The Start Menu is back and more customizable than ever.
Microsoft confirmed in April that the Start menu would be coming back, but the Sept. 30 preview event offered the first look at how the feature will work. In Windows 10, the Start menu has two columns. On the left, users will find a list of frequently used apps, shortcuts to Documents and Pictures folders, and a link to an "all apps" view. The right side features a collection of user-selected Live Tiles. These tiles can be resized and moved around, which effectively makes the right column a smaller, more malleable version of the Win 8 Start screen. Users who aren't interested in Live Tiles can simply elect not to pin any to the Start menu. In fact, the entire Start menu is customizable. Users can make the columns tall and thin or short and wide, for example.
