  2. Start menu is not working on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Iunderstand the frustration if things are not working fine as expected.

    Please help us with below details,


            • When you say "If I sign in under my user name I am in some earlier version", which version you are referring to?

            • Did you made any recent changes to your computer prior to the issue?

            • When you say “I cannot access the start menu and am limited to IP as a browser” Is it refers to Microsoft Edge?

    As an initial steps, I suggest you to check for the Windows version. To do so, follow the below steps:

    1) Login to your computer through user name on which it show earlier version of Windows.

    2) Press Windows key + r.

    3) Type winver, hit enter.

    How to disable User name from Start menu

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your description, I understand that you would like to remove user name from Start menu. 3

    I would like to inform you that this feature is by design and would not be able to delete the User name from the Start menu.

    I suggest you to post your valuable suggestions in Windows feedback app. So, that developers will try to implement it in future Windows 10 updates to enhance user experience.

    However you may, customize the Start menu tiles. Follow the below steps:

    • Type Settings on the search bar and select
      Settings.
    2. Click on
    Personalization and choose Start.

    Here you will be able to customize the Start screen as you wish.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
