Microsoft has brought about a significant change to Windows 10, which means it integrates the start menu into the new operating system. Microsoft has had many complaints from users about removing the Start menu in Windows 8, and it got it brought to the desktop users without dropping apps and features from the complete start screen full. This new addition will display the live tiles of the app on the right. While the left side is not touched, the right side contains selections of apps and their live tiles when you first boot into the system.
You can change your selection here, and this ranges from deleting all live tiles to completely removing from the computer to adding, moving, and deleting them from the interface. When the customization option is so useful, Windows 10 doesn’t have the opportunity to reset layers. But this can be done with a system reset or refresh feature, but the methods have side effects and are therefore not the first option.
