    Cortana missing Live Tile and from All Apps section

    I have had this issue for a while and was wondering if anyone knows of a way to restore these. The Cortana Live Tile and Cortana entry in the All Apps section are both missing so I cannot re-add the Live Tile back. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Hi, try Windows key + S. Does Cortana appear and is it functional?

    If not, check Location is on in the Action centre and the geolocation service is running.

    (See post #4)

    To restore the tile and shortcut you may need to do an in-place upgrade repair install (see the Tutorial section where you can find instructions).

    - do not try Powershell commands- the typical ones to repair apps haven't worked since build 10540.
