Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing that we need to do is access the start menu by clicking on the lower-left corner of the screen.
    Once in the start menu, you will notice that you have a lot of apps pinned here. In this case, we don't have really a lot, but you might. If you don't want to scroll to the left or to the right to see all the apps, you can simply zoom out.

    To zoom out, you need to move the mouse cursor to the lower-right corner of the screen.
    There is a minus sign. It's pretty subtle, but it is still visible.

    To zoom back in, you need to simply press the mouse button on the empty space.
    If you want to focus on a specific group, you need to simply click the group. For example, we need to focus on the games group here. Press it, and we're focused on the games group. So if you have a lot of apps in the clicked area, you will focus on the area.
