Windows 10 Individually modified Start Menu copy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just recently found out how to copy a Start Menu template so each new user who signs onto Windows 10 will get a specific Start Menu with preferred tiles.

    My question is, once a user modifies his/her template and adds/removes Apps from their Start Menus, what file is being modified at that point? The LayoutModification.xml file is what gives each user a configured Start Menu. Now let's say I need to rebuild their machine using USMT to copy/restore their data. The moment I clone a new machine, it sets them right back to a generic Start Menu again, so when they sign on, the apps they had added before are gone.

    Is there a file which gets modified when each user changes their own Start Menu so I can include that in the USMT, to restore their menu to what that user specifically set up?
