Windows 10: Pinned Start Menu Items Being Removed for Non-Administrative Users
Pinned Start Menu Items Being Removed for Non-Administrative Users
Hello, I am hoping that someone might have a solution to this issue. I am currently running the following hardware/software:
Dell T5810 Workstation
Fresh install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit
With a specific Group Policy for Non-Administrators in place
I have searched the forums for quite some time now, but I have not found anyone that is experiencing the exact same issue that I am. I am currently using a Group Policy that supports the following:
"Remove pinned programs list from Start Menu" = DISABLED
"Remove common program groups from Start Menu" = DISABLED
"Remove frequent programs list from the Start Menu" = ENABLED
"Remove Default Programs link from the Start Menu" = ENABLED
"Remove pinned programs from the Taskbar" = DISABLED
Basically, I can pin items correctly to the Start Menu under the user if I add them to the Administrators user group, but when I attempt to log them back in as a Non-Administrators user (I manually remove them from the Administrators user group), all of the icons show up at login temporarily, but then disappear while I am physically looking at them. This ONLY occurs under Non-Administrative users, which I have to have in place due to security reasons.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. If absolutely necessary, I do have a recorded video of this occurring.
Still have heard nothing about this for several months. Has anyone else run into it? ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
OK, after a TON of additional testing, and nearly 6 months of letting this sit, I was FINALLY able to find a fix for my own issue. Apparently a group policy was put into place that Hides all folders on the user-specific (top) section of the Start menu. The name of this setting is "Remove user's folders from the Start Menu". I simply set this option to "Not Configured", performed a "gpupdate /force" command, and then tested. Everything is functioning normally now! =)
Just thought I would share...in the case that anyone else ever runs into this issue. Thanks!
I pinned Windows Update to my Start Menu. After some time, I noticed it was gone and tried to re-pin it. But when I right-clicked on the setting, all that showed up was "Unpin from Start." Selecting that option causes the dialog window to...
I'm running the RTM on a netbook and have noticed that, unlike in Windows 7/8/8.1, I'm no longer able to hit Start and type in an executable. I have a bunch of portable apps that I typically type in and pull up. Now, the Start menu search pulls up...
This is an option on the Windows 7 Start Menu. On Windows 8.x, I used Start8 to get the Administrative Tools menu. But since Windows 10 now has a native start menu, I'd rather not mess with third part start menus. Right now I go to Control Panel to...
Why is there a limit of items that can be pinned to the start menu?
In previous builds there was a higher limit or no limit. If the item listed was off-screen, you just scrolled whether or not the start menu was full size or not. In...
