Windows 10 opening in Start Screen

My windows 10 opens in the Start Menu but I want it to open in the Start Screen. The Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window does not have a tab for the Start Menu - only Taskbar, Navigation, and Toolbars. Do I have an alternative to making the Start Screen the default?

In settings/personalization, you can set the Start menu to use "full screen Start"
