The new view comes courtesy of an update to the App list in build 14942.
Hide app list on Start: We are releasing a new feature that enables you to collapse the app list in the Start menu. This has been a top feedback request from Windows Insiders. You can try it out by going to Settings > Personalization > Start and turning on “Hide app list in Start menu.”
For some Windows users, the clean and functional look of the updated App List may be just enough to entice them to upgrade from older versions of Windows.
Let us know what you think about the new tweak as well as showing us your updated Start Screen in the comments below.
