    W10 Pro Start menu problems - can't pin and (almost) empty User menu

    Hey. A couple of issues with W10 start menu ( - not sure if they're symptoms of the same thing. This is GA x64 W10 with all current updates installed

    1) Pin to start menu doesn't pin anything to the start menu. I wanted to pin File History - R click in control panel, select Pin to Start - doesn't pin. Tested on another machine and it works there.

    2) R click the Start button for the Power User menu - all I see is Network Connections - same result with Win X. Again, works as expected on another install.

    Any ideas to save me doing a re-install?

    Edit - SFC reports no violations.

    Edit - switched to a local account on the machine and PU menu is there and working - so is this a permissions thing? My original account is admin.

    Win X menu problem resolved by copying win X group files from users/default appdata to users/me appdata.
