Once you have unpinned all the existing tiles from the Start Menu, the tile area will collapse down and the Start menu is then just a single column of folders, shortcuts, etc.
Correct. Easy peasy.
And when you then pin your favourite programms to the taskbar, so that you simply open it with [Ctrl]+1, 2, 3... according to the order in which you put them there (and you can change that anytime you want with drag & drop) you only need the start button to switch off your computer (which is funny, when I think of it).
Now if I could completely and permanently disable Cortana and improve the search on my computer, everything would be perfect.

Here ya go: How to Disable Cortana in Windows 10

It's a one-line regedit, and there's a one-click downloadable at that link. I've been living happily without Cortana since the 8.1 days.
