    Today is Christmas, MS brings me two gifts:

    1. All photos for my contacts re-appears on People App, they has been gone for months and finally comes back.

    2. All Windows 10 Metro apps disappeared from start screen and taskbar, left only Win32 programs. See attached snapshot, and all program in the app list marked "New", looks like all apps are re-installed themselves. Now my PC is exactly WIN7-like interface. I am running RS2 14986.1001

    How to bring back Win10 start screen? Merry Christmas.

    Find the apps you want to pin in that list, right-click them and select Pin to Start.

    Hi! I think you are running insider so this might not work for you. It works great on my W10 1607 build! This will show all the Apps on your PC!

    Return your gifts to MSFT, don't be greedy ;) leave Insider program and enjoy 14393 build without those presents.

    Eventually I managed to get icons for metro apps back to app list by going to Settings and do a Reset on all missing metro apps, then I can pin them to start menu or taskbar. However, I am still missing the icon for Edge browser. How to reinstall Edge?
