    Problem pinning apps to the start menu


    I posted this on the MS support forum
    . Can't pin programs to the Start Menu in Windows 10, unless they are present in the "All apps" menu. Neither by drag & drop, nor by right-clicking and selecting "Pin To Start".
    Received this reply..

    wonderded if it was a known solution or not.....
    Try this.


    Go to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer


    change LockedStartLayout from 1 to 0...


    then restart your machine...


    It Works.

    Not sure if this will help.

    To add an item to the Start list, simply drag it into the Start list area. You can do this from within the Start menu of course, but you can also drag an item from the desktop or a File Explorer window: Just drag it onto the Start button first, and after the Start menu has opened you can drag it from there into the Start list.

    What can you add to the Start list? Virtually anything. Documents and other files. Any folder. Desktop application, Modern app, or web app shortcuts.

    You can also reorder the items in the Start list using drag-and-drop.
