Windows 10: Windows 10 update killed all my customized pinned start menu tiles

    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.
