Tip of the Week: If You Prefer Windows 8’s Start Menu, You’re In Luck!

Tip of the Week: If You Prefer Windows 8’s Start Menu, You’re In Luck!

When Windows 8 launched, users of the operating system were all up in arms because they deviated from the Start menu that we know and love, in favor of a tiled menu screen. While many people went out and found the extension that turned tiles into the classic Start menu, others got used to working with the tile menu. With the release of Windows 10, the Start menu was back as the primary interface. If you’re one of those who adapted and enjoyed the tile menu of Windows 8, we’ve got good news: The tile menu is available on Windows 10!

To begin, access your PC settings in one of a couple of ways. The first method is to access the Start menu and select Settings. It’s the icon that looks like a gear - second from the bottom on the list of icons above the Start menu. Also, you can just press Windows key and the I key for a keyboard shortcut. Next, you’ll want to access Personalize > Start. Then scroll down until you see the option ‘Use Start full screen’. Click that to ‘On’.

Okay, so it might not be exactly the same as the Windows 8 home screen but it does have many similar features and functions. There is access to your favorite applications and new menus. Also, for those who have tablets that run the Windows 10 OS, tiles can be a bit easier to handle when reduced in size. To change the size of the Start menu without going to the full size, open your Start menu and click on the edge. Click and drag your Start menu’s edge to resize the menu and add or subtract new tiles according to your own preferences.

Especially when your business relies on computers for daily operations, customizing them to your preferences can boost productivity, not to mention make your work day a bit more pleasant. Which version of Windows does your business use? Are you a fan of the traditional Start menu? Or do you like the newer tile form? Let us know!
