Windows 10 update resets start tiles

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It seems that every time windows 10 decides to automatically reset and update my PC my start tiles get restored to default. 

The first time this happened, I began recreating all the shortcuts though it saved them as (1) meaning there's still a save state of them somewhere...

 

Does anyone know how to prevent Windows from resetting my start tiles each time? And is there a way to restore my preference?

is this Windows Update related or is this related to 'Reset this PC' ?

Is he talking about cumulative updates or feature updates (they're only 2x per year)? I need more information. I asked because every time you 'refresh' windows it wipes the Start Menu.

I was mostly just being sassy for the fun of it when I replied with the picture, but if he was doing a refresh or anything else he probably wouldn't have used the word update or stated that it was automatic. I don't really know why he included the word reset but it might be because in addition to his reset-esk issue, a Windows update typically has you go through a setup process afterwards which can invoke the feeling of starting over.

 

Sounds like the issue is simply that updating Windows causes the start menu to be reset. @Subterfudge we could use some more details please

Sorry, I did mean *restart* (as in turn off and back on before windows update begins)

This occured 2 nights ago. My PC was on yesterday morning with all the programs I had running the night before closed down. The start menu tiles had restored to defult but everything else was as it was (backround, start orb, colour scheme, etc.)
