If we look around, we will find that Windows 10 is now the most popular desktop operating system. The operating system is powering more than 60% of desktop computers and laptops right now. If you have ever used Windows 10, you might be well aware of the Start Button.

Some users use the Start button to access the start menu. Similarly, some users use keyboard shortcuts to open the Start Menu.
