Windows 11 Start Menu Layout Group Policy


Windows 11 has launched today and it wasn’t long before I spotted some request for rearranging the start menu from the new centre layout to the traditional start menu on the left which can be pushed through a group policy or similar.

Procmon to the rescue which found the following Reg location that handles this, so you can create a group policy preference etc configure you preference for new or traditional start button layout.


Setting this dword code to “1” applies puts the start layout to the centre while applying “0” to this value moves the start menu back to the left hand side.
