Win 10 Start Menu


[link to this post]
 
My Start Menu has stopped working, I have googled it and tried a powershell solution which did not work,

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}

If I right click on the start button I get a menu with lots of useful options.

Any Clues.

TIA

Turn it off and turn it back on again. Use alt-F4 to really shutdown.

Thanks that worked.

The powershell thing might have done something, but it definitely needed a power down as well.

I had shut it down before the powershell command and that did nothing.

The other thing is to dump that start menu and use something better, classic shell will work with 10 or if you do not mind paying a bit start is back. Better than those silly tiles and they work.

You can simply UNPIN all the tiles from the start menu, I just left the date....
Tey should have Win 10 NTNT (No Touch, No Tiles !)
