    Items some missing from Windows 10 start menu.


    Suddenly the "Settings" and "File Explorer" options are missing from the start menu of my Windows 10x64 Pro installation. Any idea how to get them back? I tried going back to a restore point when I knew they were there they still didn't come back.

    Thank You for the information however when I went and checked the settings for the 2 options that are missing they are both already turned on! I tried turning them off and then back on and they still do not show up? Any idea what I should try next?

    Do you have an older restore point to go back to?

    If not, or it doesn't help, then you could do a repair install without losing anything.
