    How do I get rid of <No Text> in Start Menu?


    Using Windows 10 ver 1909. As attached, the Start Menu displays a folder called <No Text> which leads to nothing. Nothing like that in All Programs when I navigated there. Then, I did a search on C:, to no avail. Nothing. Google has nothing for me. :-( TIA.

    Hi, this appears to be a screenshot of OpenShell.

    The area you are concerned with is controlled by the options in these settings for OpenShell:

    This suggests the relevant item may be undefined or abnormal.

    It seems that Pictures is what should be there in the menu.

    Have you accidentally deleted your Pictures folder in C:\Users\<your_username>?

    Try creating a folder called Pictures in C:\Users\<your_username> if one does not exist there.

    Thanks for your response. No, the Pictures folder is still there, as I had never deleted it, anyway.

    I use Start10 and I have never had a problem like that whilst using it. Maybe try that instead of Classic Shell.

    Well, I'll be darned! I went in there now and it is all fixed!!! Did not even have to go into Classic Shell! Bizarre!

    Thanks for your suggestions.
