    If other solutions don't work, you may need to do system restore.

    if you Uninstalled, they are gone.
    If you Unpinned, you can just use the search view to pin them back on the startscreen (Windows key + i (not L))

    Thank you all for your replies.. Well it's about Internet explorer and a shortcut to go to desktop.. I didn't remove desktop and now it's not there and I can't get it back also by searching for it.. About IE, it's open IE in normal desktop way and all addons are disabled while opening it.. though if some app open IE, it opens the one is Metro but when I click on it, it opens the default in my desktop.. Any suggestions..?? Thnx.

    As for me...an application indeed opens IE in Immersive window but at my Laptop everything is works fine until I push this button for view IE desktop... Picture1w.png I have also an ideea...perhaps you go with mouse in the left side of screen ahd click there...so the OS revert back to desktop wiew...An other ideea,run sfc/scannow ,restart and then run automatic maintenance...manually....:pthat would resolve the things...

    Nobody asked how to install WDP, end of story. What you currently do is spamming every thread with topic irrelevant posts (yes thats called straight spamming/counter pushing), won't hurt to post topic relevant stuff..

    The tiles are located somewhere in either %programdata%, %appdata%, or %localappdata%. I came across them while browsing around. Not sure if just replacing them back will work or not. Perhaps someone could look more into it as I'm busy at the moment.
