  1. Start Menu, Window Personalization, and Programming - I have a few questions


    I would like to know a few things:

    1. Where are live Tile files located in the hard drive, or how would I go about editing or adding them?

    2. Is there any way to get the classic Windows 7 Style Windows Round edges and rounded window operations for Windows 10?

    3. I am looking to create a Windows 10 Application, I do not have much coding experience, a little Java, and Batch knowledge so are there any free programs that don't require coding experience?

    4. In a program Batch or Executable are there any ways to upload files to something like OneDrive For stuff like IDK non-important userdata such as settings for a program?

    :)

  2. Files missing from "Start Menu" "All Programs"

    RE: WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 32bit, Files missing from "Start Menu" "All Programs" list.

    I have several "start menu" programs missing in my "all programs" list. One of the missing entries is the "accessories" folder and all related files.

    As far as I can tell all of the missing files are on the system and they can be found by using the "start menu search" facility. This problem is occurring with other users but I can not find a solution which works to get things back the way they were after installing the OS.

    I am seeing the missing apps and other items at this location in iexplore.exe %allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs .

    Everything I have tried to get these items back into my "start menu" "all programs" list has been met with failure except creating a shortcut. A shortcut is not the real fix as it leaves two entries in the folder.

    When I right click on the highlighted "all Programs" box, in the start menu, a small options list pops up, if "open all users" is selected a new window pops up. Inside that window I can click on the programs folder where I can see the missing entries that should appear on my "all programs" list plus those which I presently see on my "all programs" list together in a single directory listing.

    How can I get the above directory list of programs back into the "start menu" "all programs" area so I do not have to go through this extra window and select the programs folder to locate what I wish to run?

    I also noticed my accessories folder has a lock on it while I am in the primary user administrator account. If you know how to get rid of the lock it would be helpful however I can find that information when I get a chance to look up the answer?

    I noticed some hidden (first tier) folders on the C: drive which I made visible while leaving protection on the OS folders. I can now see these folders in an iexplore.exe directory listing. This did not fix the problem in the "all programs" file selection list and I do not remember if this folder was hidden when the OS was installed.

    When I opened up the system to allow a login directly into the Administrator account everything shows up the same as it did when the OS installed along with all other programs installed afterward.

    After some progress I am still here *Bang Head :banghead: and slowly getting closer to an answer. Can anyone help me get there a little faster?

    Missing programs from start menu

    Hi,

    Doing an update should not affect the personalization of your computer, nor even the settings on your Start menu. To further isolate the cause of this issue, we need to ask you the following questions below:

    • When was the last time you have used the programs you have mentioned?
    • By going to Windows Settings, have you checked if the said programs are still installed on your computer?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve this issue you are having?

    We are looking forward for your response.
