  1. Start Menu Bug - Tiles not updating / Layout not updating


    I tried customizing my Start menu - removing the tiles, that I didn't need and trying to add the ones that I wanted.


    After every restart it resets to the default one. It even displays the applications that I previously uninstalled. Also "My computer" cannot even be added there. It says it has been added to the Start menu, but it doesn't appear there.


    I obviously removed all the bloatware by Microsoft, but it still appears there for some reason (used Bulk Crap Uninstaller to really remove the PUPs).

    It's a CLEAN installation of Windows - Brand new notebook, first configure. All updates done (but it was bugged even before the updates).


    System info:


    notebook Lenovo E580

    OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    CPU: Core i7 8550U

    GPU: AMD Radeon RX 550

    Storage: SSD


    Tried rearranging it many times, tried many reboots, manually installed new updates, ....




    ... nothing works.

    :)

    Start menu tiles layout savefile?


    Hello tin Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    I hate to say this but.... There isn't actually any configuration file to find. You have the option to pin or unpin items to the Start tile area as you would on the main task bar. When going to make a few changes perhaps a slight pictorial at how to do things can help here!

    As always it looks a little clumsy with all the tiles that come pre-pinned and you would rather rearrange and possibly even resize things along with putting them into separate categories?! Have a look at how that would look instead of the first mess seen there.


    Start Menu Bug - Tiles not updating / Layout not updating [​IMG]


    A slight change of appearance wouldn't you say? And how is that done? First the Start tile area can be clicked and dragged to an extent in order to see that resized by clicking on and holding an edge either horizontal or vertical. First you may want to resize things like the tiles themselves if you are not looking to take up the entire screen.


    Start Menu Bug - Tiles not updating / Layout not updating [​IMG]


    Some like Edge will see the options for Large and Wide and when using Small things can be packed in rather tightly.

    You will also notice that the entire area has been reshaped as mentioned before by clicking and grabbing the edge as seen in the lower right corner for vertical there. So we went from this....

    to this in a matter of minutes!

    And for something different from the default Windows automatically adjusts all we can change a few other things as well. How about the background? Transparent or Solid color or theme you choose or create?


    Start Menu Bug - Tiles not updating / Layout not updating [​IMG]


    For something like that or for the option of manually choosing a color for both taskbar and Start menu you have to turn something off in the Start>Settings>Personalization dept.

    All this is done manually each time you run across the default tiles if you should happen to see any upgrade to repair install or reset action to bring 10 back to Square #1. Desktop themes and such are not stored in the same fashion seen in previous versions.
