    File Explorer Disappearance


    Good Day,
    Background info is that I took the plunge and put an SSD in my computer. Since it has been a long time, I decided to go for a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. Using the media creation tool I obtained a Windows 10 Pro N in 64 bit and installed it. Do not know if it matters, but I turned of Cortana.
    Situation: The File Explorer icon in the start menu that is the with the User, Settings and Power Icons is gone. I have become reliant on it and would appreciate any help it facilitating it's return ! Thanks for any assistance

    These icons are optional. You can choose which to show in Settings > Personalization > Start, scroll down and click 'Choose which folders appear on Start'.
