I go to Start button, I see icons only. I can't tell what the programs are, there's no text. What's going on? How can I find a program? I mean, I'd expect to see my programs in alpha order but I just see icons. TIA...

Thanks. Just installed it, OpenShellSetup_4_4_131.exe. There are various options, don't know which to choose. What would you use?

Classic
Classic with two columns
Windows 7 style

Or something else?

I set it at Classic with two columns, had to choose something. I could live with that. Click Programs and I see my programs or their folders.

Lots going on in there... Thanks!

My simplest choice. All default.

There are lots of tweaking options in that program.

Thanks. I'm going to change mine to Windows 7. I have used that alot. In fact, I plan to return to Windows 7 on this machine. The trackpad behavior is intolerable in Windows 10 on this Lenovo T61. I just haven't gotten around to making the change.
