Having a more customizable Start menu tailored to our needs can help us work more efficiently in our daily lives, making it a truly useful element.

Organizing the Start Menu

Regarding the organization of the Start Menu, we find narrow panel on the left with logo Windows… Here we find the most important menu items such as account, settings and power options. v center-left we find a list with all applications. They are ordered by the ones we added recently on the back, and then they appear in alphabetical order. Finally, on the largest panel, occupying center right the one that contains colored tiles divided into sections and labeled as Create, Explore, etc.

When we run Windows 10 for the first time, this is the default aspect we’re going to find. While the customization options are not extreme, we can make some changes to improve your organization to make it more useful and accessible.

Changes to be made for optimization

Once we know how the Start menu is organized, we can start making some changes to improve its optimization and make it easier to use. We can start with changing its color next to the taskbar and window borders. This is what we can do in the Settings and Personalization menus, where we can choose the accent color that we like best. We can also include both the home page and the taskbar and activity center. transparent

Mosaics are an important part of this menu. We can bind application in the right pane as a mosaic by simply right-clicking on it and choosing Anchor at Start. We can also resize tiles. To do this, we right-click on any of them and use Resize, being able to choose between Small, Medium or Large. If we want to move them, just press and hold while dragging them to another part of the menu.

If our Start menu is too busy, we can expand it again from Settings under Personalization by activating Show More Tiles. These tiles can also be grouped into folders. To do this, simply drag a tile onto another tile to create a folder. This way we can arrange the mosaic by theme.

If, despite the changes, we still don’t like our Start menu, we can always restore menu style Windows 7 … To do this, you only need to open the menu, right-click on each tile and select the undock option to remove them from the menu. Once this is done with all the tiles, we have a more classic Start menu again.
