  1. Reset left start menu items that cannot be removed !


    PC suddenly had an issue where the was too took ages to appear and the start button wouldn't respond. Restart, troubleshooter, repair didn't work so had to reset windows.

    PC up and running again but all the programs it removed are still on the start menu !. Some would allow removal when it couldn't find the link but many wont and remain. They won't 'uninstall' as nothing is there and no unpin options. How do I remove the dead wood ??

    Thanks in advance...

    :)

  2. Can't edit start menu left side items

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I apologies for delay in response. I will certainly help you with this.

    You can remove any unwanted app from “most used” app list and that will replace by other less used app. To remove the app, right click on app and click on “Don’t show in list”.

    To remove the folder that appears on the Start menu, I suggest you to follow the below given steps and check if it works:

    • Press Windows key and type Start settings in search box and hit enter.
    • Click on Start in the left panel.
    • Click or tap on the “Choose which folder appears on Start”.
    • Toggle the button off for the folder that you want to remove from the Start menu.

    Hope this information helps. Reply with the updated issue detail for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    How to remove item from alphabetical start menu

    It's called the All Apps list. There are actually two, a personal one per user, and an all users list. These are combined to show as the list of apps in Start. Ghot has pointed you to the personal one (Option One in this tutorial). The All User list is in Option Three.

    Add or Remove Items for All Apps in Start menu in Windows 10  


    Hi, @Brink:

    My caffeine titer is low, so I must be missing some blatant, basic step to add a shortcut to my account's All Apps list in the Start menu (Option1).
    The new process both for creating shortcuts and for adding/removing items to the Win10 start menu has me flummoxed.
    Your tutorials are always "topnotch", so this must be a cockpit error on my part.

    >I would like to follow the suggestion on page 1 of the wushowhide.diagcab tutorial to add a shortcut in All Apps for my account.

    I have d/l the wushowhide.diagcab and saved it to my downloads folder.
    I have done Step 1 on Page 1 of THIS tutorial to navigate to the Start Menu Programs folder.
    But HOW do I actually complete Step 3 to create a shortcut and then add it to the Start Menu "All Apps"??

    I think I need to first somehow create a shortcut for the .cab file and then add it to All Apps in the start menu???

    Please advise.

    Thanks!
    MM

    P.S. I have been postponing the probably inevitable installation of Class Shell.
    I would rather not have to install a 3rd-party program to be able to perform basic Windows tasks.
    But this new workflow in Win10 for a basic functionality might force me to do it.
    Sigh.
