Re: because there was a better way.
That's just straight up wrong. Windows 10 still has the list of applications, grouped in folders if you like, that older Windows have. It's just the location of things in those lists that have changed. If you don't want to learn the new places (not new way, just new location) then you can search by name.
Windows 10 has been out long enough for you to have learned where stuff is. If you have to work on Windows you need to know this. If you don't need to know this, why are you moaning about it?
