    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.

    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.

    If you end up doing an in-place upgrade
    You will find the link to it in my signature
    Saves hunting through Tutorials for it
