    Broken Start Menu since October update, any help is appreciated.


    Hi guys,

    So ever since the (infamous) October update, my start menu has been messed up. I configure my start menu to have no tiles at all, but after turning my computer off, waiting a little while and turning it back on, the start menu *always* resets to default. I've tried a number of fixes that seemed to work, but when I boot up my PC again the next day, all the pinned apps magically reappear (much to my chagrin).


    I've tried all of the following powershell commands with no success:

    sfc /scannow


    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    I really don't want to have to reinstall my OS for such a ridiculous issue, all I want is a blank start menu. If anyone knows how to fix this I would be indebted to you =)

    :)

    Broken/Duplicate Item in Start Menu

    Okay, I ran both commands, and the broken Netflix start menu item was still there, so I restarted my computer and it was still there. I made sure the spacing was right and they seemed to have run properly, I just forgot to take a screenshot as proof before
    I closed the Command Prompt.

    Broken/Duplicate Item in Start Menu

    Hi,

    The duplicate icon that's appearing in the Start Menu may be due to broken system components or file corruptions. Let's try resolving this concern by running the
    System File Checker tool. This will scan and restore any corrupted system files. To do this, here are the steps:

    • Type Command Prompt in the Search box from the taskbar.
    • Right-click on it, then select Run as administrator.
    • Enter DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (note the spaces before each "/").
    • Enter sfc /scannow (note the space between "sfc" and "/").

    We’ll wait for your update after trying the steps provided.
