    Can't pin some items in Start Menu to Start Screen?

    Any of the items under games in this screen shot will not pin to my Start Screen? They will pin to my taskbar though. It's windows 10 Enterprise if that matters. I can right click and select Pin to Start, but nothing happens. Right click again and Pin To Start is still listed as an option, but doesn't do anything?

    The MS games are a bit wonky. I had to reinstall them on a few preview releases because they either were not upgraded with everything else (the tiles didn't migrate, not an update to the games) or the games didn't load.

    This might be due to their being associated with Games Explorer - not sure. Games Explorer is all I want anyway - try pinning that one or drag & drop it.

    See if you can drag & drop the game from All apps to Start. I just tried both (pin to Start, and drag & drop for two different games) with success.

    I'll try it on my Win7 upgraded box, but the games will have to be installed on that so it sort of invalidates the test. I'll post back later if I don't forget .

    I've never had an issue in Windows 7 or 8.1. They seen fine on my other PC's that I upgraded to Windows 10. Dragging and dropping works. Didn't know you could do that actually? Thanks for the reply. Problem solved I guess?
