    Don't forget that there's desktop still, also taskbar and taskabar menus where shortcuts could be placed. Start menu is not only place.

    Oh yeah those. Limited taskbar space, not everyone has multiple monitors and bars, thank god for multiple desktops for running programs. However, people like myself, keep their workspace on the desktop, not the actually launching of something. I have a full desktop, I need my start menu. Before you ask, yes my taskbar is full.

    Point is, regardless of "other" solutions, this shouldn't be an issue needing a solution. So far everyone has said the same thing, do this instead. That shouldn't even be a solution. That's a work around and doesn't fix the issue, which is people like myself want that menu how we want it.

    Most people don't run into that problem, I divide start places between multiple places so even with large number of installed programs I wouldn't know abut that problem if not for that article.

    I like nothing on my desktop but everything available from my desktop toolbar from a single click to get to any item on the menu, then another to access it:

    I keep reading most people don't run into that problem, yet I'm seeing 100,000's of non-repeat posts across the internet....

    That's actually what my taskbar looks like. 3 rows, all full, shortened names, about 50-100 shortcuts per, and separate shortcuts via startmenu. Desktop is full of work content.

    My wife doesn't game or anything like I do, and shes got a full start menu, desktop, taskbar, shes the "normal" user and it's affecting her as well. I think folks need to re-think how they approach looking at this problem. It's not about what you can do to avoid 512, it's about what you can do with your operating system.

    Would this also explain why I can't pin some apps to the start menu as well. By my count, I have 620. Well over the 512 limit. Explains why some folders do not show up. EA's Origin won't pin to the start menu so I wonder if this also had something to do with it.

    many people miss the point.
    there does NOT HAVE to be 512 apps installed.
    ONE APP may contain 4 or 5 listings

    Example
    Paragon Disk manager
    Paragon Recovery Build
    Paragon UNINSTALL

    THAT is just from one program
    THAT is why many people run into this issue

    It DOES NEED a fix.
    thanks

    Correct, anything that is not searchable in the start menu cannot be pinned. The start menu treats it as if it doesn't exist.
