    How do I get back the live tiles?


    I am using Insider Preview version of Windows 10 and suddenly the live tiles feature has disappeared. How do I get it back?
    I have screen captured how my screen looks:

    Right click on desired items from the All Apps list, "Pin to Start", "resize" if you wish, then right click again to "Turn on Live Tile"

    Click image for larger version.

    2 suggestions :

    1. Right click at Start button > select Command Prompt (Admin) > click Yes > type powershell > Enter > wait a bit foe it to execute.
    At the flashing PS C:\WINDOWS\system32, copy/paste this command.............................

    Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10

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

    > Enter.

    2. With the presumption that this user account is corrupted...............................
    Create another user account with exactly the same privileges as the one in question > Login to it and see if Menu Tiles are present.
    If they are, please use this new account for a few days to make sure all are working fine.
    If everything is fine after a few days, go back to the old account > backup files you want to keep > delete the corrupt account.
