    Attempting to remove EDGE from the Start menu alphabetical listing


    Hi, i am currently working with Elitedesk 705 G3 mini and running Windows 10 Pro. I work at a prison and will be using these machines for inmate access, So I need them to be locked down completely. I have gone through the GPO and made a set for non-Admins and pretty much mirrored the same configs as the Windows 7 predecessor. I have removed all apps and access to settings on the user account and so far everything works like expected. My issue now is that Microsoft Edge is listed in the alphabetical listing of Apps and once opened a user can still get acccess to 'C' drive by typing C:\. Although once in the drive there is not much that can be accessed, modified or even deleted; I still would like to eliminate the option to view it. Any options or input would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Remove alphabet from App Listing on Windows 10 Start Menu?

    Very disappointed that I cannot remove this alphabetical listing entirely from the Start menu. It's clumsy and unappealing. I can already type what I'm looking for. That was convenient. This listing is ugly and irks me every time I hit the start button.

    Is there a way to turn off the alphabet in my start menu?


    Hey,
    So I generally like the W10 start menu with the exception of the alphabet soup in my all apps listings. It's making it look very cluttered and actually disorganized even though everything is obviously listed alphabetically.

    Is there a way to turn off the alphabet letters and just list everything that I have in there alphabetically without needing to show me
    A
    B
    C
    D
    E
    etc...

    ??

    Thanks

    Remove alphabet from App Listing on Windows 10 Start Menu?

    New isn't necessary better. With The All Apps menu we have a new case.

    The All Apps menu is too BIG, requires too much space for what it offers. Characters should be adjustable in size and the A, B, C ...Alphabet letters have no sense. I think everybody knows the alphabet except Microsoft developers.

    Also a functional organization, as it was possible under XP and Windows 7 is most wanted, an absolute must. An organization where the application itself is started or, if there are several choices, a sub-menu with applications and maybe new sub-menus. For
    me the preceding icon is more disturbing than helping. A switch to enable or disable that visual effect should be available.

    If Microsoft really wants its alphabetical order, a switch to classify the Apps list alphabetically should only be an option because operational applications are not suited to be forced being organised alphabetically.

    How can you be effective when having to search in an application list of (up to)512 entries, worser if the list would possibly become 2048 long.

    I urge to get back the old-fashion but effective All Programs approach.
