This is the start when "Use Start full scren" is on. The Pinned tiles are the default. How can I display the All apps list real fast without using a mouse?

This is the desired view, best opened instantly using some fancy hidden key-shortcut. enter image description here

Press tab (if you have a tile already selected on the right, press it twice), then press down arrow twice, followed by enter or Spacebar.

Alternatively, even quicker, start typing the first letters of the program you want to launch.

And don't forget, you can pin programs from the all apps to your startmenu, which creates tiles. You can drag several tiles ontop of eachother to create a group (like a folder) so you can basically create a folder for all your apps.

That being said, there is no real instant jump into that specific view using any secret hotkey, so if you don't want this and want an even quicker way, consider disabling the Full Screen Start menu, and after pressing start, drag the startmenu edges to the top and the right to make it as big as possible.

  • Cool, I haven't realised that you can drag the edges to enlarge it. – Qwerty May 29 '17 at 10:04
  • @Qwerty Yeah. Does this resolve your issue? If so, please mark this answer as answered, so others know you no longer need any help. – LPChip May 29 '17 at 12:40
  • No, it doesn't actually. I have updated the question to better express what is desired. – Qwerty May 30 '17 at 11:02
  • So, my solution does work, the first part. Its just not an instant thing which unfortunately is not possible unless you go for an alternate startmenu, such as Classic Shell. – LPChip May 30 '17 at 12:32
