Windows 10 RTM to come with resizable Start Menu

Windows 10 logoThe very first technical preview builds of Windows 10, which came out in early October 2014, had some pretty neat options that allowed users to resize the Start menu and thus enabled them to tweak it in a way that would better address the size of their screens.

This feature has been removed in newer preview builds of Windows 10, but it looks like the company is working to bring it back in the final version of the operating system scheduled to be unveiled later this year, most likely in August.

Gabriel Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, confirmed in a short tweet that the resizable Start menu would come back in Windows 10, but no other details were provided.

Most likely, the company is working to make this feature available once against in another technical preview build in order to test it before releasing it to users, but some other tweaks for the Start menu are also expected to be introduced very soon.

Windows 10 RTM to come with resizable Start Menu

In Windows 10, the Start menu and the Start screen are no longer offered as separate features, but instead they’re both mixed into the same package, so users can more easily choose the one they need.

The Start menu is turned on by default on Windows 10 PCs, but with the press of a button, it automatically expands to a Start screen and takes over the whole screen.

The design of the two is very similar, and both come with live tiles that were previously available in the Windows 8 Start screen. Transparency is also offered in the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview builds and is expected to be part of the final version of the operating system as well.

Windows 10 is projected to hit the shelves in the second half of the year, whereas RTM is scheduled for June, according to sources close to the matter.
