    No "All Apps" in Start Menu after Anniversary Update!


    So I just updated to the latest Windows Update upon a prompt. (Automatically in other words.) This added the Anniversary Update as well, which changed the Start Menu somewhat. There is one problem though, it doesn't work as intended. I was under the impression that "All Apps" would be displayed at the left by default now, instead of being hidden behind a button. The problem is;

    The "All Apps" section is completely mission. (Screenshot)

    Any idea what happened, and more importantly how to fix it?

    Sometimes problems like these are seen for just one account. Try creating another account. Do you see the normal 'All Apps' if you sign in to that one?

    Yes, that seems to be the issue. Any way I can fix it without having to make a new main account?

    There are some suggestions here, but before you start make sure you have at least one other working administrator account you can use - just in case you make things worse, not better!

    Good luck.

    PS: the link to MS's W7 help article referred to by that solution doesn't work for me, I just get a generic 'Windows 10' help page. Either MS have removed it, or MS's webserver redirects me away because it sees I'm on W10. Either way, you can still read it on the Wayback Machine.

    That is the new design. You cannot change it.

    @cereberus I don't think you looked closely at the screenshot. Yes, it's the new design with the Power icons et. al. at the left edge. To the right of them are the 'Recently added' and 'Most used' lists - and nothing else. There's a big empty space where the list of 'All apps' should be.

    We've already established in post #3 that a new account sees a complete Start menu, so the question is now: is there any way to fix the original account's profile, or does Crovus have to make a new main account and move all the user files and setting over to it? That's where I have run out of ideas, do you have any?

    Yeah - sorry - did not look that closely. In thse cases, a repair upgrade is usually best option (see tutorials).
