    Windows 10 Pro (Mix of Builds) / Linux Mint

    Start menu power button no longer working - 14905.1000

    Hello Gang,

    One laptop I have on the IP fast build, now on 14905.1000 has this issue.

    Click start, then click power, and blink, the start menu just closes, no options given for shutdown.

    The options above for settings and file explorer work just fine, left or right click.

    Any thoughts?

    Workaround has been to cntrl-alt-del and use power button from there to shutdown or restart system.

    Right Click the start button, is what others have suggested

    As you are running the RS2 previews you might want to check our Insider Area ... Windows Insider - Windows 10 Forums for current status of builds etc.
