The Start Menu

Windows 10 has returned the start menu back to its original position, lower left corner of the window. But rather than focusing on desktop apps alone, Windows 10 Start Menu uses Metro Start Screen’s functionality, tiles of Windows 8-style, immediately to the right of desktop app shortcuts. You can choose to disable the Metro Style completely or even re-size the set of tiles. You can also choose to open it in a full screen view. It means, the Start Menu is going to be provided with lots of customization.

Desktop Metro Apps

You’ve noticed in Windows 8 that all the Metro Apps when launched covers whole of your desktop area. But in Windows 10 Metro App will be launched as any other Desktop App that can be resized or minimized. It has a toolbar at the top like in all other apps. But you can’t cut or paste data from a Metro App to any other App.

Continuum

Yes, Windows 10 is vastly improved on PCs, but Microsoft didn’t forget about touch screen users. As of Build 9926, Windows 10 includes a handy “Continuum” feature that dynamically switches the interface between the PC-friendly desktop and a Windows 8-like mode that’s better suited for fingers, depending on how you’re using the device.

Action Center Notifications

 Settings View

One of the odder design decisions within Windows 8 was the separation of Settings into two buckets, one each for the Desktop and Modern/Metro interfaces. With Windows 10, that goes away. Now, there is one Settings menu, available from the Start button. As a bonus, the somewhat annoying Charms menu has vanished.
