    Start Menu and Quick Launch

    Hi, I upgraded to Windows 10 today, however the start menu will not open, and only certain items work when I right click on the windows icon. Also, the quick launch icons on the task bar do not work, and won't even let me right click them.

    Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated! It's doing my head in now!

    windows 10

    I had exactly the same after updating- nothing seemed to work , could not open start menu or search. So I left the machine running overnight. In the morning I did a shut down, and then once the machine booted up everything worked! It seemed that windows had downloaded three updates in the night - perhaps this is what was needed. Anyway, looking at my hard disk it seemed that new AMD graphics drivers had been downloaded - there is an AMD folder that wasn't the before.

    I've had the update since 29th July and the more I use it the better it becomes - startup was very slow and now it is much quicker.
