In recent articles, I've explored the changes to the Start menu that were introduced in the windows 10 Anniversary Update and shown how you can use them to your advantage. In How to customize the Windows 10 Anniversary Update Start menu using the "Pare It Down" technique , I explained that because the All Apps list now appears on the left side of the Start menu by default, you can create a more efficient application launcher by removing all the tiles and resizing the menu. And in How to customize the Windows 10 Start menu with numbered shortcuts, I showed you how to improve the efficiency of the pared-down Start menu by numbering the shortcuts.

To build upon the work it did on the Start menu in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft is continuing to improve the Start menu. In build 14942, available on the Windows Insider Fast Track, Microsoft has introduced the ability to hide the app list on the Start menu.

In Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14942 for PC , Donna Sarkar, a software engineer in the Windows and Devices Group, introduced this new feature:

"We are releasing a new feature that enables you to collapse the app list in the Start menu. This has been a top feedback request from Windows Insiders."

So while many of us have been happily trudging along with the existing Start menu, exploring customization techniques, or turning to third-party solutions, the elite cadre of Windows Insiders has been pounding Microsoft with requests to improve the menu. And now this new Hide App List In Start Menu feature is making its appearance. There's no indication of when the feature will be available to the general public or whether there will be additional enhancements to the Start menu, so we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, let's take a closer look at the feature in Windows 10 build 14942.

The Hide App List In Start Menu feature

To begin, you can immediately see that the Start menu in build 14942 looks like the current version, as shown in Figure A . The All Apps list appears on the left and the tiles appear in two columns on the right.

When you then access the Start menu, you'll see that it now displays just the tiles, as shown in Figure D . In the upper left, you'll see two new buttons that allow you to switch between the Pinned Tiles view, which is the default, and the All Apps view.
