64-bit Windows 10 Pro is testing a new drop down menu

Microsoft has started to test an update for its many web properties that changes the header bar. The update improves the drop down experience from a large black bar to a cleaner white box that lays on top of the existing content.

I hope it will be customizable as I don't use but 2 out of 8 of the 'tiles'. Nice to have the Calendar showing today's weather and on tomorrow's date clicking the small icon shows 4 days of forecasts. But they did screw it up by not putting on the DST change for Nov. 2, had to do it myself.

Looks to me like that header/drop down is using the tiles seen in Win8/8.1.

Explorer Drop Down Menu
Win 7 doesn't seem to have an "Open With" option on the right click or shift right click menu for executables. What I frequently want to do is examine an executable with, for example, WinHex. I'm sure there is a simple registry fix but I can't find it. Help! Thanks
