    Restore the Windows defragmentation tool button in C: properties


    Hallo,

    after having installed (and uninstalled quickly) shareware defrag. software the button in the disk C: properties reads : NO DEFRAGMENTATION TOOL IS CURRENTLY INSTALLED. From the start menu I can start the Windows built-in tool, however not by hitting the button in the Properties. [Windows version 10.0.18362. 476]
    Can I obtain some help to restore the function from the button?
    Thank you.

    Hi, have you restarted the PC?

    Do you have an appropriate System Restore point you might be able to use?

    Build 1909 is a CU not a normal feature update so that upgrade probably won't restore it. An in-place upgrade repair install should, but that's a sledgehammer approach.

    Note that Windows' own defrag maintenance is usually regarded as sufficient (and not for SSD of course).

    Hello, Many thanks.

    YES i restarted several times, I tried with both SFC and DISM unsuccessfully.

    Regretfully the restore point useful for that is not available.

    Regards
