I'm running Windows 10 v1709 build 16299.214. When I link my Android phone via Settings > Phone there is additional text above the Manage phone section. The text says:

Your Progress
(a line of grayed-out icons representing Edge, Cortana, Outlook, Skype, OneDrive, LinkedIn)
You don't have any linked apps. Add your phone to get started. Learn more.

Because this area is grayed out I can't click on Learn More. I have a number of those apps already installed in my Pixel 2 XL: Edge, Cortana, and OneDrive. I can share an item from Edge via "Continue on PC" and it works OK.

What's up with these icons? Should they be turning from gray to an "active" color? The text suggests as much (ie: Your Progress).

I have unlinked and relinked but the message persists. Google didn't return any useful search results re. this.

Thanks for any insight.
