    Sevnalive, do you have my problem or Bightagen87's problem? If you have exactly my problem, this will work.

    Download the missing shortcuts here:
    Desktop.zip
    I have packed them in a zipfile named desktop.zip.
    Extract them to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Good luck!

    It didn't help. I ended up having to completely reinstall Windows 8 and it works now.

    Hey, I found out how to easily fix this:

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8


    1. Go to Desktop--> C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe. Open Command Prompt.Important: You must run Command Prompt as an administrator in Windows 7 and Windows Vista to use System File Checker.
    2. Once Command Prompt is open, type the following command and then press Enter : sfc /scannow
    Note: There's a space between sfc and /scannow.
    3.System File Checker will now verify the integrity of every protected operating system file on your computer. Wait 15-20 minutes until it's all done.
    4. Restart your computer if sfc /scannow did actually repair any files.
    Note: System File Checker may or may not prompt you to restart but even if it doesn't, you should restart anyway
    5. Repeat whatever process caused your original problem to see if sfc /scannow corrected the issue.
    6. I figured out this last night, by myself, and worked like a charm. Now i can use PC Setting Metro Style.
    7. Njoy! Share is love!

    It Was CCleaner, it has a feature to clean missing shortcuts in the start menu.

    Well that's strange because I don't have any registry cleaning programs installed and I've had this problem since the get go!

    Ran system file check with command sfc /scannow and it made no difference.

    Anyone got any other ideas?

    I wouldn't advise using CCleaner on a beta operating system. It's asking for trouble, sometimes even on an established operating system.
