After the Windows 10 update, some of your default programs may have reverted back to the original Windows defaults. All my video files, for example, were set to play with the Windows 10 Movies & TV app instead of my preference, VLC.
By default, each section on the right side of your Start menu on Windows 10 has enough room for three app tiles (or one medium-sized one and one wide one). If you just can’t get enough of Windows 10’s live tile action you can expand it to four across per section.
To do this go to Start > Settings > Personalization > Start and turn on Show more tiles.
Dump the Windows 10 login background
Microsoft’s Windows 10 logo screen was nice to look at during the build-up to the operating system’s release. But I don’t need to look at it every day. The November update lets you change this by going to Start > Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen.
Next, scroll down a little bit and turn off the slider labeled “Show Windows background picture on the sign-in screen.” Once that’s done you’ll get a plain login screen with no background image instead of the Windows wallpaper image.
