Yesterday, the auto update to Win 10 kicked in, and after I rebooted, I happened to notice that my Start menu was gone......replaced by 'Power', 'Settings', 'Files' and 'Account Information'. 

 

So now it looks like if I need to use something...........like Word Starter 2010 or Windows accessories, I have to type it into the search window.

 

Anyone else have that happen?

 

Is it possible to recover the Start menu, or what? I can't remember everything that was there. Most of what I had there is on the desktop or taskbar anyway, but there were some things I liked on the Start menu.

 

 

Very strange.

Ok............I found this: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/8bbefd/access-windows-accessories-tools-in-windows-10449/

 

That pretty much takes care of my question and solution. I can work with this.
