e.g. change in speed (acceleration)>Which is the "Start Screen", about which the thread is.
the "All Programs" menu is a secondary component, the primary component are the pinned tiles. if you're primarily using All Programs, you completely missed the point of the start screen and used it like a worse start menu>If you are using pre-set apps, you may just put them in desktop. This will either save you a click or be exactly the same
the start screen is an improved concept of desktop items - you can bring up an organized set of programs at any time, without having to minimize everything to go back to the desktop. while not cluttering your desktop with program icons that you don't need to see most of the time>1. It doesn't require any visual searching,
that's why you put and group your tiles in a way that you will remember where everything is and quickly identify the correct tile. with a menu/list, you have to spend more time reading words, which is much slower than identifying something by an icon at its expected location>precise cursor positioning and arm movement.>2. You have 10 fingers at your disposal, which is faster
mice are more than sufficiently precise, tiles are big and easy to hit. if you have the correct mouse sensitivity, you only need to flick your wrist, not move your whole arm
if you had your hand on the mouse already then you have only 5 fingers available until you waste a second to move your other hand to the keyboard>In the latter case you need at most 3 letters (which is instant even with terrible typing speed) and enter.
