So, just like many of us got a free upgrade to Windows 11, I too got to try my hands on the very new Windows 11.
The look and feel of Windows 11 is completely fresh when compared to the previous windows.
There were a few changes too, for the previous Windows users such as Windows 10, Windows 7, etc.
One of the basic differences is the location of the START BUTTON which is given at the center in the new WINDOWS 11. But not all of us are comfortable with that.
Some of us may want to keep the START BUTTON on the left only.
So, let us try to learn the way to put it on the left again as per our requirement.
In this article, we’ll learn to change the position of the START BUTTON to the left.
WHY DO WE NEED THE START BUTTON IN WINDOWS 11 ON THE LEFT?
This is purely the requirement of the individual but it is important.
We make use of the START BUTTON so frequently that we might find it difficult or time taking if the position is not comfortable for us.
One more reason can be that when our WINDOWS BUTTON or START BUTTON is on the left, it is very easy to reach it by simply putting the mouse on the bottom left but it takes a bit of time to position the mouse pointer on the center.
Some people might like to see the Start button on the left instead of the center.
