    It will take quite sometime.

    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.

    it ended with the #2 " successfully repaired..." but it didnt resolve the problem.

    Perhaps a restart might improve ?

    Although sfc /scannow reports successful repair, it is no harm to run the dism command too.
    Would you care to give it a go ?

    Look under the following registry keys for a value named: NoChangeStartMenu

    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer


    If it exists, change its data to 0 or simply delete it.

    I have exactly the same problem as joeyTribbiani, can't pin, unpin, modify my icons (position, size), or change the group names, actually i cant do anything to personalize the start menu, and some icons have dissapeared leaving just a blank space, I have almost 1 month with this problem, but this is the first time that I see someone else having this problem, no one says anything about this, and I have tried almost every solution:
    - Already scanned with powershell, and got that no problems were registered.
    - Changed theme to default
    - Uninstalled avast antivirus
    - Restarted (way too many times)
    - Updates are up to date
    - Did the App Count, its 196 (So the 532 limit is way above my count)
    - Did safe boot without the network option
    - And did KeithM solution without luck. (Although under HKCU the folder "Explorer" didnt exist, so i created one, created the registry in there and checked the value as 0, and still no luck)
    If i find a solution I'll post it back in here, so please if you do too, mention it in this thread, because i havent found any other one mentioning this same problem.
    P.S. By the way, another weird thing that I noticed is that under Settings > Personalization > Start, the option "Show more Tiles" is grayed out, and it is turned off by default, so I cant change it to on.

    What do you see if you click on More? That's where I see the Pin option along with a few others.

    Same as you. But I dont want to "pin to taskbar" I want to "pin to start". And the pin/unpin to start is not there (nor anywhere else).

    As you said FigueroaMX, under CurrentUser there were no "explorer"-value. And under the CurrentMachine there is no NoChangesStartMenu. Maybe if I create those. But what type should the NoChangesStartMenu be?

    I created the values in the registry according to KeithM. Created NoChangeStartMenu as DWORD and hex value 0. But still no luck. I will post if I find a solution. I think we are not the only ones with this problem.
