    Duplicate Start Menu Files Displaying


    Hello,

    I have a MySql installation on a Windows 10 64-bit machine. I am seeing duplicate files displayed in the Start Menu. Is there anyway to clean this up? There is only one physical file location that I can see.

  2. Duplicate Program Shortcuts...

    Open File Explorer and go to Windows - Start menu - Programs folder. Delete the duplicate shortcuts from there.

    Need to reset what "Display Settings" does when I plug in a second monitor

    In that case, try changing the Multiple displays option to Duplicate displays. Right-click on desktop then select display settings. Click advanced display settings and select the main monitor. On the drop down menu of "Multiple displays", select Duplicate
    displays then click apply.

    Get back to us if you need further assistance.

    Duplicate Start Menu Files Displaying

    I think you might be seeing one of my 'favourite' Windows bugs - and why I use Classic Shell start menu (free) not Win 10's. However you refer to having only one folder.... so I'm not quite sure. Anyway:

    I'm going to guess you have an inherited quite deeply nested hierarchical start menu (lots of folders).

    After about 3 deep, Win 10's start menu discards the folders and lists the content (shortcuts) in order. Thus you might get

    Help
    Help
    Help
    Help
    ......

    - each relating to a separate program.

    I think MS's thinking is this:
    If you clean install Win 10 and use the start menu, it works.

    If you upgrade with a complex start menu, deeply nested, you're sunk 'cos they haven't allowed for that.

    (Initially the number of items allowed in the Start Menu was so low some found items missing when upgrading... that might tell you something).

    Use Classic Shell- it just works.

    It's easy- just download it (free) - easy to find. Lots of configurable options, drag 'n drop - you can still use Win10's menu with a hot key, and launch apps from CS. Search is configurable (unlike Win 10's).

    You are always free to search the tutorial section.
