Hello Carlos dos Santos,

We have been trying to repro this experience without much luck. Going forward, the plan is to not have shortcut icons automatically pinned ot the start page, and users will select the ones they want displayed there.

I am going to resolve this as Not Repro. If you are unable to manually add VS to your start page, please feel free to comment.

Thanks for reporting the issue.
In order to fix the issue, we must first reproduce the issue in our labs. We are unable to reproduce the issue with the steps you provided.

It may help if you provide us with:
a setup log file

You can get the log files with the following steps:
1) Download collect.exe from the link below.
2) You may choose to save the tool for later use, or to run directly.
3) The utility creates a compressed cabinet of all the VS and .NET logs to %TEMP%\

You can get more details about how to get the log files here:

Thanks again for your efforts and we look forward to hearing from you.
