    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:
    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.

    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.
