Windows 10 is an operating system that aims to  mimic operating systems we use on our tablets and smart phones. While it takes some getting used to, as all new software does, on a touch screen computer, it’s easy to manage. You have the same swipe ability that many of us have become used to on our tablets and smart phones. On systems without a touch screen it can be more cumbersome to sift through. We have users who really became upset when the Windows 10  Operating system was first uploaded. They literally could not find anything on their laptop or desktop.

Removing some of the confusion is a relatively easy fix, however.  You can simply reconfigure how the screen looks at startup. There are some of our users are more comfortable with Windows 7 style home screen so they usually chose this option;

First posted on Cnet by Lance Whitney:

“Your device will determine whether the Start menu or Start screen is the default option in the new version of Windows. On a PC, the Start menu will be turned on by default when you log into Windows 10. On a pure touch-screen device, such as a tablet, the Start screen will be the default.

Let’s say, the Start menu is the default option on your device.

  • To make the Start screen the default instead, click the Start button and then click the Settings command.
  • At the Settings window, click the setting for Personalization.
  • At the Personalization window, click the option for Start.
  • In the right pane of the screen, you’ll see a setting that says “Use Start full screen” that’s currently turned off. Turn that setting on so the button turns blue and the setting says “On.
  • Now click the Start button, and you should see the full Start screen.
