How to fix the missing apps bug after the Fall Creators Update

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update could make your apps disappear from the Start menu

Microsoft has published a temporary fix for the Start menu bug experienced by some users after they upgraded their PCs to the Fall Creators Update. Despite the apps are not uninstalled, and they appear as installed in the Windows Store, they are missing from the start menu. If it is the case with your PC, you can try one of the following solutions:

First solution:

Open Settings, and select Apps.

  • On the Apps & features tab, find the name of the missing app. Click the app and select Advanced options (if available).
  • If a Repair option is available, click Repair. If this option is not available, or if Repair does not resolve the issue, you may also try the Reset option, though you might lose any app data that was saved.
  • Once the repair or reset is completed, the app should again appear in the app list and can be pinned to the Start Menu.

Second Solution:

  • Open Settings, and select Apps.
  • On the Apps & features tab, find the name of the missing app. Click the app and select Uninstall.
  • Open Store and then reinstall the missing app. Once installed, the app should appear in the app list, and can be pinned to the Start Menu.

Third solution. Try it only of the first two don’t work. It’s for advanced users:

  • In Cortana, type PowerShell. In the search results, right-click Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
  • In the Powershell window type the following commands. These steps may take a few minutes to complete.
    reg delete “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TileDataModel\Migration\TileStore” /va /f
    get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
    $bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname
    get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmanifest.xml”)}
  • Once the PowerShell commands are completed, the apps should appear in the app list, and can be pinned to the Start Menu.

Keep in mind that these are only temporary fixes. Microsoft should include a permanent fix in the upcoming cumulative update for Windows 10.
