Microsoft Restores Missing Apps as Part of November Update for Windows 10 Creators Update

When Windows 10 Creators Update rolled out and customers began installing, some found that the update “disappeared” some apps that were pinned to the Start Menu.

The cumulative update rolling out today for Windows 10 1709 (November 14, 2017—KB4048955 (OS Build 16299.64) is supposed to fix this issue. From the fixes list:

Addressed issue where application tiles are missing from the Start menu. Additionally, applications that the Store app show as installed don’t appear on the application list of the Start menu. Computers that have Internet connectivity and upgrade on or after November 14, 2017 will receive this preventative solution and avoid this issue. Machines that lack network connectivity or have already encountered this issue should follow the steps in the Microsoft Answers thread “Missing apps after installing Windows 10 Fall Creators Update”. Microsoft will release and document an additional solution in a future release.
