Best Practice Windows 10 and Roaming Profile

Does anyone like to share their best practices for Windows 10 and roaming profiles ?

I have problems profiles loosing their Start Menu / Search / Action Centre
Loosing Default App Settings
Breaking the entire profiles.

Hypothese : could it be that Windows 10 needs to individually upgrade each profile ?
If so ; How can one upgrade the profile manually ?

Bumping this thread again :

How are you handling Default app settings in combination with roaming profiles ?

Situation

Set Default App settings => Logout => Login => All Default App settings back to Windows Default ( ie Edge )

I can try and write up something for managing File Associations on Windows.

File Associations are not actually part of the Roaming Profile nor would it really be possible to make them roam for quite a large number of technical reasons.

However, it would be possible to control them via ZCM.

Dear Craig,

That would be great. I have done a lot of indept reading. With creating an XML file, which you can set in GPO. 

However this only seems to apply for new user profiles. Any help is appreciated !
