    @KrakowKaz: Sorry, I am not familiar with that software.

    Stardock has Start10 in beta for 9926, however I haven't tried it. I'll wait until Windows 10 is a released product and StartIsBack has an update for it.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    A wise decision.

    Agreed. Microsoft has warned that making registry changes to the Preview can have unintended effects especially as new builds are released. Best leave it as is. I haven't been in love with the current Start Menu either but it is usable and I will hold off installing a replacement until the final release. The Start Menu seems to change with every new build. Maybe they'll get it right by final release......

    I don't see much of a point in "beta testing" if one is not testing the beta. I'm just plinkin' and plunkin' (realizing that not everything is going to be functional) and giving feedback to MS.

    Fiddling around with a start menu that I don't really care for gives me more information to feed back to MS along the lines of what I would prefer to see vs what's available at the moment in this build.
