Startup folder is still missing from Start Menu but I think we should leave it at that. It's no big deal and I can get at 'startup' thru 'msconfig'
I only have 3 items starting.
So, thanks Brink - let's close this one.
I think we may almost be there if you would like to try one more thing. In a elevated command prompt, copy and paste the command below and press Enter. You may need to log off and log on afterwards for it to be applied and return (unhide) the Startup folder to the Start Menu

attrib -h "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" /s /d
