    I have setup my start menu tiles and organized them to my liking, is there a way to save this now in case I format so I can restore it back?
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Sorry no you can't because Microsoft doesn't synchronize start menu with windows 10.

    Code:
    Export-StartLayout
    
    Import-StartLayout

    I think Import-StartLayout is applicable only in a mounted Windows Image and not for online Windows installation...

    Haven't tested it though...

    Of course the import for offline only
    BTW, Win10 no longer have start layout as .bin file, export will always generate .xml
