    or you can just install " Start Is Back " and you go back to Win7 style ... gets rid of all those stupid tiles .. and you can choose the style of your start button.

    I happen to like Classic Shell. When I got my first computer that came with Windows 10 it took most of one evening to find it. Been using it ever since. The individual who originally developed it quit making any additional changes but it still works fine. Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements

    Haven't tried that Start Is Back is freeware for basic.. does everything I require.

    pick the background color

    size of fonts

    style of folder/programs icon

    start button thru all win version from Vista (ugh)

    and others I can't remember right now.

    Sounds about the same as Classic Shell
    Classic, pre Windows 8, desktop
    I get to use my own selection of wallpaper
    Choice of original Win7 start menu, Classic Start Menu or Classic Start Menu with 2 columns
    Choice of 2 Start Buttons or you can design your own
    I know what you mean about those stupid TILES.

    The other thing I didn't like was what ever happened to the classic Windows games? If I wanted to play Xbox games I would have bought a Xbox.

    You mean the old XP games like Freecell and Spider Solitaire? Somewhere I have a flash drive with all of them on it. Now you've made me want to play Freecell...

    I quite like Windows 10 the tiles can be removed by right-clicking and remove this tile or something like that.

    I think a lot of these start is back programs were written for Windows 8 because it didn't have a start button as we were used to, clicking the start in win8 bought up a screen full of tiles.

    The pc I use came with win8 which was upgraded to win7 24 hours later
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.
