    Start button items missing


    File Explorer and Settings icons are sometimes missing when I click the start button. But in the start button, when I click "All Apps" and then return to the start button, File Explorer and Settings sometimes return. Sfc /scannow shows no errors. This problem occurs only on my laptop, not my desktop. Why are they sometimes initially missing?

    Is this a Windows 10 bug?

    :)

    Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3206632) has done something to my start menu.

    You may want to attach a snipping tool picture for clarity. Are you saying the entire start menu/screen is missing when you click left click the Start Button? Do you mean certain items on the screen have been removed?
