Windows 10 is weird

Start Menu ToolbarWindows 10 has issues. Last weekend I got the blue screen of pending catastrophic doom, my computer shut down and rebooted with Windows updates and magically I had no start menu, no notifications, no real taskbar functionality and a lot of hidden things I have been having to rediscover in other ways. Good job I know my keyboard, am happy to right click or whatever to find out. Windows key X, Windows key E and Windows key R are my new BFFs.There is nothing I have not been able to do. I am even finding things that I would not be able to know on Windows if I just had access to the start menu. Change can bring insight. Probably my fault for blogging about the putrid start menu colours and the tacky Bing news. Microsoft has spoken. Love it or do without. The dysfunctional start menu was a problem for some with Windows 8 and #Windows10Fail on Twitter will give insight into the situation now. People are rolling back or just becoming a tad unsettled. Why not? Windows 10 was so cool when it came onto our computers so it is nice and frustrating to find out it has become so lumpy so soon…at all, in fact. I have had to go into the C drive to get programmes or run them from Windows R if it can find them. Often not. It’s amazing what Windows 10 now can’t find that I can. I have to use the image preview to access my paint programme which I love and suits me. That is just plain weird.There are lots of things I like about Windows 10 and ,discovering so much because the start menu is crippled, is the up side of such a ridiculous occurrence. This afternoon my computer gave me another sudden blue screen of pending catastrophic doom and Windows put through some more updates. I thought it was bringing my start menu back. No. No, it wasn’t. So with a bit of help from the aptly named site Computer Hope I made myself a start menu toolbar which suits me very well, thank you. Now I don’t have to keep running the .exe file to get the snipping tool. Half way down the page I have linked on Computer Hope are instructions to Create a Windows Start Menu Toolbar. Worked like a charm and has lightened my load.
