Thanks for the advice. Oddly enough, when I "restarted" to see if Windows could find the reinstalled printer, it didn't just restart, it launched into another "update" and when the computer was restarted after that update, the printer was there and the scanner was there, but, alas, the feature of the start menu that I liked so much was still gone, the drop down menus with recently opened files.
I'm of two minds about the situation. I think this round of updates was a big one and it is possible that I starting using the computer in between two updates, before it had had a chance to put all of its ducks back in a row.
It is annoying, though, to turn the monitor on in the wee hours and find out that you have to twiddle your thumbs because Windows is in the middle of an update that can't be interrupted.

My boss wants to call the Attorney General's office to complain about Windows 10 forcing itself on all of our company computers.
We are in the middle of a 10 week Pharmacy Technician class and the entire curriculum is housed on "OneDrive", but with the Windows 10 Update it could screw up our delivery of the academics so we are holding off on the Update, but it keeps asking and forcing itself on us
**** Bill Gates!

Suggestion: Hover mouse over blank space on "Start menu" and RIGHT CLICK- then choose "Settings". Underneath "Themes" there should be another listing called "Start". Click on that and you should see 2 sliders that correspond to the issues you have mentioned "Show Most Used Apps" and "Show Recently Added Apps". Perhaps these have reverted to the "Off" position for some reason.

Seattlerat seems to be using ClassicShell which is a Windows 10 Start Menu replacement.
It makes the start menu like Windows 7
