    You can't pin portable apps to start.

    You can't find portable apps with search.

    All you can do is make a shortcut and stick it in C:\Users\<whatever>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs (or put it in %programdata% for everyone)

    This is a rubbish change in Windows 10 I've already reported. Windows 7 and 8 did not work the same.
    In WIndows 7 and 8 you could pin the shortcut of portable apps to the Start Menu. In Windows 10 as well but the bug here is that if you unpin the shortcut and pin it again, it won't get pinned again. You'd have to reboot the PC and pin it again for the change to apply.

    Press type the name of your portable program and see if you can find it.

    I think you will find you can not.

    Ah, that's what you meant. I tried it and I can't find it indeed, it's bizarre. However, the problem I was describing is different from this, it's about pinning the shortcuts to the Start Menu. Nevertheless, this all does mean that the Start Menu really needs to be reviewed.

    Perhaps.

    What you can do is stick a shortcut in the start menu. That is what I do.


    Imagine you have all your portable programs stored in one place you can just write the lot with a loop and it will at a shortcut for every .exe it finds.

    Like this for example...
    Code:
    # Shortcuts will be created in $ShortcutRoot for programs found in $ExeRoot (except for $Exclusions)
    $ExeRoot="C:\Users\Hali\OneDrive\Programs\"
    $ShortcutRoot=$Home + "\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\"
    $Exclusions = @("gdisk64","nvspbind","StartKiller","UnlockerInject32")
    
    $PoShExeRoot="C:\Users\Hali\OneDrive\Programs\Powershell Scripts\"
    $PoShShortcutRoot=$Home + "\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Powershell Scripts\"
    $PoShExclusions = @("Sleep Mac Transmission","Wake Mac Transmission","WakeTransmission")
    
    $SysinternalsExeRoot="C:\Users\Hali\OneDrive\Programs\SysinternalsSuite\"

    I'm really not into writing writing commands. But I could try and move the shortcuts to the Start menu folder. See if that would work. Nevertheless, it's weird that there are such random bugs that you don't know the cause of.

    That would work - it is the same. You can just right click on each .exe and then it will make a shortcut on your desktop. You can then copy it to C:\Users\<whatever your name is>\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\

    I've no idea why you think I personally or anyone else should have a clue about why it works this way (or why it isn't fixed) as tenforums.com isn't a Microsoft affiliated site

    Anyway I've been moaning about this bug to MS, including reporting it to their feedback app, since October 2014 and got no response but this does work as a temporary (or perhaps permanent) workaround..

    I've no idea why you think I personally or anyone else should have a clue about why it works this way (or why it isn't fixed) as tenforums.com isn't a Microsoft affiliated site
    Oh I didn't mean it that way that you guys should know the cause. I was referring with "you" as to us people in general having random Windows issues that don't seem to make any sense (i.e. the cause is unknown). I find it weird that we have such issues.

    Anyway I've been moaning about this bug to MS, including reporting it to their feedback app, since October 2014 and got no response but this does work as a temporary (or perhaps permanent) workaround..
    I'm having this doubt for a long time that MS is paying attention to all those feedback comments and is really trying to fix all of them. I guess only time will tell.

    Actually I think they don't care.

    You should read what old Apple guys are saying about the new MacOS Sierra released to public on beta today. I don't want to use a bad word so I'll just say fub (as normal).
