Switch the Start Menu and Start Screen in Windows 10: Overview

            You have the option to switch the Start Menu and Start Screen in Windows 10. You can display either the Start menu within the Desktop or the Start screen over the Desktop. Windows 10 automatically picks either the Start menu or the Start screen for your device, based on the type of device it is. However, you can change this setting to manually choose either the Start menu or Start screen, if desired.

            To switch the Start Menu and Start Screen in Windows 10, you will need to open the “Settings” window. If using the Start menu, click the “Start” button and then click the “Settings” command in the Start menu. If you are using the Start screen, click the “Start” button, then click the Nav pane button in the upper-left corner, and click the “Settings” command in the Nav pane.

            In the “Settings” window that appears, click the “Personalization” button. Then click the “Start” link at the left side of the window to view the Start settings. To enable the full Start screen, click the “Use Start full screen” option to set the option to the “On” position. To use the Start menu instead, click the “Use Start full screen” option to set the option to the “Off” position. You can then close the “Settings” app window.

            You can then click the “Start” button to see either the Start menu or the Start screen, depending on your selection. Note that this change will remain in place unless you manually change the setting again.
