    Have Start screen open with “All Apps” list already opened?


    Is there a way to configure Windows 10 to have the start screen open and have the “All Apps” list already open?

    The way it is now, pressing the Windows key opens the start screen with the “All Apps” icon and the “Sleep/Shut down/Restart” icon showing. I have to click the “All Apps” icon to open the list.

    :)

    How do I hide "all apps" menu on start screen?

    Hi,

    Is there any way to hide all apps menu on start screen like to the screen when I click 3 dashes on the left top corcer

    Whenever I open the start screen, it shows the all list of programs that I installed, but I already have personalized tiles on the right side. So I'm not using all apps list, and I do not want to see the list but rather my name and folders that I chose to
    be shown.

    Is there any way to do this?

    Thanks

    Windows 10 Start Screen

    I can open list of apps (start menu) but I cannot switch to the screen that lists all apps. settings, file explorer etc. I could do this at one time but not sure how I got there. If I click on the start it shows the power icon and an area when clicked
    on opens list of programs. A tutorial shows by clicking again on the start button the screen with all apps opens but that is not happening.

    Version 1607 Build 14393.105 does that, click Start and the full Apps list is scrollable.
    Forgot to add this screenshot:

    Sounds like you are still using Version 1511. Upgrade to 1607 and the all apps will be visible

    Why would you. Just pin what you want to the Task bar. If you want it to look like Windows 8 did in the beginning, enable Tablet mode. You can use Classic Shell or Start 10 if you want to do special things with the Start Menu and Task bar.

    Thanks all for the replies. I needed to update to version 1607.

    I don’t understand why Windows Update didn’t automatically update my PC for me. Also before I manually downloaded and applied the update last night, I went into Windows Update and clicked on “Check for updates” and was told my device was up to date.

    Did I miss a setting to allow automatic updating?

    Version 1607 is also know as Anniversary Update and seems to not being "pushed" as aggressively as Version 1511 was. The actual availability was on 8/2.

    Not every update is an automatic. If the OS does not see an update as a major change, it will hold it as a pending download under the changes that have been done with Windows 10.

    Microsoft is not pushing the update out to everyone quick this time. They are getting the bugs out of it before they push it out to everyone via Windows Update.

    There are still some users in my area that haven't gotten the upgrade option yet.

    Well I'm one of them; I have three PC’s running windows 10, two desktops and a laptop. All three were running version 1511 and “Check for updates” told me each one was up to date.

  12. I have Windows 10 AU 1607 in my Windows update screen with one for my Samsung phone... I did have a 3rd one, KB3150513 which installed itself overnight whilst the notebook was shut down,,, (fast boot shut down) This is the 2nd update I have had that has self installed overnight...

    I can confirm it does it when shut down as the last thing I did last night was check to see what updates were showing and it was there, but gone this morning as soon as I powered up...

    Why would 1607 not self install at the same time? unless it does it overnight tonight... Is that possible?

    Microsoft released the update to Microsoft surface products, then pre-installed systems, then released to retail people last.

    If for some reason, it's gone, then Microsoft pulled the update for some reason.

    You could download the media creation tool and update it right away if you choose.

    Yes, non of this makes any sense, that it's available for some, and not all. You would think that Microsoft would have enough bugs fixed to release to Windows Update. At least the Anniversary Update is able to be manually updated with no restriction.

    For some reason when they reinstated the Defer updates again, 1607 gets held because of some machines are telling Microsoft Update that there may be a hardware conflict or other conflict that does not show up. The logs get so long that no one really has the time to dig through them on random machines that are seeing 1607 as a deferred update.
