Is the 'start' button the white windows icon extreme left?
Yes, that icon is the Windows 10 standard image, used during boot as well.
In reply to a post by TrishaH:
I use the start button a fair bit daily for searches, favourites and disk cleanup
Just click Start and type 'app name'
In reply to a post by TrishaH:
I use the Snipping Tool a fair bit too - does W10 have that?
Yes, as mentioned, just click Start and type 'snip', I've never used the tool but it's there.

It is not difficult to use if you use other versions of Windows, the start menu is not the best, to pin stuff on it like you do on Windows 7 you have the awful tiles, but you can get a third party start menu to make it more like Windows 7.
The settings are split apart, you have got the control panel and you have got settings, that is a bit of a pain.

The look of Windows 10 is not that nice, very flat and dull and also some things that are not finished, like the context menus.

My view and a lot of other people is that Windows 10 is still in beta and the wider public is being used as a test bed, also watch the spying in there, if you do want to have MS spying on you then turn everything off, like getting to know you and cortana. Best is to use third party software to do it.

Windows 109 is better than Windows 7 in that it is faster, runs smoother, have better memory management, but I do not think it have much advantage over 8.1 for joe public anyway

If you can't remember the name of the Program/App (only use it once in a blue moon) is there a list similar to "All Programs"?

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

Yes, just click "All apps" in the Start Menu.

And, if you can remember the first letter or two of the name, it is very simple to hone in on it.

Yep. I like how you can click (e.g.) the "A" heading to get "zoomed out" to a higher level, allowing you to "zoom in" to a specific letter.

In reply to a post by TinyMongomery:
I may be mistaken but it does sound to me as if you haven't actually tried Windows 10, which may explain some confusion.

Windows 10 can run in either desktop mode (as it would on a normal computer) when it acts much like any other version of Windows, or in tablet mode (as it would on a tablet) when it acts more like a tablet OS. And the great thing is that on these hybrids with detachable keyboards, or screens that fold back, it automatically switches to the appropriate mode.

All this talk of it being a "tablet operating system" is just that; just talk. That was certainly more true of Windows 8, but Microsoft have learnt their lessons from that.


I installed it in August on both my 6 year old desktop and my wife's 6 year old laptop - both Acers. No issues, just some settings and default programmes etc needed some fine tuning to suit our preferences.
