    Help: New Apps I install never show up on Start Screen

    Hi All,

    This is becoming INCREDIBLY Frustrating - I have been downloading Apps from the "store" and everytime I install a new one, it never shows up on the actual start screen. When I search for the app, click it and choose "Pin", it still does NOT show up on the Start screen.

    How frustrating - can't seem to find anything online that helps me resolve this. Has anyone seen this before? Is there a setting somewhere that locks what can/cant be added to the start screen?

    Some third party anti-virus programs interfere with certain apps working correctly.
