Hi.  Is Evernote listed under All Apps at the bottom of your start menu?  Try right-clicking the entry and choose 'Pin to Start Menu'

Hi It is in my all apps list but it has no icon there either, I just noticed that, I think before this last install it did have an icon in the list, and the only choice was unpin so I unpinned and pinned again and still see no icon in either place. Is there a registry entry that needs to be adjusted for this. It is just annoying since Acrobat has the same issue and it's a pain  to quickly select between them.

Yeah - been there,  wearing the t-shirt.  The difference between the two pictures below is a click on the folder icon.  Right-click the Elephant for the 'pin to' options...  ;)

Hmmn.  Windows 10's power is only exceeded by its mystery.  If uninstall / reinstall didn't fix this I'd recommend contacting support...

It should meanwhile be possible to navigate to the app folder and find the EXE file and right-click > send to desktop (creates a desktop icon) or just hit the Windows key and type as much of Evernote as you need to get the app up in the find window.
