The Export-StartLayout cmdlet exports the layout of the Start screen of the current user. You can export layout as an .xml file to verify the layout, or you can export
layout as a .bin file to modify the layout of an existing Windows image. Specify the appropriate file name extension, .bin or .xml, in the name of the file. To modify the
layout of a Windows image, export the layout as a .bin file, and then import it into a Windows image by using the Import-StartLayout cmdlet.

Example 1: Export the layout as a .bin file

PS C:\> Export-StartLayout -Path "C:\Layouts\Marketing.bin" -As BIN

This command exports the layout of the Start screen to a file named Marketing.bin in the C:\Layouts folder. The command specifies a value of BIN for the As parameter, so the
cmdlet creates a .bin file.
