    This morning I found that my Start Screen had reverted to its factory setting. All the tiles I had deleted (Ebay, Netflix, Music, Games, and so on) were back again, and all the tiles I had added were gone -- about 60 tiles that were links to my folders and to certain programs, etc. Almost all of the links were to desktop apps or folders. I could pin them all back again, but I don't have a list of them. My desktop and my data are OK, but I need those tiles back. I've been on the phone with Microsoft, and they did a system restore from 12/26, but it didn't restore the tiles even though they were there yesterday. If I could just find a list of their names, it would be enough. Is there any folder that they might be in, or any other way to find such a list?

    Are you loggin in with the same user or did you change the user-account? Every user has it own tiles/apps installed?

    Thanks. My problem was just that I didn't have a list of all the tiles I had pinned and couldn't remember what all of them were. Since then I've looked through all the folders and I think I've found them all.

    Pinning apps which you couldn't remember are useless for you and you really didn't should pin them again (if you remember them i a year or so!!)!
