When I sign in or close all applications on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start. This option bypasses the Windows Start screen and goes directly to the desktop whenever you boot your computer, close all applications or log off and sign back in. Show my desktop background on Start. Selecting this option mirrors your desktop background behind the Start screen tiles.
Show start on the display I’m using when I press the windows logo key. This option only applies to multi-monitor setups. Enabling it shows the Start screen on the currently active monitor, rather than defaulting to the designated main display.
Show the Apps view automatically when I go to Start. Enabling this option skips the Start screen’s main tiles and displays the full list of applications instead.
Search everywhere instead of just my apps when I search from the Apps view.
By default, searching from the Apps list only searches applications; checking this option extends the search to your entire computer. However, this entry is only available if you selected the previous option.
List desktop apps first in the Apps view when it’s sorted by category. This option gives priority to desktop apps in the Apps list, so if you rarely use the modern interface, you won’t dilute the list with modern apps you never use.
However, you may also want to tweak the tiles themselves, so continue reading.
