    Chrome is set as my default browser in Windows 10. When I click on an internet shortcut on the start menu, the site opens in Edge. How do I change it to open in Chrome?

  2. Windows 10 Start Menu won't open.

    Hi Dougie,

    Corrupted system files could be one of the reason why Start Menu is not opening.

    As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest following the steps listed in this article:
    Troubleshoot problems with the Start menu or Cortana
    see if it helps resolve the issue.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

  3. No items in start menu


    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    First I would suggest you to click on all apps in start menu and see if you can find the apps there, if yes then right click on the app and select Pin to start.

    If the issue persist then I would suggest you to run sfc scan and check if it helps:

    The “sfc /scannow” command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    a) Press “Windows Logo” + “X” keys on the keyboard and select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from
    that menu.

    b) On the command prompt window, type the following command, and then press “Enter

    sfc /scannow

    c) Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the scan.

    If still the issue persist run DISM and check:

    • Open an Administrator CMD window. If you can’t find a way, use these steps:
      • Press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open Task Manager.
      • Click File > Run New Task
      • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
      • Type CMD
    Type the following commands at the CMD prompt:

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Hope this information helps and let us know the status of the issue we will be glad to help you further.

    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.


    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.
