Having done a System Refresh on Windows 8 it now seems to have lost all the standard (default user?) start menu tiles, even Desktop tile is missing. Any suggestions how to get these back again.
After the System Refresh SFC was run for safety and I was quite surprised to discover that it found and corrected a fair number of items. Clearly System Refresh does not quite work properly.
We have two identically named 'Start Menu' directories, in:
At least one of these must be a symlink I guess, they are actually:
- C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
Which one is correct or should they both be there?
Edit: I feel sure that the directory
should not contain both
- 'Start Menu' real directory
- 'Start Menu' symlink - pointing to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AllUsers
but question is which is rogue and which is correct? And how have we ended up with two, could roaming profiles be involved in some way?
