Microsoft Acknowledges Missing Apps Bug in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rollout started on October 17, and just like expected, the first batch of users who received it came across several bugs, including one that hides their apps in the Start menu.
In most of the cases, apps can be launched from the Windows Store, where they are listed as installed, but otherwise, it’s more difficult to find them on the system as they no longer show up in the Start menu.
Microsoft has finally acknowledged the bug and explained that it’s “investigating reports of missing apps after installing the Fall Creators Update,” while also providing a few troubleshooting steps to restore the apps. It’s important to note that the company hasn’t promised a fix, though the bug is likely to be resolved with a cumulative update shipping sometime in the coming months.
