    Uncustomizable Start Menu - No resize or pin option


    Hi, I recently noticed that my start menu cannot be customized and programs cannot be pinned/unpinned or resized. When I attempt to right click anywhere not selecting a program nothing happens, and when I right click a program it simply highlights the program and gives it a check mark saying it is selected.
    How do I fix this and make it so that I can resize and pin/unpin programs?
    Screenshot attached for a more clear representation of the problem.

    Do you have newest updates installed ?. With them tiles can be customized by Right clicking on them to get their menu.

    I have found the cause. It was due to the installation of UxStyles, Hopefully there will be a bug fix for said program
