Start menu invalid item ms-resource:AppName/Text

Thousands of people including me have this ms-resource:AppName/Text item on the start menu since upgrading to win 10 version 1903.

I have it on one laptop and not on the other, both updated via windows update.

When you look into it more by creating a desktop shortcut to find out what it is, it mentions "Microsoft.HolographicFirstRun" in the details

Are Microsoft working on fixing this? Yes I have reported it via feedback hub as have lots of others. There are tons of posts on here and the internet about it since the end of last year yet no fix from Microsfot as yet?

People have posted scripts and workarounds but I am waiting for a proper Microsoft fix. Can someone tell me if they are working on it as it clearly has been reported numerous times so it is not like Microsoft aren't aware..

UPDATE: (still unfixed with new update)

KB4512941 does NOT fix the ms-resource:AppName/Text issue at all. Still have ms-resource:AppName/Text as do others on other threads.

Hi ukheather
Greetings! I am Vijay, an Independent Advisor. Microsoft doesn't publish a roadmap for the features / fixes. So, it is not possible to say when. Only thing, I can tell that they are definitely working on this as it has been reported by many persons.

But that isn't confirmation they are actually working on it, just that they do fix issues reported?

Hi Heather

My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

Send me the short link to the report you sent in so I can vote on it and bring it to the attention of the engineers and get an update for you on the progress for a fix.

It seems like a issue with the Start menu tile database might be broken. I saw it in mine recently, but it automatically was resolved.

Here are steps to send me the short link:

Well mine has just me voting on it as I only posted it the other day but there are so many other posts about it on there too. No idea how many votes they need before Microsoft look seeing as this has been going on months and it hasn't been fixed.
