    Holographic entry in Start menu


    After updating to W10 1903, I noticed I have an entry for something called Holographic (below Xbox in picture). If I click the entry, nothing opens and a DistributedCom Error 10001 is logged in Events log. Searches for Holographic tell me this thing is related to Mixed reality.

    When I click to open Configuration in Settings for this app, this opens.

    I never used Mixed reality and I am not interested in using anything like it. After updating to 1903, with pleasure, I clicked to uninstall Mixed reality. So, perhaps this entry is a leftover after I uninstalled Mixed reality. Or, it was placed in my Start menu by the upgrade to 1903.

    No matter what, I like to get rid of it if possible, ....How can I get rid of it? Or, should I ignore it?

    Thanks

  2. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown Holographic entry in Start menu :(

    Double entries in start menu


    Hi, I can't definitely tell you why you have two identical shortcuts, but I can tell you you only get one folder level expressed in Win 10's start menu.

    Here's a suggestion for Avast: In your start menu folder do you have a shortcut at the top level as well as within a subfolder? That's what Avast normally creates. I deleted the first a long time back, and have only one visible.

    For example, I have a hierarchical start menu with category folders, subcategory folders and a folder for most programs- normal legacy start menu familiar from '98 to Win 7. It's fine if I use Classic Shell. But here's how you can see Win 10's start menu strips out the shortcuts and arranges them so helpfully in alphabetic order.

    All those help files are shortcuts in separate subfolders. I suppose the appropriate comment might be 'Help'!

    Given what you are seeing this suggests the shortcuts that appear identical perhaps aren't?

    Windows 10 Start menu is empty

    Hi. Steps 1 and 2 didn't do much but step 3 has restored what looks like the list of original Microsoft apps but no sign of any of the many apps I have installed. And there are no tiles in the start menu. Any suggestions please?
