  1. Strange behaviour of pinned menu icons

    As we don’t have a ‘ bags and strange behaviour ‘ child forum, I will post here

    the past few days I am experiencing some of my pinned menu icons lose their graphics, if I resize them then back to where they were ere , the icon reverts to normal.
    this first happened with the chrome and Firefox icons, but now two others have been affected.

    has anyone seen this before doesn’t happen every time I start up.....but can’t explain why this is happening..

    Cortana strange behaviours

    Hello Gabriel,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we can identify why Cortana is not working properly:

    • Have you recently made any change/updates prior to this issue?
    • Did you try to login to a different user account to check if it is the same?

    In the meantime, you can try these steps to isolate the issue:

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you perform the troubleshooting steps listed in this


    on how to troubleshoot Cortana issues

    Let us know the outcome.

  3. Start menu default internet acces icon screwed?

    Try removing that icon from the start menu, going to profram file folder for firefox, and doing "pin 2 start menu".

    Cortana's Strange Behaviour After Creator's Edition Update

    Interestingly, my Cortana also presents such a list, no numbers.

    Try 'The first' 'The second' etc.

    ...which works well, until.... the list of available options extends beyond the box as here:

    So this British English-sounding voice starts reading them 'Which Minitool do you wanna open...'

    And reads the list...after which I see

    Oh, come on Microsoft, this is as pathetic as your start menu, where I see

    - these shortcuts, each for a different program, being taken from the folders of 2,3,or 4 per program in my nested start menu.

    Which is one of a number of reasons I choose to use Classic Shell start menu which actually works. Reliably.
