    Quick Access Links Went AWOL


    I don't know what happened but my quick access links are now missing in windows explorer. I tried just adding them again but nothing happens. This happened once before and I don't remember how I fixed it, but I know that it is possible. What would cause this so I can avoid doing it again? And how do I get them back? I'm finding this very inconvenient because I use the public folders to store files and navigating to them every time is a pain.

    :)

    Windows 10 Start Menu

    About one day after installing Windows 10 the start menu went AWOL and I cannot find a way to restore it. How do I achieve this?
