Window 8 - Lost Start Screen Tiles

Windows 8
Published on 27 Jan 2020 / In Operating Systems & Utilities

A strange thing happened. After a normal power down, when my system was rebooted, all the tiles on my Start screen dissappeared. If I try to go to ALL APPS to restore them, those are all gone too. All I see is a blue screen.

The side menus work and the apps are still there. I can go back and forth between Start and the Desktop but can't add any Tiles.

I've tried running SFC /scannow and
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth but neither fixed the problem.

I have read about a hotfix for this but when I run it, it says not meant for my system and won't proceed.

I haven't added any software or hardware to explain this and don't seem to be able to fix it.
