    Missing Start Menu icons.


    A lot of my Start Menu icons have recently disappeared. Both tiles and "All Apps" entries. The missing items range from games to Windows features. For example "Windows Accessories" only has three items listed and "Windows Administrative Tools" is missing altogether.

    The only thing I've done recently, which might have caused this is running CCleaner.

    I tried "chkdsk c: /f /r", "SFC /ScanNow", "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup", and "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth", and "Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}", but none of that worked. Is there something else I can try?

    (I suspect that I might be misusing the term "icon," because the alternate method at the site where I found that PowerShell command starts, "1. Hold-and-press or right click the missing icon....")

    :)

    Windows 10 start menu missing icon

    I followed all your troubleshooting steps and the icons are still missing. All of the missing icons in the start menu are all windows store apps. If you have any further suggestions on what to try, please let me know. Thanks.

    Start Menu icons are missing

    Hi Janes,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience caused and we will try our best to resolve the issue.

    To assist you better, please provide few details.


    • Which all Icons are missing on the Start menu?

    • Are you able to find the Icons, when you click on
      All apps
      in the start menu?

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to search for the Icons in the search bar, if the icon appears in the search list then
    right click on the icon and select Pin to Start and check if the icons appears in the start menu.

    If the issue persists, Perform System File Checker (sfc) scan and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    To perform SFC Scan, refer to the below link:

    Note: Steps mentioned for Windows 8/8.1, will work fine with Windows 10.
