    you can't delete the mail app.

    what you did was unpin it from the start screen. find it in the app list and pin it again.

    How do I get rid of apps, like xbox live games?

    And you can't just unpin it from the Start screen and ignore the Games Hub? No one's forcing you to play games on your phone. You can't remove the built-in apps on the other platforms either.

    Can't unpin app from Start

    That's strange. If it's a shortcut to a normal program, it should have context menu entries such as "Uninstall" and "Open File Location".
    I believe that I'm onto something, but I'll verify it before suggesting it to .

    Some other forum posters and I also have this problem. Pinning and unpinning does nothing until a reboot or restarting the explorer.exe process.

    I have this same problem, which I discovered when "pin to start" didn't seem to work. But I don't have it on another computer running Windows 10 that I had updated from the Technical Preview. Anyone know why pin to start needs a reboot to show results?

    Restarting explorer.exe is a quick fix that's meant to be temporary. The problem just disappeared for me and now everything works fine. Sorry I can't tell you what fixed it, I didn't do anything :/

    Can't unpin app from Start

    Hey, so i got the same problem i was pinning a .exe file to start but it did not work, just a gray little box but what is much more annoying is that i cant unpin it again, it dosent do anything at all and it stays there even after restart of system and explorer.exe. Do anyone have an idea to fixing this glitch? Please comment and sorry for misspells english isn't my native language.

    I had/have the same issue, are you running Kaspersky? There is an issue with Kaspersky, that breaks the start menu, there are aware, but not sure how long until a fix will be out.

    You'll also notice that while KIS is starting pinning/unpinning works correctly and then as soon as app finishes starting (after around 1 minute) then the issue appears
    This is a PITA but restarting Explorer process is fine for now I guess

    Got some Windows 10 patches installed today and now pin and unpin seems to work OK.

    It's been suggested elsewhere that KB308142 (SR1) fixes this. I got this on 6/8 but in my case it hasn't fixed the issue.
    Does anyone know if there is fix/KB that refers to this issue?

    I had the updates installed yesterday and the start menu now works as it should, will keep on eye on it for a few days to ensure it doesn't break again.
