    No system restore point.

    What happened is that I installed an app and I accidentally clicked "Install" for a chrome plug-in. It removed some shortcuts on my start menu and I was just "Okay. I'll just pin them again." And at this point I already scheduled a chkdsk for c: so I restarted my PC first. But when I came back I found out that Pin to Start is gone. I removed the chrome plugin and the app itself but still, the problem is still there.

    EDIT: Cannot drag from "All apps" list to Start Menu icons area also. It shows a red error circle. And when right clicking a shortcut on the Start Menu, there is no "Unpin from Start"

    As much as possible, I want to fix this problem without refreshing my pc.

    Hello, :)

    You might see if this may be able to restore "Pin to Start".
