Navigating Windows 10 Start Menu


How do I use the Windows 10 Start Menu?


  • Microsoft Windows 10


Click the menu button in the bottom left corner. Looks similar to a window. 

Some of the differences are:

  • The layout of the menu
  • Some menus are replaced with easy to find settings. 
  • The search bar is fixed in on taskbar.


  • On the left-hand side of the menu will be most of your setting options. A brief description is below (going from top to bottom for the options): 
    • User account settings - Has some basic account settings. Also allows you to sign out or switch accounts. 
    • File Explorer - Used to navigate and manage the drives, folders, and files on your computer.
    • Settings - Has the basic PC settings.
    • Power - Allows you to sleep, shut down, or restart. 

  • The middle section will include your most used applications at the top followed by all programs by alphabetical order. 
  • To the right is where pinned applications display.
