I've no personal experience of these methods, so I can't say how good they are.

Thank God! Aug 12, 2016

After yesterdays Windows updating, the button start to work on its own. I have Windows 10 from day one and never encountered such a problem before.

Tip Aug 12, 2016

Install Classic Shell, and you have both: Start menu W7 and W10. Works like a charm.

I took a look and it seems to be a nice program. By the way, is their statement "Find programs, settings, files and documents" true? In Windows 10, this function has vanished and this is the only reason why I sometimes feel nostalgic about Windows 7.
