    Remove a corrupt tile from the W10 start menu


    A tile corrupted on the Start menu, and is not responsive to activation. The tile context menu only lists tile sizes and nothing else. I ran sfc /scannow and the system files are all OK. Cleared the IconCache.db as well as the Explorer, in the locations listed below and rebooted but the tile is still there. How can I fix this?
    C:\Users\\AppData\Local\IconCache.db C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer

    :)

    We appreciate your response and the information provided. We suggest that you follow these troubleshooting steps and see if they help:

    • Start a CMD window (Windows-X, Command Prompt)
    • Then type in C:\windows\system32\tdlrecover.exe -reregister -resetlayout -resetcache

    Reboot is not required but a quick reboot may clear up any residual issues after the command is run.

    Disclaimer: Corruption recovery removes any manual pins from
    Start menu
    . Apps should still be visible, but you’ll need to re-pin any secondary tiles and/or pin app tiles to the main Start view.

    We're looking forward to your feedback.

  3. Windows 10 I can't remove a tile from the start menu.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family. I would be happy to assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that you want to remove a tile from the start screen of a deleted folder.

    Use the following steps to remove tiles from your Start Screen.

    Please follow the below steps to remove the tile.

    • Press the Windows (
      Remove a corrupt tile from the W10 start menu [​IMG]
      ) key
      to open the Start screen.
    • Right-click on the tile you want to remove.
    • Select Unpin from Start to remove the tile.
    Ideally, the above steps should remove the tile which you want to. However, if it fails to, I would suggest you to Restore Default Start Screen Tiles. Please follow the below steps.

    • Press the Windows key + R from the keyboard to open the Run Command Dialog Box.
    • Enter the following command: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows, which will open the Microsoft Windows App-data folder.
    • Scroll down to find these two files, namely, item-data file and the item-data.bak.
    • Select both files to delet, right-click on it and select Delete option to send it to the Recycle bin. Don’t press Shift to delete it permanently, let it go to recycle bin. On the safe side you can make a backup copy of these two files on another disk location.
    • Restart your PC or log out and log in again. Now you will see Windows 8.x Start Screen reset to default tiles.
    • Now re-arrange the tile as you want and new tiles will also be created automatily when you install any apps from Store.
    Note: If anything went wrong and you want to revert start screen tiles to your tiles. restore item data files from recycle bin or from the location where you backed up to the Windows app data folder.

    Hope the above information was helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be glad to help you.

    Thank You.
