Show files in Windows 10 Start Menu

We’ve been taking a look at the Start Menu in Windows 10 this week. Yesterday I showed you how to add or remove the All Apps feature from the Start Menu. Today we’ll look at how to add folders.

The default look for your Start Menu is to feature an icon for your profile, one for settings, and your power options.


But you can also add folders from your libraries. To access those options, type in Choose which folders appear in Start and click on the result.

Just tap any switch to move it to the On position and add that folder to Start.


Here, I’ve added Documents, Pictures, and Downloads to Start.


Here’s what they look like with the menu collapsed and All Apps visible. Just click on the icon to open the folder.


We’ll continue our look at customizing the Start Menu tomorrow.
