Windows 10 is a new operating system and people still have not logged in sufficient time to get to know the operating system inside out.

You can choose whatever options you want to. If you want to change the size of the tile, go to Resize and select any of the options given: Small, Medium, Wide, Large. You can also choose to Unpin certain apps from the Start Menu or replace them with other apps by just “drag and drop.”

Start Windows 10 faster than before

As you start your Windows 10, many apps start working in the background which you do not use. These apps slow down your system. To avoid this, look for Task Manager on Cortana. As you open the desktop app, you will see a list of apps along with their “Status.” You can choose which apps you want to start along with your boot up and which you do not want to launch as you start your laptop/desktop. To enable or disable these apps, right click on “enable/disable” options, and select option according to your choice.
