    Start Screen Settings Not Retained after Update 1

    I have a particular layout for my Start Screen but after update 1 my Start Screen layout reverted to some old layout and dumped all my pinned stuff not in old layout at the end of screen towards the right.

    I spent like 30 to 40 minutes to get to some what to my layout but not perfect. I sort of forgot the layout but still kind of mad because I was so used to original layout. I kind of now feel the pain of people who miss the Start Menu. When you have your setup and then it gets moved is annoying.

    I wonder if there is a way to revert or restore my start setting? Is there like a history of layout options? I really love the File History but I don't think it has PC settings saved.

    Update: I decided to just redo my Start Screen Layout and hope that next OS update will retain it.
