    Windows 10 Pro - what ever the latest Insider build is
       09 Jun 2017 #10

    I tried this about 4 months ago on an Insider build and it didn't work. Have you tried this on any of the latest builds (currently 16199)?

    Hello @vijer,

    It doesn't appear to be working in my build 16215 either. I'll have to do some more testing to see what is going on.

    If folks don't mind, please post if it still works for you or not along with what Windows 10 build you have installed.

    Could it be it is not working with Creative Update anymore? I tried it, but it didn*t work.
    What I also tried is:
    Deleting the folder, then only 3 items were left (Office).
    I copied over again, still only those 3 items

    Next I tried, moving those buttons around.
    Deleting the folder again.
    After another login, again, those 3 buttons where here, same arrangement.

    So it seems, it is saved somehow different.

    Not sure what I could be doing wrong, as copyiing this directory is straight forward...

    Hello Patrick,

    I was hoping it may have just been an issue in a few builds, but it appears to no longer work since build 16215.
