    Lost start menu windows 10


    After trying all suggested fixes, I finally was forced to use Windows Recovery under Settings to reload the full system. I lost all non-Microsoft applications but recovered the start menu. Though this was a painful, no other suggestions worked.

    Windows created an HTML file listing all programs that was deleted and that was very helpful for reinstalling mt lost programs.

    Thanks to everyone for their effort, perhaps Microsoft will discover the root cause of so many who are losing the Start menu and can prevent it in the future.
