    Recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on my laptop. My setup on Windows 8.1 was like this:
    • Disk indexing disabled
    • Use the start screen
    • Default to "all apps" view on the start screen
    • To start an app, I would just hit the Windows key, start typing the name, and then hit enter
    Now, on Windows 10, "search" doesn't return any result at all if you disable disk indexing (which is a hog of a system process if ever I've seen one). The start screen can be enabled, but the "all apps" view is completely gone - so even if you enable the start screen, if you want to see all the installed apps, you can only do so in a tiny sliver of screen on the left of your display.

    Am I doing something wrong here? This just seems fucking ridiculous to me. They did so many things right with 8 and 8.1 and now they're just backtracking all over it and completely fucking usability. Don't get me started on how you can only access some of the desktop settings in the metro settings app now...
