windows 10 All apps List not showing any apps

Q: windows 10 All apps List not showing any apps

I was using Windows 10 build 10316 normally until I use the Razer Game Booster.
After that, All Applications List in the start menu no longer shows any application...

I uninstalled the program but the problem persists.

Now, I update to build 10328 and nothing changes!

Any help?

P.S. Sorry my bad english.

Preferred Solution: windows 10 All apps List not showing any apps

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok, so basically i downloaded Netflix to my laptop. Then I went to put a shortcut on my desktop but it wasn't under "All Apps" I went to go uninstall it but I couldn't since it wasn't in the list. It is accessible if i go into the windows store and open it from there. But other than that it doesnt show up when i search for it and it isnt in programs and features. I dont think the problem is specifically with netflix.

Hello all,

I am new here, although I did come here quite a few times and many times found the solution :-)

My problem is (I am on 1511) that some icons of removed (by powershell) apps reapeared, and there seem to be no way to get rid of them. Nothing I have found had worked (like going to start menu folder and deleting the shorcuts).

Namely it's MicrosoftWindowsAlarms, MicrosoftZuneMusic, MicrosoftWindowsPhotos, and in Apps the name looks like this: @{Microsoft.WindowsAlarms_10.1607.1991.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsAlarms-Resources-AppName-Text}

Moreover, few days ago some "new" apps have materialized - that was a shock........no update, nothing, out of blue I had about 10 unwanted apps in my all apps...............crazy.

Any thoughts?

P.S. Normally I deffer updates by turning the service off and/or metered connection. Now I have left it on by mistake...........still should not install against my will some unwanted apps..........and as I said, no update.....

A:Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

Those left-over icons may be a result of deleting programs instead of using Control Panel, Programs and Features to uninstall the programs. When a program is installed the install routine puts the program files in either C:\Program Files [32-bit] or C:\Program Files for 64-bit or C:\Program Files (x86) for 32-bit depending upon which version of the OS is in use. It will also create the icons, write support files to C:\Windows or other Folders and create Registry entries so Windows knows how to run the program. The uninstall routine is supposed to get rid of everything associated, don't know if PowerShell can do it as cleanly.

Hi everyone,

I recently downloaded the google app from the windows store. I would like to pin it to start, but strangely it doesn't show up in the all apps menu. The only way that I have found to open it is by searching for it in the store and opening it from there. When I do open it from the store, it doesn't show up in my task bar. Also when I open it, it doesn't show when I swipe from the left edge on my surface pro 4. I am also unable to uninstall and reinstall since the I cant do so from the windows store and I am unable to find the app anywhere else.

Am I missing something or does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

Hi,

I am using the SDLC Threat Modelling tool 2016 by Microsoft on a Windows 10 virtual Box 32-bit.

When I am trying to generate a final report, it discards all the different risk ratings for each threat, and instead of having the respective high, medium, low levels next to each threat, it produces a html report putting only high next to each

then I run the command line to enter oobe mode generalize. Everything is ok, I continue my install. Then I create new user local account. And when windows starts, I have my custom desktop but default apps are removed (Microsoft Edge replace Chrome, Pdf files are read with Edge, etc.)



I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

Export or Import Default Application Associations

Configure, export, import App File Associations in Windows 8.1

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

Add a Custom Script to Windows Setup
You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

It's been couple of days since I upgraded my system to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything is working fine except this nasty error. If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail. And on the start menu everything looks fine.

Hello!

I use two hard drives, one that has the OS and the other that holds my data.

However, for some reason, my Data folder on my D drive never shows up in Windows 8 apps, so I can never open anything in them unless it does it from the Desktop file explorer. Major inconvenience!

I've attached a screenshot so you can see the D drive as shown in File Explorer and all Windows 8 apps.

I have other apps with the same issue but RoboForm is the worst Is there How can I group the list in the Apps list? a way to group these icons so that I only have RoboForm icon There are also other icons on the list that I would like to delete such as the quot Register Device quot that came with my new Dell laptop It was registered now I don't need want to be reminded to do that again Hopefully this makes sense to readers it is very frustrating to me Thanks Ron

A:How can I group the list in the Apps list?

Hello Ron,

If you like, you can sort the Apps screen by name, date installed, most used, or category. Name or category may be best for what you are wanting.

Afterwards, you can also add or remove items from your Apps screen.

Newly installed apps. ot appearing in program menu unable to pin apps to start menu.

This happened to me previously and I could find no solution....I eventually created a new admin profile, where newly installed apps appeared in the program menu and I could pin apps tomthe start menu feom a desktopmshortxut etc.

I copied over my video docs pictures and music folders to the new profile. Now a few months later the same thing is happening again. I have created a new admin profile and it all,works fine there. I have searched on the internet and others have the same issue, but of course anything you search for always finds someone else with the same issue...

Hopefully someone can help me with this very annoying problem

A:Newly installed apps. ot appearing in program menu unable to pin apps

UPDATE
actually resolved the issue....I turned on windows update and did a massive update, the start menu looks a little different, maybe a different font, pinned items can only be mace smaller or bigger, used to be an option for long ( didnt use this anyway ) but new apps now showing and pin to start menu works.....so MS fixed it, there is some advantage to updating, have backed up with true image and turned off updating, will back up again before updating next time......the update didnt like GPU-Z and temoved it plus a few other apps and turned defender back on i think.......shutup-10 sorted all this out.....

Ok, so literally nothing was working - I did a "Repair Install" using my windows 7 cd. It took 2 hours, but when it finished up all of my networking was working So, for those of you who are having similar issues, as a last resort I'd give that a shot. Definitely read a few articles about what is required to successfully perform a Repair Install, as you don't want anything going wrong during that process.

I have a Surface pro 3 that a user bought and each app has a little X in the corner and I'm unable to open any app. Now there are 2 accounts on this Surface 1 is the default Administrator account the other is a admin account labeled "IT". All apps work under IT but not Administrator. 
 
Now this is while the tablet is off the domain. Soon as we put it on their domain and they login with a domain admin account the apps are unable to open including the Windows App store.
 
I'm not sure what to do at this point. Any tips would be appreciated.

I have the exact problem. It seems as though any accounts except the initial local account can access the apps w/o a problem. I created another local account after the problem started and same X on the apps.  It started on SEVERAL Surfaces 3 on April 9.
 
After a recycle to factory defaults, the initial local account created before any updates works fine. Domain accounts logging on the Surface 3 before any Windows updates work fine.
 
I installed all the latest updates which is taking forever to see if it will affect new/existing domain accounts. IT DID!!!
 
Any new account local or domain after updates now has an X...

A:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

See the screenshot below for selection you have to make for not to convert your local account to a Microsoft Account:

Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

Screenshot from tutorial Skype App - Use with Local Account in Windows 8.

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

A:Unable to add to All apps list in Start Menu

Hi, a quick test seems to show the same. The representation of traditional start menu items and structures in Win 10's start menu is (in my experience) garbage. And not just since the November upgrade. Sorry to have to say that, but it flattens all the subfolders inherited from a 'normal' menu used in Win 7 and 8, loses the sub-folders, including those created by each program's installation, leading to things like

Help
Help
Help
...

where each 'Help' is from a different program.

If you want a meaningful start menu without these quirks and oddities, try e.g. Classic Shell.

I recently built a system based on a MSI Z68-GD80 mobo + i7-2600k. Comes with Virtu which is supposed to automatically switch from Intel gfx to discrete gfx card when a game is fired up - has a white list of approved games and the ability to add your own game to the list.

Although I am not a gamer, I tried adding the exe for Cinema 4D to the list, but it didn't activate the Virtu process when I opened C4D.

So I was wondering - has any forum members sucessfully added any graphics apps to the Virtu list, or is it really only for 3D games and just gets triggered by DirectX etc.

BTW I would like to use both on-die and discrete gfx because my Black Gold HDTV card works great with Intel gfx, but pixelates with the HD5770 card.

A:Lucidlogix Virtu - adding apps to list

I seemed to have solved my Lucid Virtu problem.

Since C4D runs OK on my HD 5770 card, but Black Gold HDTV didn't, I decided to ditch Virtu, stick with the discrete card and sort the pixelation TV issue.

The AMD gfx card drivers were only 1 month old, but a newer version was available. I uninstalled prev drivers and installed the new version but no improvement.

I was poking around with HW Info64 and noticed my gfx card was running at x8 not x16 presumably due to the BG3620 being in slot #2. I moved the HDTV card to slot #3 (which let the HD 5770 gfx card run at x16), rescanned Media Center and now I have HDTV with no pixelation.

Unfortunately you cannot. Even though you have deleted these apps on your device, they will still appear with the 'iCloud download' button on your Purchased page. Apple made it that way for easy retrieval of those apps you may have accidentally deleted or those apps you just want to re-download.It's actually convenient to have all of them on one page.

What i mean is when i move the mouse cursor over an app window in taskbar if it's a game in the passed i saw the game running/playing in the small window of the app or if it's a program. Now i need to click on it and enter to it to see what is going on with it.

Now the problem is only with battlefield bad company 2 when the game is running in the background instead clicking on it's icon to enter it and see what is going i want that when i move the mouse cursor over it it should show me in the small window the game. But instead i see only white small window.

One final hack/adjustment and I will be at peace.
So far no-one has come up with a way to remove the stupid letters from the start menu apps list... have they?

Please do NOT suggest third part apps.
I value the right click menu features on the Start button and all the third party Start Menu apps screw with this.
I don't want another program, I just want the stupid clumsy letters gone!

Any creative geniuses out there?
I'm not the only one who wants this, surely!

And it doesn't even work...
Is the name of the program used to determine where the app goes or the name of the company that makes the program.. or even whether it's free or not!
(See image F for Free!)
Useless and pathetic Microsoft!

A:Kill the letters! (Start menu apps list.)

All apps in Start menu - Open and Use in Windows 10

There is no way to remove the letters.
They are a carry over from 8.
The Windows 10 menu is an updated desktop version of the metro UI in 8.

It is designed to reduce or eliminate scrolling.
Clicking a letter takes one to an install title.
It is up to the developer to generate a proper name.
The menu can only work with what it is given.

Pretty much as title except it works in 32 bit but not in 64 bit windows 8.1 update fresh install. Have checked the apps notification switches in PC settings and they are all on. The one I miss is the email notification telling me I have mail which appears to be enabled but test messages from gmail dont trigger notifcations in right hand top side of desktop.

One notification that does work is when I insert a USB it asks what to do with removable devices but thats the only notification I get. Any fixes?

A:Notifications not showing from Apps in right hand corner

Found the answer. Particularly for Metro Mail, notifications in the accounts section of mail was set to notify from favorites! I have no favorites yet so I have set it to all mail and now desktop notifications for mail show. I dont remember that setting in the 32 bit flavour but that was upgraded from windows 8. The 64 bit was a fresh install!

Hi, My name is Roy, ive searched all the other forum threads in this topic and i couldn't find what i was looking for.

Now, my problem is that my Windows 8 apps wont update and i cant install new apps. ive had this problem before, but i forgot how to solve it. I remember it had something to do with a folder not being in the C:/windows folder. I also remember it began with a "A" (Appinstaller?).

i was wondering if anyone who CAN install their apps and update them could look into their C:/Windows folder and write down a list of folders that appear starting with the letter "A".

Thanks in advanced!

A:Updates to Window 8 Apps and Installation of Apps

Hello Roy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Usually when you have issues with installing or updated apps from the Store, you would need to clear the Store cache to fix it.

If that doesn't help, then double check through the troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below to see if one may be the issue.

I don't believe you can do that. The apps are being organized in alphabetical order and I don't think you can take some of them out and put into a folder.

Hi! Welcome to SevenForums!

Have you tried locking the taskbar? Try it.

If that doesn't work, right click the taskbar and click properties. [See Screenshot Called Properties]

Then under Notification Area click Customize. [See Screenshot called Customize]

Then tick the box at the bottom and click apply. [See Screenshot called Notification Area.]

Try that and report back!

Trying to clear out the All Apps list on the start menu. Most apps I have uninstalled and utility folders deleted. The 3 things left on there that I would still like to remove are Cortana, Microsoft Edge, and Settings. I do not want to uninstall Cortana or Microsoft Edge. I simply do not want those three things to appear in the list. i.e. I deleted the Administrative Tools folder from programdata/microsoft/windows/startmenu which stops the shortcuts from appearing in the list but I still have access to all the things within.

I know its small but its important. On a side note I could have sworn i read somewhere that microsoft was going to be updating their upgrade system so you no longer had to do an in place upgrade before you could do a clean install. Does anybody know anything about that or is that not a thing. I do not seem to be able to find the original article I was reading and may have misread.



Bit of a late reply here, but the issue is still relevant so I thought I would reply.

As yet there still seems to be no solution to this problem. Microsoft have bypassed the normal folders that list apps in the start menu so that some apps can't be removed from the list. This includes Edge, Cortana and the more recent Connect. As far as I am aware there is no folder, so there must be a registry thing going on here. I will continue to look in to the problem and will get back if I ever find a solution.

Not sure if this is a Windows 7 issue or and Itunes one, but would appreaciate any help/advice

See post here . re sync isses between Itunes and Ipad2 after an upgrade to Windows 7

Many thanks

A:Itunes not showing apps -afraid now to sync to Ipad2

ISSUE NOW RESOLVED.

I tested this out on my ipod first, and it worked, so I did it on my ipad, and it worked as well

To recap, the isue os that :the device has the apps and layout you want
iTunes has teh app, but an older layout
you are therfore afraid to sync
you want the ync function to work again, like it used to, and leave you with the setup you now have on the device
Process does not take too long at all -- and its much faster that trying to rebuild the layout manually all over again.

Here's what I did. I suggest you read this through once before trying it.

0) Do NOT connect the device
1) Start iTunes. Go to Edit, Preferences, Device backups
2) Select Prevent ipods from syncing automatically
3) Delete the backups listed
4) Connect the device
5) Right click on the device in the left pane, and select Backup
----------------
You now have a good backup, good device, still bad iTunes
----------------
6) Under Sync, it may or may not be greyed out with your desired layout showing.
7) Checkmark the Sync Apps check box
8) Peform the dreaded sync ( this will temporarily leave you with the bad layout on your device . Have faith) .It may ask to transfer purchases back to iTunes, say Yes.It may tell you that your device is activated on another machine and do your really want ot erase thr apps on the device
and sync to iTunes - say Yes. Dont worry - this is temporary.
9) At this stage, the bad layout is now synced to your device (keep praying but it will be ok)
----------------
You now have a good backup, bad device, bad iTunes
----------------
10) Go to Edit, Preferences, Device backups
11) Delete the most recent backup, keep the old backup (the good one)
12) Right click on the device in the left pane, and select Restore from Backup. Let it completely do its thing.
13) Your device will likely NOT be listed any more, but if you look at your device, it has the good setup (because of the restore)
14) Disconnect your device and close iTunes (it may close automatically when you disconnect
----------------
You now have a good backup, good device, still bad iTunes
----------------
15) Start up Itunes
16) Connect you device
17) Under Sync, it may or may not be greyed out with your sesired layot
showing. Checkmark the Sync Apps check box. It will warn you all your
exisitng apps will be repalced. Your 'wrong' layout will again appear.
18) Do another restore
19) Under Sync apps , it will look wrong, but dont worry - close iTunes
----------------
20) Restart iTunes - EVERYTHING SHOULD BE BACK TO NORMAL NOW
----------------
You now have a good backup, good device, good iTunes !!!
----------------
At this point, create another backup - Right click on the device in the left pane, and select Backup

I recently installed the Windows 10 upgrade on my laptop, but the action center and PC notification features are not working for me. I am receiving no notification banners for the twitter, facebook, alarm, etc apps. The notification options within the apps themselves are turned on, but some are not showing up in the settings menu. (See attached images)

I tried running an app registry key reset found here, but that did not solve the problem, and tried running "sfc /scannow" in the command prompt to check for corrupted files but came up with no errors.

The apps that are missing in the system settings notification menu are twitter, alarms, duolingo, facebook, and pretty much everything else except the mail and calendar apps. How do I add them, or at least get my computer to recognize that they exist?

It's possible you installed the latest version of Java but somewhere on your PC there's an older uninstalled version still active.
 
Java actually has a tool for specifically for this purpose available here: http://java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderversions.xml

Does anybody know of a solution to this problem:
A new roaming user logs in, they only see Desktop / Onedrive and Store tile on their start screen.
If they open the store they can install a default app like MSN news or any other app and the app will open. However when the close the app, they cannot find the app anywhere in the start menu even if they search for it. They also are unable to pin anything
to their start screen, it gives the option to pin but nothing happens.

Tried resetting their profile and still the same thing happens. Other users who log in see the default Apps like News, sport etc.
Not a major problem but just strange and very random.

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

I save almost everything into Dropbox. When I try and attach an file to an email through the Chrome app (non-desktop version), the Dropbox app (not the programme on running on my desktop) will not allow me to select the files to add. I think this is because the Dropbox app is essentially the same as the website and I would have to download the item first. This wouldn't be a huge problem if I was able to get at the document some other way but I get stuck!

I can attach the document if I switch back to the Chrome desktop app, but I am not sure how I managed to make this change the first time!

Does anyone have any ideas about how to switch from between app modes? Thanks in advance

Restart the computer to complete this action.


BUT there is no reset.txt created in the directory I run it from (c:\temp), even if I sepecify a path for the log file... This seems curious.

The virus scan is still running (clean so far).

Hello to everyone,

I have very annoying problem with Windows 8. The problem is in metro control panel "PC Settings".
I don't know what is the reason for removing all apps control in the Notifications menu.

I had this problem so many times and the only fix for this that I know - is to create a new microsoft account or to do clean install (which I don't like to try those suggestions anymore).

Any other solution mates?

A:"Show notifications from these apps" error, no apps listed

Hello, minomk. Welcome to Windows EightForums.

Not sure why you have to create a new microsoft account or to do clean install. Apps can notify a user when new content arrives. Not quite sure what your problem is. Do you want to shut notifications off for all your apps? Perhaps particular apps?

Push "Show notifications from these apps" to pick on/off individually.

I hope that helps you.

Random apps are not showing up in the "All Apps" section of the Start Menu after installing a clean version of Windows 10 (not an upgrade), and re-installing all my favorite software, In other words, finding a launcher to countless programs now means visiting "C:/Program Files/WhateverRandomSoftware/launcher.exe." Well, that;'s no fun.

Is there any better way to do this. Anyone know of a fix or have others experienced this problem?

Thanks!

I do not want to show a list of recently installed/added apps or any programs from the "new" Start Menu. I prefer to not have any list of apps or programs at all shown. Is there a way to turn this off?

I have Win 8 Retail Final Professional English x64

I have installed and uninstalled many apps from the Windows Store. But I have realized that, after having uninstalled some of them I didn?t like, if I go to "Your Applications" and select "Applications not installed in this computer" I still see them like in a kind of "History" (like in the Internet browsers)

Hi,
I just got the anniversary update and my start went back to default. By that I mean when you click start you see a list off folders, apps, that's on the left side on the right are the icons like before. Anyhow before the update I went to the registry and changed it so that the list would be gone and I could only see the power button and settings, but after the update this doesn't work anymore. I googled everywhere and I couldn't find the answer so I'm here.
How do you remove the so called "All apps list" from the start menu ?

Thank you for this great set of tutorials on the app store. I have one which puzzles me. Forgive me if this is already posted elsewhere but I am new and have not browsed a lot yet.

If you try out a lot of apps from the store and uninstall them you end up with a long list of apps which it says you purchased and there seems to be no way to clear this list of unwanted entries...any solution to this?, if so it might be great to have this as a tutorial in this suit.
Thank a lot

A:Clear "Your Apps" list in Store

I asked the same question about how to clear out the "Your Apps" entries and didn't get any hits. My thread is long gone off of the bottom of the page. I'll tag along with you in this one though and see if anybody has an answer. Misery loves company.

Hi I like to make a thread here for people to discuss Apps To be honest i am not really a big fan of them as Apps make - of do What whole? Apps a you but i do think they have their place on a mobile phone or tablet and not on a powerful computer The reason i am not a big fan of Apps is because they are really just cut down versions of programs you have on a computer On a computer Why would you use an App instead of using the Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole? full programe or the website you can go to I know that Apps are designed to make life easier but i have felt recently as Apps seem to be everywhere these days and are not going away That they seem to have made people very lazy in computing Some people cant even be bothered to switch on their pc and this is not a good thing Woman are a very good example here as Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole? they love their phones and are always using the App version of a programe instead of using a computer and it kinda gets me cross if like me a computer user is using the same programe as they are and they cant access all the features you can It is really very frustrating What do you people think Do i have a point I like Win and some of the apps are useful but i always seem to goto my desktop and never the Metro to do my computing and to be honest felt the apps are best suited to a tablet as they are are a touch screen Andy

A:Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole?

fine on a phone or tablet. No point on a desktop or laptop. Too simplistic and feature lacking.
