Many users are interested in getting rid of all the live tiles and Metro style apps from the Windows 10 Start Menu and resize it to a single column. That makes it look like the classic single column Start menu from previous versions of Windows like Windows 95 or Windows 2000. Today, we will see how it can be done.
With Windows 10 build 10130, Microsoft has rolled out a new way to navigate installed apps. Many users who have installed the released Windows 10 build 10130 and saw the screenshots we posted are curious how to activate the navigation by alphabet in Windows 10 Start menu. In this article, we will show how it can be done.
In earlier builds of Windows 10 such as build 9926, there are 2 Start Menus. One of them which could be activated with a simple Registry tweak and was resizable. The other is the "Continuum" (Tablet Mode) Start menu. But this ability is not present in the freshly leaked Windows 10 build 10036. The previous Registry trick does not work, so you only have the new Start menu, which can be switched to a full screen mode.
