Windows 10 Will Get a New Start Menu
Microsoft has been teasing users with screenshots of its new Windows 10 Start menu. In all the screenshots we’ve seen, the live tiles have been turned off.
If you turn off live tiles in the current Windows 10 Start menu, you get an ugly solid block of color. In the new Windows 10 Start menu, you’ll have an icon placed in the center of a color-coordinated block — the color based on whether you’re using the Windows 10 light theme or dark theme.

The new Start menu also features new and redesigned app icons.
Microsoft says the reason for all of the changes to the Start is to unify the Start menu and make it more uniform and less chaotic.
The new Windows 10 Start menu will give users more control over the appearance, design, and the size of the Start menu.
When can we expect the new Windows 10 Start menu? Microsoft is not saying.
