    Start Menu won't stay configured

    Hi, all,

    A few weeks back, after what I presume was a routine update, my Start Menu was completely changed. It had a bunch of apps I had never downloaded, either installed or waiting to be installed, the tile positions were all different, and settings such as whether or not to show the app list on the side, and which folder buttons to show, were all different. I figured the update had an unintended effect and tried reconfiguring everything to my taste again. Going into settings, however, showed me that my old settings were still in place, even though they were not reflected in what was really happening. Also, changing them had no effect whatsoever. Even so, I did what I could with the tiles and which apps to pin and so on, but when I restarted everything was changed back. This has been the case since then. Sometimes, the settings menu will work and changes will be reflected, but when I restart it always goes back to this awful, new-pc-like settings and I can't get it to stay the way I want it to. It works perfectly aside from that and I didn't lose any apps or files in the process.

    Any ideas? It's driving me crazy.

    N97 Bluetooth disappeared, won´t start again

    Today without any reason the Bluetooth disappeared, and it won´t start anymore from the connections menu. Any clue where to start looking. Software V20, and no new update available.

    Win10 start menu won`t open (SOLUTION)

    To all people that suffer from same problems as I did:

    -Win 10`s start menu won`t open after restart

    -Win 10`s menu stops working after few days if your pc has been idle or just on.

    -Win 10`s menu works after AC power down

    -Win 10`s menu won`t work after restart unless you log out and relog through CTRL+ALT+DEL

    It took me 7 hours to find cause of this problem, lots program reinstallations and browsing through internet.

    Even Microsoft support didn`t provide the right answer for this problem, they just give you commands and advices to create new accounts, cleanup this, reinstall that, clean boot this, normal boot that. But what they don`t say is that all those problems are
    caused by their so called "feature" that released with their "Fall Creators Update". A feature that saves some data into the memory, so after restart it start`s to open all your chrome windows and other programs.


    Your windows might get some conflicts with some programms during the session, before the update if you shutdown/restart your pc, windows where just dumping all the data out of the window, after the update it started to save it to the memory (including all the
    conflicted data). THANK YOU MICROSOFT!


    Go to your Search icon on the taskbar, type > Settings > Accounts > Sing-In options > Under "Privacy" uncheck/disable "Use my sing-in info to automatically setting up my device after an update or restart" > Restart

    Hope it helps folks!


    And ofcourse:

    Microsoft, you`ve already forced us into updates with Win10.

    Will you now please stop screwing up windows even more with your pointless system breaking features!

    Stop reinventing the wheel.
