Got nothing against that the start menu is simplified, but I still dislike to be forced scrolling trough app pages like on an iPad/Chromebook.

On Windows 10 all pins could be displayed on a glance and sorted into groups, now the same amount of apps take 3 pages, not very desktop friendly.

Big tiles like on the Windows 10 start menu also work better for people who are visually and fine-motor control challenged.
Small stuff is hard to select with a Tobii and hands that are very hard to control.
Does Microsoft even know that Windows is used on communication devices for people with disabilities?


Making the taskbar unmovable is another minus.
We got an 85" CTOUCH display where it the taskbar is moved to the top of the screen, that to prevent  that certain kids (with disabilities) can mess around with it.
Not quite sure why Microsoft felt the need to dictate where the taskbar should be either.

I would like to see that such features are optional, at least to meet accessibility.

Here are some suggestions in the Feedback Hub for people for people who prefer the Windows 10 start menu to upvote:

Hello
I think that Microsoft will listen to these suggestions and allow you to customize the Taskbar as in Windows10.
Indeed, this needs to be improved for users - using accessibility, Each such post helps in improving Windows !
