Why Learning How To Disable The Full Screen Start Menu On Windows 10 (2020) Is Important:
Why Would Someone Disable The Full Screen Start Menu On Windows 10?
The Windows 10 operating system comes with the traditional start menu right out of the Box. When Windows 8 was released, Microsoft forced users into a full screen start menu. This start menu presented the user with many “tiles” they could choose from. Although this start menu was very obnoxious for many Windows users on desktop environments, it was a welcomed addition for those who utilized touch screen environments.
When Windows 10 was released, Microsoft gave the traditional start menu back to the user, but they didn’t completely remove the tiles. The tiles became an addition to the start menu. This allows users to take advantage of the tile environment when their device is touch screen. Users that use touch screen almost exclusively may find using the full screen start menu helpful. This full screen start menu gives the user far more space to work with and organize the applications on the start menu. If the user does not have a device that is touch screen, disabling the full screen start menu makes sense.
Can The Full Screen Start Menu On Windows 10 Be Reenabled?
As with nearly any setting in the Windows 10 environment, the full screen start menu can be enabled as easily as it is disable. To enable the full screen start menu, the user simply needs to reverse the steps above. For users who have touch screen monitors or are using a touch screen Windows 10 device, such as a surface tablet, I strongly recommend trying out the full screen start menu.
The full screen start menu may take some getting used too, but it can be extremely helpful to users who are looking to streamline their user application experience. The full screen start menu looks similar to the “launcher” on the Mac OSX operating systems. When the start menu comes up, the user is greeted with larger icons that represent all of the applications on the device. This can definitely streamline application usage on the Windows 10 environment.
