    Can't change my start menu


    Hi ever since I had first installed Win10 my start menu has looked like this,
    Can't change my start menu [​IMG]

    I thought nothing of it but my dad's start menu has tiles and things on it and I like it a lot more. But I have NO IDEA how to change it to that. Sometimes when I start windows the start menu will have the tiles look, but then it will change back to this one. I know there is something wrong because when the tiled start menu shows, my windows account photo is visible, and then when it changes back it has the little gray one that is in the screenshot, and I can't change it.
    Any and all help is appreciated, thank you!


    EDIT: Turns out it was Iobit bloatware called "Start Menu 8". If you have this problem also, just uninstall from control panel.

    :)

    Are you sure that you are not running a third party menu utility.

    That's definitely a 3rd party menu in your screen shot, check Programs and Features.

    I have seen a couple of computers that had the Upgrade done over Win8.1 and a third-party change carried over into Win10.

    Okay so it turns out that the cause was some bloatware from Iobit, "Start Menu 8".
    Thank you very much everyone!
    I'll edit this to my post in case anyone else has the same problem.
