  1. Windows 101809 Applications Not Showing in Start menu programs for Standard Users


    Hi


    I recently upgraded lab Pcs to Win10 1809 and installed many applications.

    All applications installed ok and when tested as an administrator all ran as expected.

    When I log in as our student standard user NONE of the applications appear in the Start menu programs.

    When I search for the applications they do not show either.


    Log off and back on as administrator and all are fine.


    The applications are deployed using SCCM and none of the applications were set to install just for the administrator.

    Similar applications deployed the same method are working fine for all users.


    Regards

    Alan

    Applications still showing on Start menu after powershell deletion


    Hi,

    I've used powershell to remove some apps (like Xbox games).

    On one account, it cleaned up the start menu just fine.

    Second account, they were showing on the start menu, so I ran powershell again and verified everything was gone that I wanted, but Xbox is still showing on the menu list. *Not* as a tile, but in the "All Apps" list. I have also tried looking at the Start Menu in File Explorer for that User and can not see the App listed.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks,

  3. Start Menu Program List

    In the Start Menu, it has the standard, Power, Settings, and User Name Options, but then to the right of it, it has a long list of practically every program i have.....is there a way to disable that list from showing on the start menu? I just want it to
    be very basic.

    Files missing from "Start Menu" "All Programs"

    RE: WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 32bit, Files missing from "Start Menu" "All Programs" list.

    I have several "start menu" programs missing in my "all programs" list. One of the missing entries is the "accessories" folder and all related files.

    As far as I can tell all of the missing files are on the system and they can be found by using the "start menu search" facility. This problem is occurring with other users but I can not find a solution which works to get things back the way they were after installing the OS.

    I am seeing the missing apps and other items at this location in iexplore.exe %allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs .

    Everything I have tried to get these items back into my "start menu" "all programs" list has been met with failure except creating a shortcut. A shortcut is not the real fix as it leaves two entries in the folder.

    When I right click on the highlighted "all Programs" box, in the start menu, a small options list pops up, if "open all users" is selected a new window pops up. Inside that window I can click on the programs folder where I can see the missing entries that should appear on my "all programs" list plus those which I presently see on my "all programs" list together in a single directory listing.

    How can I get the above directory list of programs back into the "start menu" "all programs" area so I do not have to go through this extra window and select the programs folder to locate what I wish to run?

    I also noticed my accessories folder has a lock on it while I am in the primary user administrator account. If you know how to get rid of the lock it would be helpful however I can find that information when I get a chance to look up the answer?

    I noticed some hidden (first tier) folders on the C: drive which I made visible while leaving protection on the OS folders. I can now see these folders in an iexplore.exe directory listing. This did not fix the problem in the "all programs" file selection list and I do not remember if this folder was hidden when the OS was installed.

    When I opened up the system to allow a login directly into the Administrator account everything shows up the same as it did when the OS installed along with all other programs installed afterward.

    After some progress I am still here *Bang Head :banghead: and slowly getting closer to an answer. Can anyone help me get there a little faster?
