    Sorry, I meant only in the actual "Programs" folder at either location below, and not in any subfolders in Programs.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    all links are in the
    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    folder only and not any subfolders thereof. Even weirder is that the All Apps shows a folder that does not exist ... i did a search for file and there is none. the program has been uninstalled.

    where does win 10 get this stuff then?

    Sounds like the program is not very good at cleaning up after itself. Are you able to manually remove the folder?

    Are you able to manually remove the folder? you ask .... there is no folder to remove. did a search. not there! searched thru registry for any key that mentioned the app or the folder. not found. All Apps should have regenerated itself without the folder or the app that was held there. but i digress. Where is the cache or what is the trigger that gets the All Apps list to regenerate ? does any one know this stuff? i wasted an hour with a microsoft idiot who knew nothing.

    To whom are you referring to as an idiot?

    What is the folder for? Please post some screenshots to see if may reveal anything,

    Get-StartApps is a combination of everything in All apps and tiles (pinned) on Start.

    this is the ProgramData ... Start Menu, the Users ...Start Menu, and the part of the All Apps list for B and C;
    Focus on: Clockwork Mod which shows in the AllApps but not elsewhere; also note: No entry in All Apps for Corel PaintShop or Cloudmark or APC UPS STatus. see below for Get-StartApps

    [n.b. the idiot i was referring to was at Microsoft help desk ... totally clueless but would not admit it]

    Below is the full listing from Get-StartApps. Notice entries for Corel, Cloudmark and APC.

    Yeah, some of the outsourced support Microsoft uses seem to only follow a flowchart.

    Do you have Corel, Cloudmark and APC pinned to Start? I see their shortcuts in your %ProgramData%\...\Programs folder. Do the shortcuts work if you click on them there? If not, then delete them and create new shortcuts as a test to see if they show in All Apps afterwards. If not, then create the shortcuts in your %AppData%\...\Programs location to see if they show in All Apps afterwards for only your account.

    Clockwork Mod may not have registered properly when installed. It wouldn't hurt to notify the developer about this to see if he/she may be able to update it.

    >>Well, pin to start only works for items already in the All Apps list. since they dont appear i cannot pin to start.

    I see their shortcuts in your %ProgramData%\...\Programs folder. Do the shortcuts work if you click on them there?
    >> Yes. they all work there

    create the shortcuts in your %AppData%\...\Programs location to see if they show in All Apps afterwards
    >> I did and they do not.

    any other ideas to try ?

    You could "Pin to Start" items that are not in All Apps from other locations, but since they are not for you, then that's not why anyways.

    'Pin to Start' and 'Unpin from Start" items in Windows 10

    I must admit that I'm running out of ideas as well. I suppose you could pin those apps to Start to use for now until you can get them to show in All Apps.
