It's a well-known thing that Windows 10 has a consistency problem, and the OS actually comes with way too many different context menu designs right now. Though it's now available for few users, everyone can try using the new Start Menu by using ViveTool, which should set up manually.

But while there was a great deal of excitement about the cleaner, more refined look complete with translucent backgrounds, many Windows users were disappointed to find that the new Start menu was not available to everyone. Microsoft is conducting A/B testing, so only a subset of Insiders will see the redesigned Start menu. But, here's a way you can activate it.

Download the ViveTool here and extract it into a folder of your choice.

Now starts the command line as an administrator.

Now enter the path in which you unpacked the tool.

Upon doing so, now enter the following command: ViVeTool.exe addconfig 23615618 2 (mind the space between 8 and 2 at the end).

In case you don't think this is something that's as important as any other feature in Edge, you should have a look at the context menus available in Windows 10.
