Windows 10 Start Menu Tiles Missing After Anniversary Update

After installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update I noticed that my Start Menu Tiles no longer are displayed. Due to time I could not do a restore. I looked into my Personalization settings to see what might have changed and did not find anything for me to change. How  can I get the Tiles back onto the Start Menu?



I have tried Windows Update Troubleshooter and it still didn't solve the issue

UPDATE : for those who are encountering the similar issue, I have managed to fix it manually by pinning them to back to start menu tiles. but before doing that you need to re-register those apps.

Step 1: Press Windows Key + Q on the keyboard to bring up the Search Menu, type powershell and choose Windows PowerShell from the results. Then right-click on it and choose Run as administrator from the context menu to unlock special permissions and privileges.

Step 2: Type the following command in the administrative Windows PowerShell window, and then hit Enter key to execute the command:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"}

Step 3 :  wait the process and then restart your computer, then you can start pinning them back.

Optional step : If those steps don't work, go to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps (show hidden files). You must edit the permission on security tab until you can enter that folder. when you're done, repeat step 1 - 3 again.

I hope it can help :)
