Windows 10: Some Apps not showing in "All Aps"

    Some Apps not showing in "All Aps"

    Some of my existing apps, Xara Web Designer for example, are not showing in the Start Menu "All Apps" at all. I can start Xara and run it OK from a shortcut I made in Windows 7. I would like it on the start menu though if possible. I have tried "repairing" the Xara installation but that didn't help. Any answers please?

    How can you manually add a programme/App to the start menu?

    Does it give you an option when you right click to the taskbar ? Also, when you right click on the program is it with the exe extension ?

    The only options when you right click the icon on the taskbar is to either run the programme or remove it from the taskbar. I have extensions showing on my computer so I am certain I am using the exe. I have even tried dragging it to the Start menu but there is a "no entry" sign when I try. The odd thing is that there is a "Pin to Start" when you right click the exe but it doesn't seem to do anything.

    Have you try with the developer of the software with their support forum ? They would seem your best bet
