    Windows 10

    After upgrading, is the old list of "pin to start menu" accessable?

    I have upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10 without recording the list of programs that I had attached to the start menu. I would like to find that list if it is stored somewhere. If so, where is it?

    I found this old thread: Where is the list of pinned start menu and taskbar items stored in Windows 7 - Super User

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu
    %appdata% is C:\Users\<youraccountname>\AppData\Roaming

    Look in C:\Windows.old for the above, may still be there if you haven't deleted that directory structure yet.

    C:\Windows.old\Users\<youraccountname>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu

    It's different for Windows 10.
