Earlier this week, we reported that Microsoft is working on a new redesigned Start Menu for Windows 10 and has already started rolling out the changes for the Dev channel within the Insider Program. The new Start Menu is available for users running Windows 10 build 20161 which is available in the Dev channel. But, sadly, not every user with build 20161 is able to see the new Start Menu and that is because Microsoft is using A/B testing method with it.
However, if you are already enrolled on Insider Preview and already running the right build, here’s how you can enable the new Start Menu in Windows 10.
Before proceeding with the steps make sure that you are enrolled into Windows Insider Program and have selected the Dev channel. Also, head to Windows Properties and check whether you are running the build 20161. If now, head to Windows Update and install the right build.
Now, follow these steps to enable new Start Menu
1. Download ViveTool and extract it on desktop with folder name ViveTool
2. Head to cmd and run it as administrator
3.Now, head to c:\Users\Mark\Desktop\ViveTool using cmd
4.Then enter VivoTook.exe addconfig 23615618 2 and press Enter
5. Restart your computer
Do note that this is a workaround. ViveTool is a third-party app and might harm your computer, so download at your own risk.
