There are two known Start menus in Windows 10. They are the desktop mode and tablet mode. Depending on the device you are using and preference, you can set one as your default. Having said that, there is also a third start menu, which is text-based (i.e., no icons). It will load quickly and provide instant access to most of your common Start menu selections.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
Right-click the Windows logo on your Start menu which will launch the text-only version.
Because it has no graphics and animations, it will function quickly and provide access to many of your regular Start menu’s options without the resource and performance drag and without cluttering up your desktop.
Pretty cool huh?
