Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing your startup environment, part of Windows 10: Tips and Tricks.
- In this chapter, we're going to explore…my top 10 Windows 10 tips and tricks,…beginning with number one, the user interface,…which is a combination…of the old Windows Start button…in the bottom left-hand corner,…and the desktop environment that we're used to…in older versions of Windows.…And of course, if we want those Windows 8 tiles,…we can go to our Start button, give it a click,…and open up the Start screen.…Now from here, we have access…to our most recently used apps…so we can get back to them quickly.…
We also have tiles here that are grouped together.…You can see Life at a Glance, Play and Explore, et cetera.…Now what you see on your screen…is going to be different than what I see…because when we upgrade to Windows 10,…the way you had your previous version of Windows set up…is taken into account.…For example, on the task bar,…I can see a number of options that I had on my task bar…in my old Windows 8 environment.…They're there.…Of course, what you use most often…appears on your most used list,…and your tiles might look different, as well,…
