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:

I agree with your opinion and upvote this.
some additions from my side
I feel there should be an option for customization as you suggested earlier because I feel that the windows community is the one that wants things to be customized according to the user and not the tech giants as seen in other OS apart from windows. secondly I would like that the resizing of the task bar should be brought back as it was something that helps us personalise the whole desktop as it was a very personal thing to do according to preference @Joerg_Baermann

Using Start11 does allow some customization that should be there by default, how hard can it be for Microsoft to have default options like that or better?
Heck, even Linux is way more flexible when it comes to GUI options.

Biggest drawback for me is that in Windows 11 you can't drag file over app icon on taskbar which bring that app window in front (if app was running).
It was one of my crucial tasbar functions for my workflow since windows 7 and now its gone which makes me frustrated each time I still try to do it.

@Joerg_Baermann I use windows for at least half the work day. The loss of the taskbar option to separate apps and have them labeled when open is terrible. I am losing time when working with several open files that use the same app wasting time hovering over the app icon waiting for them to pop up so I can select which one to click on.

Overall I like Windows11, except (and I'm nitpicking here) is the location of the start button on the taskbar. I'm so used to the start button being on the lower left-hand side of the screen and now its almost in the middle part of the taskbar.

You might want to check Settings - Personalization - Taksbar - Taksbar behaviors and set it to Left instead of Center then.
On big monitors I find it a lot better having it placed in center instead.

I think you can do that with an registry entry or WinAero
