With the recent arrival of the new Windows 10 January Preview, a number of new features and changes came included. One new change is the Start Menu, which for some has become a pain to use with the new Continuum mode. Luckily, the code for the old-style 9879 Start Menu is still present, meaning it can be re-enabled with one simple registry tweak.
Just follow the steps below:
- Right click on the Start Button and select "Run"
- Type "regedit"
- Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advance
- Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value, call it "EnableXamlStartMenu"
- Restart Explorer
