    Start menu and Store title are not opening

    Suddenly Start Menu and Store icon shortcut on taskbar are not opening anymore. Below is a screenshot of the message I get when I attempt to open Store shortcut You can also note the Store icon is missing from taskbar.

    What can I do to solve this?

    Windows 10 edition is Home Single Language. Thanks in advance.

    By any chance have you disabled service: Distributed Link Tracking Client ?

    No, this service is not disabled. Stopped and restarted it manually but no luck. Also noticed that volume slider, wi-fi network window, power options and other tray icons are not opening. Maybe it's related to Explorer? Performed a sfc /scannow on an elevated prompt but it didn't fix anything, despite reporting that some files were corrupted and then repaired.
