    Start empty and store gone after update

    Hello all,

    I updated the newest windows 10 update. (KB3147458)
    Now my start menu icons are gone, and store is also gone..
    Anyone else with that problem?

    Hi, if you don't have a usable System Restore point, you could try this:
    Open an admin level command prompt
    (E.g. Window key + X, Comand prompt (admin) )

    Type powershell, <Enter>
    At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    > press <Enter>.

    Note: Up to maybe a month or so ago this broke some apps (since build 10586 came out) but it seems MS may have fixed it finally- certainly some have used it recently with success again.

    Yes! thank you!
    Store apps are back in the start menu.
    Seems to work fine again..

    There were some errors, but I think I can ignore those..?
