  1. I've noticed some programs disappear after having just used them


    I've noticed some programs work fine, then after I use them and close them, their icons turn to a blank shortcut and the programs require re-installing to work again.

    Is this one of the features from one of the many forced auto updates I can't opt out of?

  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.

    Internet Explorer 11 Programs Tab Disappears When Clicked

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.


    • What exactly do you mean by program tab disappears after you click it?

    • Do you face this issue specific with program tab or all the tab?
    I suggest you to open Internet Option from Command prompt and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps to open Internet Options.

    1. Press windows + R and type
    inetcpl.cpl.

    2. After opening the Internet options check if the issue still persist.




    Keep us posted on this issue so that we can assist you better.
