3. Resizing pinned apps
You can resize a tile to make it smaller. Only apps downloaded from the Windows Store provide more resizing options, while other programs only have the option to go from medium to small. You can drag the tiles into the order as per your convenience.
4. Group and title
You can also organize tiles into groups. For instance, the groups can be renamed into categories. All you need to do is to move your cursor just above each column group and left-click once. This will allow you to type a name for the group.
5. All apps
There is a slight change in the way you access programs (which is similar to Windows 7) Windows 10 Start Menu. At the bottom of the Start Menu, is the All Apps tab that brings up a list of everything installed on your computer for wash and quick access.
6. Resize the entire menu
You can resize the Start Menu, if you feel that it is a little too big. All you need to do is move the mouse to the edge of the Start menu and left-click. You can now hold to drag and resize the Start Menu to the size you want.
7. Classic Windows 8 mode
Microsoft has the Tile menu covered in the new operating system like Windows 8. Just click the diagonal arrow in the top right-hand corner of the Start Menu. This will expand the Start Menu across the screen from now on.
8. Enabling Tablet mode
The desktop-like interface may not be right for you, if you have a 2-in-1 tablet. If you want to go back to a style more similar to Windows 8, click Settings from the Start menu, then go to ‘System’ and switch on ‘Tablet Mode’.
