    Programs Missing From Start Menu (Windows 10)

    Update:

    I am pretty sure I am being affected by the "more than 512 apps" bug, which causes random apps to disappear from the Windows 10 Start Menu. I apparently have 656 apps, as reported by Get-StartApps mentioned in the post below.

    Windows 10 Can't Display More than 512 Apps in the Start Menu

    About a month ago they were testing a fix but I can't find anything that says when it will be released...

    Office 2016 programs not showing up in 'Start Menu' in Windows 10

    Seems like there's a limit to the number of apps that can be displayed in start menu. If you, like me, have more than 512 apps, not all apps will be shown.

    To view how many apps you have, type this PowerShell command line :

    Get-StartApps | measure

    Anyone with that many apps must be suffering from "app-oplexy."

    511, here so I'm good, for now. I think I need a bigger monitor though. *Wink

    Having some apps is good, so having more must be better.

    The person that tried to load the 513th app and failed sure must have a lot of time on their hands. *Rolleyes

    Maybe they should do a clean install of Windows 10 and try again. *Party

    They probably know how many installs can be done from a USB flash drive before it wears out. *Eek

    Hi there

    That's the whole point of a CASCADING menu system - you only need to display a few and then "Drill down".

    Actually with the better (IMO) search function I don't even bother using the menu much any more apart from starting it up - I then simply type anywhere in the menu area the name of the application -- it appears often after you've only typed 3 or 4 characters.

    Things like Mobile phones and tablets which rely on HORIZONTAL scrolling mechanisms for applications might well find the 512 limit a pain - but I hate that whole mechanism of scrolling endlessly anyway.

    The W10 search for me works brilliantly -- I hide the bottom search bar - it's easier just to type on the menu area what you want to run. I only use the menu just to see what's installed and sometimes by "Opening File Location" I can pin the application either to quick launch taskbar or Desktop (or both).

    It would be even better if you could just type on the desktop area without even having to use the menu at all (perhaps that's what they SHOULD have done in W8) but the current method is just fine.

    I agree with the other posts -- some people obviously have TOO MUCH time on their hands -- as they say "The Devil makes work for Idle Hands" !!!.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    How can people make fun over this. My cousin who collected Beanie Babies might well start collecting apps. I can see a whole new market for collectable apps with themes. Apps inspired by romance novels might be a big seller.

    I'm afraid many of the 'applications' (Apps can't be displayed in this menu), are also executables found by Windows that I wouldn't have had in the old startmenu. So the count is much higher than what would be found in my personal and the all users start menu folder.

    That is the problem.

    So if you're really good at not using ' too many programs' -which I find a very strange thing to consider yourself a cool dude by-, count the exe files in your Alphabet-menu and tell me how many programs are in there you do NOT use. :)

    That wud be cool. ;-)
