    Search for control panel in apps. Then pin it.

    Oddly enough, some of my Metro apps have also disappeared including the Metro control panel and I haven't touched a thing in there.

    Weird.

    Instead of safe mode when f8 is hit a refresh type option is available. Try that. I doubt you have any info stored in there so what could it hurt. Its almost like the factory reset on a smartphone.
    May just be buggy.
