I first moved from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I really found how much I missed the Start menu, It is a fantastic feeling to have it back on the OS (operating system), and I personally like the live tiles addition, But the window 10 start menu comes with load of default additions, that you probably dont want, Today I will show you how you can customize the start menu in Windows 10 OS.
Dump Recently added and Most used
Let us start the process by clicking the Start and opening the Setting
app, Now go to “Setting > Personalization > Start“. Now select
and “turn off” the options for Show recently added apps and Show most used apps.
Fill the Gap in Start menu
Now that you have done, there as a bi gap on the left side of the Start menu that need to be filled, We can’t fill it up with just whatever we want, but we do have a few options to choose.
Inside the Settings app, go to “Personalization > Start > Choose” which folders appear on Start, A screen with a set of sliders to make specific folders appears in Start. It is similar to what you would have see in the Windows 7 Start menu such
as the pictures, documents, and music folders, But only this time
the folders show up on the left side instead of the right.

Again there are some system settings you can add in this list that are not folders, Some of them are quick access to Home group and network settings.
Change the Menu as Shape and Size
Windows by default adjusts the Start menu size based on your screen resolution. For example, on my monitor resolution is 1900×1200, i don’t want Start menu to take up all
that space, so I resized it to be a bit more compact and very good
Resizing the start menu is so easy that you actually don’t need to read anything about it, All you have to do is just hover your mouse cursor in the corners of start menu and you can resize it to your desired resolution.
One of the biggest difference between the Windows 10 and Windows 7 is the Start menus and the live tiles in it, The tiles which Microsoft includes by default are not necessarily for a lot of people that use, so you all definitely want to resize and rearrange tiles based on what you actually need.
Example, I don’t need anything in the “Play and Explore” section, so I removed it entirely. Meanwhile, the Weather tile is pretty handy, but it is much too small to show all the useful information it has ,so I made it bigger at the expense of other ,lesser-used tiles
