    Me too!

    My set up:

    • StartIsBack legacy start menu.
    • Modern switched off totally.
    • Direct boot to desktop.
    • Icon short cuts on desktop to frequently used apps, USB, eSATA, optical drives & internal storage SSD HD.
    • Jump start for less frequently used.
    • Alpha numeric cascaded menu for infrequently used.
    • Quick launch desktop button to view when multiple windows open simultaneously.


    Works for me.
