Windows 10: All apps in Start menu - Add or Remove Items in Windows 10
I suppose you could pin those apps to Start to use for now until you can get them to show in All Apps.
>>>> no that is part of the problem. Pin to Start has no effect on anything for me UNLESS it is a link already in the All Apps list
In that case, you might consider doing a repair install to fix this and other issues without losing anything.
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
I tried rebooting, tried a registry cleaning. rebooted. no help. then today did a mammoth [45 minutes] win 10 upgrade. Now the All Apps is working like it should. go figure. thanks for a ll the thoughts
Thank you. On build 10586.218. I wanted to put a shortcut to scanpst on the start menu for a particular user. Had already achieved exactly what I wanted for Administrator, that is, a shortcut and no tile. However when I tried to do it for a particular user I must have made a mistake and I finished up with a tile & no shortcut. Then deleting the tile and trying again was no better (all as others report).
I then used a simplified variation of Anleck’s method. Signed on as Administrator, I simply renamed the particular User's TileDataLayer folder (ie did not register a temp user) then restarted. W10 recreated TileDataLayer folder for that user, and the shortcut was in the menu, without a tile. There were no other tiles either; I had deleted all other tiles deliberately previously.
Same problem here...
Same problem here as some others are experiencing.
I have tried adding shortcuts to programs to either of these locations:
But they won't show up under "all apps".
Is there a solution to this yet? I assumed not, since I didn't find anything new in the start post of this topic.
I am also confirming this does not work. Following the instructions creates a tile and does not add anything to the "All apps" section of the start menu.
Which option are you using, and what shortcut are you trying to add?
I just tested OPTION THREE adding an "Instant Restore Point" shortcut (.lnk) file and folder, and it shows in my All apps.
I tried all the options listed, appdata and programdata had the same results.
I am trying to add a desktop shortcut for 3DMark so it is grouped in all apps with 3DMark 11 & Vantage. It only shows up as a tile on the right.
Go ahead and post screenshots showing the shortcut in "All apps"/Start menu and the Start menu Programs folder to see if anything may stand out.
If a shortcut of the application already exists in "All apps", then adding another shortcut of the app will not work.

The situation is I can't add any item to the "start list', which is the list on the left of the start icons.

Why is there a limit of items that can be pinned to the start menu?
In previous builds there was a higher limit or no limit. If the item listed was off-screen, you just scrolled whether or not the start menu was full size or not. In...
Folks, I do not show any of the flyouts (the right caret >) on my start menu items like file explorer or Control Panel. I am sure I turned them off somewhere along the way but not sure where.
