    Just a thought, are you synchronising your language/keyboard settings through MS account?
    Yes, but I also have checked the settings on all computers to be sure they are as I want to.

    Trying to customize the start thingy, I get this after resizing some. They are cut off Feedback submitted

    Re arranging fixed it, but it shouldn't happen. I miss the 8.1 start screen but I will stay with this and keep providing feedback every time this new start does something wrong.

    Command prompt said operation successful, but before/after reboot no change. What I did find out is Admin tools can be pinned to start from control panel, which is ok now, but if Redmond is thinking of ditching(personally I think hiding it is more exact) the control panel, the maybe using the desktop toolbar in the future is an option to access them. Thanks anyhow Adam.

    Not a bug. but...Has anyone seen disk cleanup or optimize in the start menu on Build 10041? Maybe I'm overseeing it, but to use them I either have to use search(fastest method) or use them from file explorer(Which yeah is a logical place seeing that our partitions & drives are represented there) then pin them to taskbar when I really want to pin then to start.
    I did it somehow by shuffling folders and shortcuts around in ProgramData/StartMenu and AppData/StartMenu.

    Windows File Explorer Inconsistent and Incorrect Long Paths Handling


    Kari said: View Post
    Let's do our own share..
    File Explorer is not managing long paths correctly or consistently. On both the C:, D: and E: drives I have copied a folder structure that exceeds MAX_PATH. The root drive always seems to be navigable. Some additional drives work properly. Others like D:\E: shown here can only be navigated to MAX_PATH even though the deeper folders exist and can be accessed from other tools. Specifically I can see the fourth folder on the D:\E: drive but clicking that folder from windows explorer does nothing. Appending "\\?\" to the front of the D:\E: drive does not change the outcome.

    Some, but not all additional drives exhibit this behavior. I have a 250G SSD on SATA that, when mounted as a secondary drive, works properly (like the C: drive). I also have a 750G SSD on PCIe that, when mounted as a secondary drive, works improperly (like the D:\E: drive). All of my large (>2TB) drives work improperly.

    I have submitted this as a problem via the Windows 10 Feedback. This bug also exists on Windows 8.1.

    I don't understand why MS refuses to implement long path names by default.

    Thanks, Admin tools are not showing up in the start menu like they "should" so I did it the long way to "old" control panel and from there I could pin to start like you said.
    Yeah, this schizophrenic menu is driving me crazy. I'm delving into the under belly of the beast in the hope that I can make it work for me. I know there are a number of ways to workaround this, but hey.... why is this so difficult?

    until then.....

    I go to the standard StartMenu locations, almost everything goes into All User menu now, so look there first.

    All Users: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools
    Per User : C:\Users\Dad\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    from there you can either launch what you need or pin the shortcut

    tip: pin these locations to explorer (drag and drop the Programs folder onto explorer on the taskbar)

    edit: interesting ... I could not pin the Administrative tools in All users menu to Start, but I could pin the folder on Control Panel (this was named Administrative 1 and Disk cleanup also appeared on the main pane (Administrative tools also showed up in that crappy list that is absolutely useless, that is of course my opinion.
