What's New in Windows 10 Classic Start Menu

The first thing that you are going to notice in Windows 10 is the, Start Menu. Yes, it is back now! And it is improved. You know have the old classic start menu, along with Windows App on the right side pane. The Shut Down menu has been added on the top of the Start Menu, for your convenient. Moreover, you can add more of your favorite apps to the right side pane, for easy access. Just right-click on an app, and choose “Pin To Start”, and it will get added right to your new Start Menu. If you want to add a lot more apps to the right of your Start Menu, then you can right-click on the icon, choose resize, and make them smaller, so the Start Menu may not get clutter with a bunch of icons. You can easily remove any app from the right pane of the Start Menu, just by right-clicking, and unpinning it from Start. You can even drag and drop the icons, and can place them to suitable place for easy access.
