This is the new way the Windows 10 Start menu can be customized with the Sun Valley version

One of the possibilities offered by Windows 10 is to customize the Start menu, a timeless classic of the Microsoft operating system. But although it has received several changes, something that until now we could not do is change it at will or not at least without affecting the other elements.

An improvement in addition to another novelty that they are already testing in the Canary version of Edge and which improves searches on Windows thanks to the integration with Edge since it allows browser data to be shared via search services in Windows 10,
