this return.
