Setting up and customizing the Windows 10 Start screen

I think that the “Start Screen” displayed on the left side of the Windows 10 Start Menu is something you don’t need by default.
You can customize the environment to make it easy to use, such as displaying the icons of frequently used apps and folders on the start screen, deleting unnecessary items to make it simpler, and changing the size of “tiles”. Here, we will introduce how to customize the “Start screen” in the start menu.
