Another option is to switch between the traditional start screen and a full screen start similar to Windows 8.1. Microsoft has included this option in settings. Navigate to Settings-> Personalization and select Start.
Here you will see the option to use full screen start when in the desktop. Just turn this on and you can see the start screen in full screen mode. You can also hit the top left corner to get more apps and features and also access other menus. You can also switch back to the old start menu by turning off this option.
So if you are familiar with the full screen start menu, you now have the option to enable it.
