Windows 10: Unable to Pin Shortcut to Start

    Unable to Pin Shortcut to Start

    I installed Ccleaner and inadvertently unchecked the 'Create shortcut on start menu.'

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled, created a shortcut and copied to the 2 Start Menu/Programs but it still won't show up in the start menu.

    Any ideas?

    A standard install of CCleaner should create a CCleaner folder in the 'All users' Start menu, %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and two shortcuts in that folder, one to the 'CCleaner Homepage' and another named 'CCleaner' and pointing to the CCleaner executable.

    Do you have that folder and its shortcuts in that location? If so, CCleaner should appear in the 'All apps' list on Start. If you have just put the shortcuts there it may help to restart the PC.
