Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 Redstone 2 build to keep you busy this weekend. Unlike the previous Redstone 2 build versions, build 14942 brings 9 new features such as new viewing options for the Photos App, adjustments to gesture and click detection on precision touchpads, and more.

One of the most popular new features among Insiders is the possibility to hide the app list in the Start Menu. Following users requests, Windows 10 now allows you to collapse the app list in the Start menu. If you want to enable this feature, go to Settings > Personalization > Start and turn on the option “Hide app list in Start menu”.

Hide app list on Start: We are releasing a new feature that enables you to collapse the app list in the Start menu. This has been a top feedback request from Windows Insiders. You can try it out by going to Settings > Personalization > Start and turning on “Hide app list in Start menu”.

However, this feature doesn’t work as intended for all users. Hardly released, the “Hide app list” option causes issues of its own. According to recent Insider reports, this feature has no effect if the Use Start full screen setting is turned on. Users also report that the Start button doesn’t work for two minutes after reboot.

We still don’t know if the Start button’s unresponsiveness is caused by the newly added “Hide app list” option. Nevertheless, it’s intriguing that this bug appeared exactly when Microsoft added this feature. For some users, the Start Menu remains completely unresponsive despite multiple reboots.

Have you already downloaded Windows 10 build 14942? Is the “Hide app list” option working properly for you?
