    Accidentally Deleted Shortcuts in Start Menu


    I recently posted about another issue, and while fixing it, I accidentally deleted all the program shortcuts that are normally present in the start menu's "all programs" section. This includes things like command prompt and PowerShell. Is there anyway to reset this or fix this issue?

    Hello Travis,

    If you like, here is a copy of all the Start Menu shortcuts from my system in a ZIP file below. You can just copy the ones you're missing back into your Start Menu folder.

    You will need to unblock the ZIP files below before copying the shortcuts into your folders.

    Location 1: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    User_Start Menu.zip

    Location 2: %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Start Menu.zip

    I also found this page though a google search and it worked! Thanks a lot! Btw, the files I downloaded (the folder in AppData) weren't blocked for me at all, dunno why that is.
