Hi.
Today I did the update KB5014668. As has been the case with other updates in the past, the Winx menu has turned to the defaults.
But now i have a problem : I can only remove shortcuts not add.
In the past the problem was solved when I put the new shortcuts on the relevant paths :
1) C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX
2) C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX
Now, I add them and they just don't show up.
I have tried in three ways to solve the problem without success:
1) WinX menu editor
2) Using hashlnk.exe
3) Copy/paste the shortcuts. This way has always worked until now.
Note : I havent problem to restore at default state , via sfc and dism commans or via copy/paste the default folders.
It seems a little strange to me because when I copy/paste the default shortcuts are added, and when I do mine they are not added.
Any suggestions to add non default shortcuts ?
While i am the only user at my system as admin its OK to delete all the folders at C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX ?
(Windows 11 pro x64 21H2 , 22000.778)
Thanks. :)

Update : I deleted as a test , all the contents of C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX folder.
Nothing change. So i guess only C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX folder matters.
