I often can't find the application I'd like to run in the WIndows 10 Start menu. Is there anything I can do to make it easier to find my application? If Microsoft did anything in its conversion from Windows 8 to Windows 10 they worked on making the Windows Start Menu easier to use in Windows 10.
You can make any application appear on the Start menu just find it in your list of applications, right click and you'll see an option to pin it to the Start menu. But even that isn't really necessary.
What Doug and I both like to do is just press the Windows key to bring up the start menu and then start typing the name of the application you'd like to use. For example if you want to start Microsoft Word just press the Windows key to bring up the Start Menu then type a W. You'll see a list of all the applications that include a W in their name and Microsoft Word should appear.
Well it pretty much tops on that list. You hit enter and Microsoft Word starts up. This is certainly the simplest way to begin applications running on Windows 10.
