After getting the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update some of your apps are missing from Start? You're not alone — Here are a few things you can try to fix this issue.
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) is now slowly rolling out to compatible devices delivering a new set of features and enhancements, but it appears that not everyone is having a smooth upgrade experience. Alongside a number of problems already reported, some users have also been complaining about apps going missing after installing this release.

Microsoft is currently investigating the problem, but until there is a permanent solution, the company is offering a few troubleshooting tips to fix the issue on your device.
