That is what the icon is for. to bring up the start menu, so no surprise that is what happens when you press it...….

However you can change the way this behaves, if you go to settings and personalisation, then choose start, you can choose if the list of apps shows to the left of the start menu.

If you do not want to see the start menu at all and just the list of apps, I do believe you can achieve this by unpinning all of the apps from the start menu.

Hope that helps.

If you mean the actual physical location of the start menu button, then the only thing you can do is move the entire taskbar. So for example, if you move the taskbar to the top of the screen then the start menu will appear in the upper left. Or if you move the taskbar to the left side of the screen then the start menu will also appear in the upper left.

Yes it is absolute possible but you had need a software "KMSAuto" . Download first off your antivirus and setup. Thank you
