How to Open Windows 10 Start in the Full-screen Mode

Microsoft listened to what Windows users were asking for and finally they have brought back the Start Menu in the new Windows 10. But this Start Menu is now being called just the Start, perhaps because this is much more than a menu. When you click on the small Start icon in the taskbar or press the Windows logo key, this Start is displayed in a not very different way than it was shown in the previous versions of Windows. What Windows 10 does differently is that it allows you to use Start in the full screen mode. If you have a touchscreen enabled PC, then you might want to use the Start in full-screen mode for easily going through all the shortcuts and apps.

Now you can try pressing the Windows logo key and you would be able to access Start in the full screen mode. Although you can use the Start on any PC, it obviously works better if you have a touchscreen enabled notebook or a tablet computer.
