Some people who have upgraded to Windows 10 still prefer a more classic start menu, and Gizmodo takes a look at how you can bring that back using Start10 from Stardock.

"Start10 comes with a commendable number of options for you to play around with: there are actually three different looks to choose from (classic Windows, new Windows, and a fusion of both), and you can tweak icon sizes and colors as well as the appearance of the Start menu as a whole. There are even configuration options for your taskbar too."
