Start10
An alternative Start menu for Windows 10

Start10 is a very configurable Start menu alternative for Windows 10.

A quick and easy installation immediately gives you a Windows 7-style menu, complete with Search box, an "All Programs" menu, links to your Windows 10 apps, and no live tiles at all.

If that doesn't work for you, options to display the menu in a Modern or Windows 10 style might help it to fit in better with the rest of the operating system.

Each menu style can be tweaked in various ways. You're able to define a custom Start button, apply textures to the menu and taskbar, set icon and tile sizes, transparency, and more.

Start10 doesn't completely take over your system, either. If you've a problem with it, pressing the right Windows key or Ctrl+clicking the Start button will display the regular Windows 10 Start menu, and there are options to make this even easier (you could set the Start button to display Start10, say, while pressing the Windows key displayed the standard menu).

What's new in 1.60?

- Updated for Windows 1803 to fix searching in start menu
- Added new blur option for Windows 1803 (on by default)
- Links to the Games and Homegroup folders on Windows 1803 will not work(Microsoft deprecated those locations)

Verdict:

Start10 is easy to use, configurable and looks good. But if you're just looking for a simple Windows 7-style menu, Classic Shell may give you everything you need for free.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
