on windows 10, how do I get the old 8.1 desktop tile back?

Windows 10

Asked by: AlH.

Note I'm not referring to anything ON the desktop, but the start menu TILE that we had in 8.1.  It basically showed us the desktop wallpaper, and we could click on it to go there.

(Yes, I know we have other options: click the start button for one.  But I liked seeing my wallpaper in the start menu as a large tile before upgrading.)

If anyone has figured this out (and I've looked elsewhere already), I'd appreciate it!

And, if any MS staff sees this and knows if cannot be done, maybe putting it on the "wish list" would be appropriate :).
