Trying to restore start menu default settings - Not Working
I have looked everywhere here and elsewhere...there are a lot of great tutorials and other posts...but I can only find one set of directions for my purpose and following them is NOT working.
The left hand side of my Windows 7 Premium Home 64 bit start menu is completely blank (why or how I am not sure)...I have repinned a couple of programs just to see if I could populate it again, which I can.
So far I have:
1) Control Panel - Start Up - Customize - Restore default settings - Apply - OK
This has consistently not worked.
2) ...Customize - check/uncheck options - ... store and display recently opened each checked - Apply - OK
Again, not worked.
...........restarted all times
3) I have seen a great number of interesting tutorials and posts, but nothing that captures this problem, the opposite of most queries.
I'm wondering if I have to set up a new user account? and switch settings for the accounts? i.e. account profile corrupted? (How does this even happen?)
Anyone with any other ideas how I might restore the start menu default settings besides the obvious (that should work!!) Customize option, I would be greatly appreciative.
