    Windows 10 update killed all my customized pinned start menu tiles


    After microsoft shoved 1709 down my throat, all my personalized pinned start menu tiles are gone.

    I have to re-pin all the apps that I had.

    Is there a way to save my custom pinned tile settings so that I don't have to redo them after every big update?

    What a pain in the ass.

    The powershell export-startlayout only affects the default user, not my current user account.
    So I haven't found a way to restore my pinned tiles.

    How do I get rid of the Pinned tiles button when I click on Start. I don't use tiles and it wasn't there before. Now, I have to click on all apps or start to get my list of programs. Pinned tiles is default. Thank you

    All customizations tend to disappear at each Version Upgrade [twice a year] and some Build updates as the Registry gets some rewriting, good to save the process or files for doing them to reinstall. I prefer the earlier WinXP Games and save the file for reinstalling, doesn't take long. Same for some of the Tutorials @Brink posts which are pretty good.
