Windows 10: All Apps doesn't appears in Start Menu

    All Apps doesn't appears in Start Menu


    Hi, my name's Pedro and I'm using Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14332.
    I have a laptop Lenovo Yoga 11s, Intel I5 3339Y, 8GB, Intel HD Graphics 4000 (last driver) and 128GB SSD card.

    In the last build (14328), after a good install and a normal work short period, the All Apps in Start Menu has disappeared. It doesn't appears in Start Menu anymore since then.
    I've installed the new build (14332) hoping that this could be solved, but that doesn't happens. I've changed the video driver but that did not work either.

    So I'm asking here if anybody has some information about this that could help me to solve it.

    Thanx in advance

    I do not understand your question.

    Since 14238, theete is no longer an "all apps" link. All Apps are just shown now.

    I'm sorry I'm not make me clear. It's not a link, it is the All Apps list that normally appears in the Start Menu.
    My problem is that All Apps list vanished from Start Menu.
    I can't run any App because I can't see them anymore. See the image captured from my screen.

    Hi, if you don't have any system restore points, you're welcome to try
    sfc /scannow
    from an elevated command prompt (it takes a while) - check the result and post back-
    but I suspect you will need to do an in-place upgrade repair install, for which you need an iso (or equivalent on disk or flash drive) of your current major build.

    Thank you Dalchina!

    I've already did sfc /scannow and as you anticipated nothing wrong has been found. Everything seems ok, but it's not!
    Do you think the next step is really in-place upgrade repair install??

    yep.. its relatively painless- I've just done it myself in fact. Quite quick with a SSD.

    You could try a new user profile if you were prepared to move to one should that work..

    This might work (Powershell, admin):
    Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}

    Otherwise:
    Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

    Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)
    chkdsk C: /F
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed.

    An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

    For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
    - all/most associations will be unchanged
    - all your programs will be left installed
    - you will lose any custom fonts
    - you will lose any customised system icons
    - you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
    - you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
    - Windows.old will be created
    - system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
    - you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)
    - inactive title bar colouring (if used) will be reset to default
    - if Qttabbar is installed, you need to re-enable it in explorer (Options, check Qttabbar)
    This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, and as updates are mostly cumulative, there will be few to do.

    Recommendation:
    Before you perform this major repair procedure, do create a disk image.

    Please consider using disk imaging regularly. It's a brilliant way to
    - preserve your system (and your sanity)
    - back up your data
    - restore your system to a previously working state in a relatively short time

    Recommended: Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper (free) + their boot disk/device + large enough external storage medium.

    Thanx Dalchina for your kind assistance. I'll first energize my courage, then I'll give it a try.
    I think I'll make a ISO from my $WINDOWS.~BT folder and then I proceed with your guidelines.

    Thank you

    I did it!
    I've create an ISO from my $WINDOWS.~BT folder and then a USB driver using Rufus. After that I follow the instructions in the Tutorial for In-Place Upgrade Repair.
    It did worked fine. Windows and all my apps came back in good shape.
    But my original problem has not been solved. I remain with no All Apps list in the Start Menu. I think the problem has to be linked with my Lenovo and my video driver (which it's actuallized ).
    Do you have any ideas!!??

    Thanx
