  1. My Desktop, Start Menu, Etc.


    Well, Microsoft finally did it. It had to happen but I can't believe the stupidity in their move. My machine is so messed up, as of July 6, 2019, that anything I place on the Desktop will NOT stay after a restart. Games will NOT start from the Start menu at any time. And, they're Microsoft games !!! I was missing all the desktop files I had (files I authored). What are you people doing??????

    First, you start taking away from my memory on C: drive with massive amounts of software, or something. I went from well over 50% free space to well under 50% in 1 (download/update) some months ago. It is now even worse with the latest updates.


    I had to search the User folder to find files and programs I had on the Desktop before these downloads (3 in total). I rescued them, no thanks to Microsoft, but that's not the issue. What have you done to your operating system --- it's now ready for the scrap heap.


    Your operating system is totally out of control, and something had better happen fast because you're in a lot of hot water. What were you thinking?

    My operating system is Win 10, Pro, 64bit. Which is now a pile of junk.

    :)

  2. 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?
