Our beloved Start Menu is back in Windows 10. But many of you might be feeling nostalgic for Windows 7 Start Menu. Start Menu of Windows 7 was more thin, clean and clutter free. The basic factor which makes Windows 10 start menu apparently more congested is the fact that it has some built-in tiles pinned with it. These “Live Tiles” have their own peculiar and useful features and make you a fast and power-user of the system. For example, you have Flipboard, Office tiles pinned with Windows 10 start menu. As soon as you will open the start menu in Window 10, these tiles will be opened, giving the unclean and full look. These tiles cover a lot of area. Albeit you can resize the tiles easily, but even the small size adds to the clutter. But here is the good news: you can unpin all the tiles to make your Windows 10 start menu look exactly like Windows 7 start menu.
Unpin all Tiles from Windows 10 Start Menu and Make it Look like Windows 7 Start Menu
In order to unpin a tile from Windows 10 start menu, all you have to do is to just right click on the tile and click the “unpin” option. That’s it, Windows 10 Start menu will be detached from the tile.
You can do this to all the tiles and in the end, you will have a start menu with only the menu style, Windows 7-like start menu.
