I have to wonder, what they were thinking when they removed the start menu from Server 2012. How many people do we have, can I have a show of hands… Can you ever find anything in the that mess of a “start” menu?
Anyways what I have found was after you install SQL or anything really from an [ini] install it will not put the icons on your start menu. Has anyone found a fix other then searching for each item and pinning it to your start menu.
