  1. BitLocker Missing from Control Panel in New Win 10 Build


    Hi there noticed that BitLocker is missing from my new Win 10 Build with all latest Cumulative Win 10 Updates for 64-based system installed

    Computer search ( Msconfig ) shows that both: BitLocker Drive Encryption as well as Encrypting File System [EFS] are not 'disabled' BUT 'Stopped' and there is NO option there to 'un-stopped' the options and allow BitLocker to appear in the Control Panel after re-start?


    Any help here would be appreciated indeed as have been using BitLocker for a long time


    Cheers

    George

  2. Bitlocker menu in Control Panel is gone!!!!!

    Hi,

    From the above screenshot I see that you are not able to access or see the Bitlocker Drive Encryption in Control Panel, i suggest you to change the view of the Control panel and then check if you are able to access or view it.

    Follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Type Control Panel in the Search bar and then Enter.
    • Select the View by options in the upper right pane.
    • In Category select the small icons and then check if you can view the Bitlocker Drive Encryption option.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
