Windows 10: Unable to change Start Menu settings after rolling back from 10547

    Unable to change Start Menu settings after rolling back from 10547

    I tried out the Insider Preview 10547 build last night, but chose to roll back to the full Windows 10 Pro build due to not being able to fully apply custom themes and the context menu not coming up on the desktop. Anyway, the rollback went fine, but now for some reason I can't make adjustment to the Start Menu. When my desktop had finished rolling back to the previous build, most of my live tiles had disappeared, specifically the Settings, CMD, and a few other apps I had pinned to the menu. The only tiles that were still showing were the games I'd pinned before applying the 10547. I can't even bring up the Weather, Store, or many other apps by searching for them. The apps still show in Apps and Features under System in Settings, which means the apps are still installed, I just can't seem to access them, although I haven't tried to get to them through a file explorer yet. Also, under Choose which folders appear on Start, every setting is grayed out. I actually rolled back from a previous test build before and everything came up normally, so I'm not sure what happened this time. I apologize for the rather lengthy post, but I just wanted to be thorough. Thanks in advance.

    Wow, I have this exact same problem. Did you manage to fix this?

    Not yet, but I'm in the habit of checking for updates every night, anyway. The last time I rolled back from an update, I selected the option to not receive preview updates for five days, and that was about three days ago, I think. I know it's not the Windows 10 itself, but something funky did happen when I rolled back from that preview build. I also up dated my laptop to the full version, but it updated itself to Windows 10 Home instead of the Pro that's on my desktop. I think this is because the laptop did the update from the preview version instead of a completed wipe and reinstall of Windows 8 to 10, like I did on my desktop. Anyway, the next preview build update prompt I get, I'll either created a restore point before clicking Restart, or just apply the thing.
