Ever since Windows 10, which was released in July 2015, many users noticed that the Start Menu would pop up when they opened the Windows Start Screen. You may not know that the reason is that the Start Menu app is linked to the same code that can also run on Windows 8.1.

- With a fresh new visual flaw, the Windows 11 system problems story continues.
- When you click the Start button this time, something unexpected occurs.
- Instead of the updated version, the Start menu from Windows 10 appears.
- People are losing faith in the forthcoming OS because of issues like these.
Remember how we stated that certain Insiders, especially those who test on the Dev channel, were on the verge of entering the Windows 11 abyss?
We suggested so because Microsoft indicated that the preview releases available via the above-mentioned channel will grow more unstable and problematic.
However, it appears that not only these users are experiencing strange behavior, as the upcoming OS begins to play some surprising tricks.
Windows 11 with a Start menu similar to Windows 10?
Yes, you read it right; there’s no smoke and mirrors here; it’s simply another Windows 11 system flaw.
Something like this occurs just when you think things couldn’t be much weirder with an already odd operating system.
We can picture the delight on some people’s faces, given that some disliked the new Start menu and wished for a means to return to the old one.
But, regardless of how much humor or nostalgia this scenario elicited, we’re still dealing with a virus that must be completely eradicated. After all, this is no longer Kansas (Windows 10)!
So, let’s have a look at what this is all about. This problem has recently emerged on a number of forums and social media sites where Windows Insiders discuss their discoveries with the rest of the community.
As you can see in the video above, clicking the Start menu button on this Windows 11 preview release actually brings up the old version of the menu, the one from the OS before to this one.
Don’t you believe it brings back some memories from previous operating systems if we think about it?
For example, in Windows 8 and later, the Aero theme superseded the Windows Classic theme, which was only kept around to preserve compatibility with applications that had not been upgraded to utilize the newer title bar systems.
However, something like this should not be occurring this late in the testing process. The majority of folks claim it’s because it’s still Windows 10 with some new tattoos.
The originality of Windows 11 has been severely questioned.
Even the most ardent Windows 11 fans are discouraged by this new system issue, since it demonstrates that the new OS is essentially the same as the previous one, although with extra make-up.
Even if that is the case, Microsoft could have done a better job of keeping this to themselves and bolstering community trust rather than destroying it with such inexcusable errors.
The fact that the old Start Menu is still in the source demonstrates just how unmanageable and bloated Windows has gotten underneath the new-ish skin.
I had a similar experience with the old File Explorer suddenly appearing; evidently, the new explorer is also only a wrapper over the old code that may be deactivated in some way.
I’m hoping that someone will come up with a script or registry entry to permanently restore this functionality.
Yes, people wanted to be able to modify and reverse such components in Windows 11, but not in this way.
And be assured that even if Microsoft fixes all of these issues before the October 5th launch, users will still be able to restore important portions of the OS to their original Windows 10 appearance.
Such options are still available today, in the shape of software like StartisBack (the current Beta version) and Stardock’s Start 11.
The key point here is that Microsoft committed too many minor errors, which resulted in a snowball effect that harmed the company’s image and trustworthiness in the long term.
These problems will be humiliating for Microsoft if Windows 11 is distributed to the broader public and consumers upgrade. Microsoft’s reputation will be damaged once again, further eroding public confidence.
But, as we all know, you have to lay in your bed the way you made it, so Redmond authorities will have to find a way to redeem themselves after the dust has settled.
Until then, we’ll continue to test the future operating system and keep an eye out for circumstances that are comparable or worse.
Hopefully, all will work out in the end, and Windows 11 will be a nice, engaging experience, despite all of the drama and errors that have been made.
Keep in mind that we offer a variety of useful articles that may come in handy when you’re in a jam. And while we’re on the subject of the Start menu, this one might come in handy.

Windows 10 is a great operating system, but there is one thing I really dislike about it. Every time I go to open the Start menu, I have to click on the “X” icon that appears at the top right corner of the menu to close it. That action is required because Windows 10 replaced the Start menu with the new “Start screen”.. Read more about windows 11 release date and let us know what you think.
