Tutorial: Get back the Modern Start Screen in Technical Preview

| |
Microsoft has released the Technical Preview yesterday and there are alot of changes made in the new OS. One of those is removing the Modern Start Screen and replacing it with Start Menu. If like me, you installed the Technical Preview but you would like to get back the Modern Start Screen, here is a quick and easy way to make that happen.
The current preview is mostly geared towards IT professionals and those on a desktop PC.
Microsoft made it relatively easy to switch between the two and to set the default. Here is how.

  1. Go to Search.
  2. Type Navigation Properties.
  3. Go to tab 'Start Menu'.
  4. Toggle 'Use the Start Menu instead of the Start Screen'.

The system then tells you to log out and back in again to make the change. Note, however that as far as I know, you cannot have both the Start Menu and Start Screen working in tandem. In other words, when on the Desktop and using the Start key, it uses whichever is the default.
