Windows 10: "All apps" menu not showing ANY apps installed on machine
Retired from the grind
What happens if you try another user profile or load Start10 to see if it shows "Universal Apps".
Hi, I'm a bit puzzled about your description of the update vs your comment about system restore.
The November TH2 'upgrade' to 10586 takes 2 or so hours and is based on the procedure of installing Windows, so I guess that's what you mean. Fine. But directly AFTER that upgrade there will be no restore points (because of that procedure being used), and usually system restore is found to be turned off (again!).
It would be neither possible nor expected to be able to use system restore to reverse that upgrade.

Sadly the start menu and Cortana bring with them a degree of fragility... my win 10's been stable once configured in terms of appearance and basic functionality, drivers etc. (although I make changes in installed desktop apps from time to time).
Best to use Classic Shell as the start menu (e.g.) or some replacement as above as the Win 10 start menu does NOT render a traditional start menu's hierarchal folder tree usefully.. it loses all the subfolders, so you might see
where each is from a separate program originally. For example. (Thanks, MS).
Thank you for the input! I apologize about the confusion. The update I received was on December 6th and for a couple of days things ran smoothly. On December 9th is when the start menu did not work and I was missing Microsoft Edge and the Microsoft store app. A lot of people have been doing system restores when this happened so that is what I did and when I went to go find a restore point I only had one which was for "12/6/2015" so somehow there was a restore point (which I am glad there was as it solved the issue). I apologize I don't have the update as when I did the system restore I installed a handful of updates on December 10th and things seem to be fine. I just wanted everyone to have a sense of what has happened leading up to the main problem I am having with the All Apps button.
Thank you for the advice! Just bummed it isn't working as it should, or even as it was working.

It should be working. The app's are under the hidden Common folder. Try the following. https://thomas.vanhoutte.be/miniblog...ndows-10-apps/
The only one I could find in the tutorials was just for restoring the Photo app. Brink may have a tutorial on restoring all, just that the search engines did not puck up on it.
Random apps are not showing up in the "All Apps" section of the Start Menu after installing a clean version of Windows 10 (not an upgrade), and re-installing all my favorite software, In other words, finding a launcher to countless programs now...
I apologise for posting this problem again, but seem to have exhausted options, so hoped by starting a new thread, may get some new ideas.
Installed Apps not showing in all apps menu.
resolved the same problem on my laptop, by running a script...
So you know how it's possible to move your shortcuts into folders and rename said folders on regular "desktop" apps? Is this possible with Windows Store "Metro" apps as well?
What I'd really like to do, for example, is have a folder...
I wonder if there is a way (through editing system files or registry) to change Windows 10 Start Menu "All apps" to something else like "My Programs". Also where is the icon file located in the system and how to change the default icon.
Hi, I'm having an issue and I'm wondering if anyone else has any ideas on what to do about it.
Some desktop apps are missing from the "All apps" section of the Start menu. Most programs are there, but I'd say 10-15% are missing. Apps that are...
