    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?

    Windows 10 Start Menu all apps / tiles missing


    So I woke my computer up from sleep last night and this is what I was welcomed with:

    how to add an exe to the start menu as a tile. [​IMG]


    All of a sudden my start menu had no apps listed and no live tiles to speak of. So I did my googleing and I found this microsoft answer page: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...0-b988cd6da49a

    I tried every step in their. After all said and done, I got installed programs to show up, but the live tiles that usually show to the right did not come back. I was ok with that, thinking I would work on this today and find a solution to that problem.

    I just woke up the computer again from sleep and the start menu is blank AGAIN. Before this started happening last night, I have not installed any new software nor has windows ran any updates.

    I'm at a loss. I tried system recovery and to roll back to a few days prior, but I keep getting an error after recovery is attempted stating that windows recovery wasn't able to fully complete due to a certain file (i can retry recovery and post picture of error if needed).

    So any suggestions on whats my next step? I thought maybe I had a malware issue, but II have avast and malware antibytes installed and they showed no hits when the scans where run.

    Any suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated. Hope you all have a Great Turkey Day!

    PS, I have to work today from 4pm to 6am, so If I do not reply right away I apologize.

    Give Office 2016 Start Menu Tiles Colored Backgrounds


    After upgrading to Office 2016, I have noticed that the start menu tiles lost their colorful backgrounds and were reverted back to the accent color. Here is how to fix that so the tiles have colored backgrounds.

    This guide shows you go to go from this:
    Attachment 113103
    To this:
    Attachment 113105

    Step 1
    Navigate to your Start Menu folder
    Typically can be found at: "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs"

    Step 2
    Find the shortcut for one of the Office suite apps and rename it to anything you want.

    Step 3
    Reopen the Start Menu, the page will refresh and the tile will now be colored (assuming you have pinned it on the front page)

    Step 4 (Optional)
    Rename the shortcut back to its original name, the tile will still remain colored.

    Enjoy *Wink
