    Start menu - installed/third-party apps/programs not showing/opening

    Hi all,

    I installed the latest Creators Update, but apps/programs I installed (e.g. Chrome, Office, Netflix) have disappeared from the start menu. They will appear in the search in the start menu, but installed apps like Netflix will not open.

    I have already tried this: Reset Start Layout in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Customization Tutorials .

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi jcm7. Welcome to the TenForums @jcm7

    Could I suggest you try creating another user Id and see if the problem persists. While not an ideal solution if it works you can copy your data files over to the new id.
