    System apps missing from Start Menu Windows 10


    So all of a sudden, certain system apps have disappeared from my start menu. I type their names in the search and I get a "no results found."Examples:- Create and Format Hard Disk Partitions- Device Manager- Default Apps- etcI can still launch them if I go and find them manually through control panel or right clicking the start menu and they work perfectly fine but it's very cumbersome. They all look like apps that don't actually have shortcuts when I go and look in the start menu folders so I'm sort of at a loss as to what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    :)

  3. Windows 10 Start Menu all apps / tiles missing

    So I woke my computer up from sleep last night and this is what I was welcomed with:

    System apps missing from Start Menu Windows 10 111286d1485974255t-windows-10-start-menu-all-apps-tiles-missing-start-menu-gone.jpg


    All of a sudden my start menu had no apps listed and no live tiles to speak of. So I did my googleing and I found this microsoft answer page: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...0-b988cd6da49a

    I tried every step in their. After all said and done, I got installed programs to show up, but the live tiles that usually show to the right did not come back. I was ok with that, thinking I would work on this today and find a solution to that problem.

    I just woke up the computer again from sleep and the start menu is blank AGAIN. Before this started happening last night, I have not installed any new software nor has windows ran any updates.

    I'm at a loss. I tried system recovery and to roll back to a few days prior, but I keep getting an error after recovery is attempted stating that windows recovery wasn't able to fully complete due to a certain file (i can retry recovery and post picture of error if needed).

    So any suggestions on whats my next step? I thought maybe I had a malware issue, but II have avast and malware antibytes installed and they showed no hits when the scans where run.

    Any suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated. Hope you all have a Great Turkey Day!

    PS, I have to work today from 4pm to 6am, so If I do not reply right away I apologize.

    System apps missing from Start Menu Windows 10

    Windows 10 Start Menu all apps / tiles missing

    Hi There,

    I had the exact same problem. Showed up last night and I used the computer all day today with my blank Start Menu. Even if I tried searching for an app on the start menu, it would find it, but if I clicked on it, nothing would happen.

    Then I found this post, also from this forum, and it solved the issue for me.

    I didn't even know Windows TenForums, but I felt compeled to register an account just to answer you so you could solve your problem too. Hope it does.

    Best regards from Portugal,

    José Rodrigues
