How to revert to previous style Start Centre

I just tried 4.4.2 but have reverted to because I am more comfortable with that Start Centre.
Is there a way I can use the “classic” Start Centre with 4.4.2?

My discomfort with the 4.4.2 Start Centre is that IMHO it is designed for a touch screen.
The 4.1.6 Start Centre was, IMHO, a simpler and easier design for this Mac desktop user. But that’s just 77 year old me :-}


Question edited to be clearer that the topic is the Start Centre (displaying recently used documents) rather than the splash dialog (which is only displayed temporarily on startup).

Refer this question.
