Windows 10 May 2020 Update gets new Start Menu, but there’s a catch


The new Start Menu redesign, which was originally supposed to arrive with Windows 10 21H1 update in the spring of 2021, is now available in May 2020 Update (version 2004), but it’s hidden and it needs to be enabled by tweaking Windows Registry.

Windows 10 Start Menu redesign offers a more streamlined design by applying “a uniform, partially transparent background to the tiles”. With Windows 10 KB4568831 optional update, Microsoft has ported back the new Start Menu to Windows 10 version 2004.

The feature is apparently hidden and you would need to modify Windows Registry to apply the design changes.

How to enable new Start Menu in Windows 10 May 2020 Update

  1. Open Notepad.
  2. Paste the following content in Notepad
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


  3. Save the Notepad file as 20H2.reg
  4. Run the 20H2.reg and apply the registry changes.
  5. Restart your system.

After the system reboot, you should now have the new Start menu. In addition, you’ll also gain access to Windows 10’s new Alt-Tab experience that includes tabs from Microsoft Edge To confirm, open Windows Search and look for Alt-tab settings. In Alt-tab settings, you’ll see a new option to configure Microsoft Edge tabs.
