I can no longer see items in the common groups from the Start Menu.

A. There is a registry flag that sets whether or not the common groups are displayed on the Start Menu. To disable this setting, set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoCommonGroups to 0 using the registry editor (regedit.exe). By default this value will not exist.
