Customizing the Windows 10 Start Menu
The Windows 10 Start Menu is a big improvement over previous Windows versions and is relatively easy to customize. Here are some things you can do:

  • Resize the Start Menu - You can resize the Start menu making it so that it only takes up a small corner of your screen, or as large as your entire desktop. Just drag from the corners.
  • Live Tiles in the Start Menu - If you're coming from Windows 8, you know about Live Tiles, the interactive and updated "icons" used to display information like weather, news, and more. Luckily, they're now contained within the Start menu.
  • Remove Live Tiles from the Start Menu -If you're coming from Windows 7, not only are Live Tiles new, but they may not be all that useful. Luckily, it's a simple process to not only remove them, but to slim up the Start menu so it more closely resembles the view you're used to.
  • Move & Resize Tiles in the Start Menu - Live Tiles can easily to be moved and resized to your liking so that the information you want is just where you want it. To move a Tile, simply click, hold, and drag it. To resize a Tile, right-click on it, then choose a size from the "Resize" option.
