I always use the search feature to open my programs; but the reason I like the start menu to do it, is because I don't like my whole UI switching to the Start screen. Sometimes I like to multitask .

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

I also use stratus back and love it, I just find it more convenient hitting the start button and finding all the stuff right there and easy to navigate without changing the whole window, I like to multi task also.
