The Windows 10 Start menu is a table of contents to all the apps (programs), folders and contacts you use often. In Desktop mode, all the app icons appear in an alphabetical list on the left side of the screen, and they can be made to appear on the right side as tiles. If the tiles are "live," they can display changing information from the application in real time such as stock quotes or the weather. Sometimes they just cycle through images for entertainment.
