The Big Four

This is the most frequently used section. It is present towards the left side and is off white in colour.

  1. File Explorer- By using this you can check the folders that you work on most of the time.
  2. Settings- It is a bit similar like ‘Control Panel’. It offers some very significant things like gives you the ability to do modification in the desktop wallpaper or themes, etc.
  3. Power- It comprises of the same three options. They have been mentioned below
  4. Sleep
  5. Shut Down
  6. Restart

Luckily, it is the same as earlier. Most of the users are super happy that it is the same because now they will not have to get used to the new positioning.

  • All Apps- You press on it to look at all the apps on your device. It is nicely organized and helpful as it has the list of applications in alphabetical order. It is a bit same like it was in older Windows.

Most Used

Immediately on top of the ‘collection of four’ is the list of ‘Most Used’ present. This is completely same what it sounds like, the things that you use most of the time. It can be MS Excel, MS PPT or  Calculator.


Towards the right side is the ‘Live Tiles’ portion situated. It is a bit same as the Live Tiles in Windows 8.

  • The major difference between the two is that in Windows 10 it cannot be placed outside the menu. It is a remarkable feature as it will not get collected into the desktop unnecessarily.
  •  However, it can be shifted from one place to another in the menu and change its size the way it used to happen in earlier Windows.
  •  So you can even say, in Windows 10, the Live Tiles recognize their home to stay very nice.
