    Start For Windows 10

    Now I've gotten use to Window's 8.1 start menu if I upgrade to windows 10 will I be able to toggle between the actual start menu like windows 7 and the start menu that windows 8.1 has?

    Start screen theme.

    Windows 10 does not have Start screen. It has a Start menu, that can be either kept as a small menu or full screen.

    No Start screen as such in W8 or 8.1

    If you change the option to use the 8.1 Start Screen and still boot to the Desktop you may find that some of your startup programs won't run when you boot. You have to also boot to the Start Screen and then they will run OK at startup.
    Just one of the bugs with W10.

    Thanks Shawn. I knew you had written a tutorial on the subject but I could not find it. The search function on this forum does not seem to work yet.

    Update - the toggle works now. I wanted the 8.1 start mainly for the Apps. I have a hard time reading them on the new start. I wish that could be made a bit bigger. I have plenty of room on the 22" but it does not react to a bigger DPI. I also tried a few other settings in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display, but no success.
