    Task Bar and Alphabetized List

    Hello:

    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Desktop

    I updated an program.

    Afterward the entry for the program disappeared from the alphabetized list of the Start Menu.

    I searched for the executable and then right clicked and added to the task bar.

    An icon for the executable now shows up in the Start Menu icon area but does not appear in the Start Menu alphabetized list.

    Question: How to produce an entry for this executable file in the Start Menu alphabetized list?

    Thank you...

    task bar not responding

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons why the task bar is not working as expected. One of them may be caused by a corrupted user profile. In your case, we'd like to ask for additional information to help us determine the appropriate steps to solve the issue.
    Please answer the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes or installed updates before the task bar stopped responding?
    • Was the task bar working after you have created the user profile?
    • Have you checked if the issue also exists with the other user profiles?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    For initial troubleshooting, you can follow the steps in this article:
    Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana
    .

    We hope to hear from you soon.
