There is a general perception about Windows 10 that this version of Windows is fastest and the best version ever. After using Windows 10, I came to the conclusion that It’s not 100% true. Windows 10 has also so many flaws like any previous version. Start menu in Windows 10 is an example to prove it.
But constant efforts made by Microsoft should be appreciated. That was why, before make Windows 10 available for everyone, In addition to other things Microsoft has taken so long to overhaul, make it look better, feel fresh the Start menu and added new features to Windows 10 start menu.
