Hello, SahilQaiser. Welcome to Windows EightForums.
My WIn 8.1 'start screen'. The All Apps screen works well as a start menu in 8.1 (unlike W8).
Just as well, too, coss the Start Screen proper is as buggy as a flophouse mattress.
Just so I'm not misunderstanding. Are you saying that the All Apps screen in 8.1 is just as good as the old traditional Start Menu?
If that be true and just an idea > I know you are a power user > Would you think it be better if the All Apps screen appeared instead of the Start Screen? In other words, an option to reverse what is default. If so, would you think that would satisfy most power users?
I think is a general misconception that the Start Screen is the substitute for the traditional Start Menu, when in fact it is the All Apps screen that is. The Start Screen is a personally configurable touch-centric launching screen. That is it's main purpose (but not its sole purpose).
Lol! I love your Aussie jargons! They are quite descriptive.Just as well, too, coss the Start Screen proper is as buggy as a flophouse mattress.
It's not as good yet, but is a step in the right direction, IMO.
You can set 8.1 to go directly to it instead of via the Start Screen (right-click on taskbar>Properties>Navigation), which I find far more useful. It will satisfy many, but not all, I suspect. I quite like it.
As for the bugs, Pin to Start doesn't always work, and some stuff from All Apps won't transfer to the Start Screen. No biggie, I'm using Quick-Launch for te ones that won't pin.
Agree, but it was such a PITA to use it as such in W8 that I doubt many even bothered. 8.1 is much better.I think is a general misconception that the Start Screen is the substitute for the traditional Start Menu, when in fact it is the All Apps screen that is.
Hopefully I did the attachment right heres my start screen
Thanks for answering and the navigation setting info, Wenda.
I think there is much improvement.
