    Start Menu resets on sign in


    Since I upgraded to Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018 update), my Start menu resets every time I sign in. All the installed apps show "New", the tiles get reset, and all Start Settings get reset too. Also, after some time, when I navigate to the Start Settings, all options turn off; and when I try to change them, they don't save.

    Thankfully, this tutorial helps me restore my custom Start layout; however, it's not convenient.

    Can someone please help me fix this issue?

    :)

    Windows 10 Start menu is empty

    Hi. Steps 1 and 2 didn't do much but step 3 has restored what looks like the list of original Microsoft apps but no sign of any of the many apps I have installed. And there are no tiles in the start menu. Any suggestions please?
