    Long wait for adds or changes to show up in start menu Apps List


    When I add or change folders, shortcuts to the start menu Apps List everything goes well
    except that it takes hours for the changes or additions to show up. Restarting the computer
    does not help. Sometimes they show up the next day. Working with this path:
    C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Any ideas as why the long wait?

    :)

  2. How can I add programs to the All Apps start menu list?


    Please elaborate on I was unable to get it to recognize a new folder

    Do you mean
    the folder did not appear in the Start list
    - or -
    you could not create the folder

    I add folders and shortcuts to the Start menu regularly. Once I figured out the time stamp thing (a new object shows up, a copied object might show up).

    Please follow these steps exactly and post any problems you run into when they happen.

    1. Open Control Panel (View by: Small icons)

    2. Right click Indexing Options in Control Panel
      Select Create shortcut
      answer Yes when the dialog window tells you that the shortcut cannot be created here ....
      There should now be an Indexing Options shortcut on your Desktop

    3. Launch File Explorer
      Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
      Create a new folder named 10test
      Open the new 10test folder in File Explorer
      Drag the Indexing Options shortcut on your Desktop to the new 10test folder

    4. Open Start - the 10test folder should be at the top of the list and the Indexing Options shortcut is inside that folder.

    That is the process I use.

    There were issues with Start in some of the earlier Preview builds, but I haven't seen those in the Retail release.

    If I recall, pinning something from the list to Start seemed to wake up the process. Try that if you don't see the 10test folder in the menu list.

    That's about all I can think of.

    Post Anniversary Update: Long App List in Start Menu


    Before the update, there was "all programs" which would hide all the apps but now they're all exposed as soon as you click the start button. How to remove this long ugly list?

    can not hide app list in start menu


    One possibility is that you're using Start in full screen mode.

    There is registry setting, but is in binary mode and is used for other settings too…
