The most useful, yet most hated part of Windows 10, is probably the Start Menu.
It isn’t even close to the one which we have grown accustomed to since the days of Windows XP, and of course the much improved one in Windows 7.
The Windows 10 Start Menu is customizable to some extent but the changes you can make to it are very basic, and is actually the very reason why third-party Start Menu apps like Start10 is very popular. It even proves that users are willing to shell out some money for a premium app, just to get the basic functions back on their computers.
If only Microsoft realized this, more users would make the switch to Windows 10 happily. So, [...]

One of the problem with Windows 10 is the Live Tiles for Windows Apps (downloaded from the Windows Store/pre-loaded in Windows 10). Tiles can be found in the Start Menu, and are easily identifiable because they are usually animated (keeps changing the thumbnail). They can be annoying in two ways. First, [...]
Windows 10’s Start Menu is one of the key highlights of the operating system, and yet it is not up to the liking of many users, especially those who upgraded from Windows 7.
But for the people who like it, here is a bit of good news.
The recently launched Threshold 2 update, Windows 10 Build 10586 adds a pretty slick feature, which allows you to get more out of the Start Menu. The feature I am talking about. is the ability to add more tiles in the Start Menu.
