Benefits and problems solved with Start Screen & Taskbar Manager

The start menu on Windows has evolved with each iteration. With Windows 10 Cortana is becoming more and more a part of the experience and tiles can now be replaced with program lists or other configuration options. The taskbar has also evolved. Not only can you move it, or show/hide the taskbar like before, but with just a right click, users can access windows power shell, computer management, device manager and more – things you might want to turn off based on your user base. Here is a list of videos that show some (but not all) of the power of PolicyPak’s Start Screen & Task Manager.
