I am facing a corrupted user profile which does not allow me to open any of the Windows Icons in my task bar (Start menu, notifications, volume, network do not response to left click) Microsoft Edge even disappeared from the task bar when I clicked on it.
I am told one of the fixes is to create a new user profile, but I cannot afford to reinstall and reconfigure all the software in it. I was also told that an In Place Upgrade may help to fix Windows 10 issues, however I have not confirmed if the In Place upgrade (To keep all my files, programs and folders just like I did the upgrade from Windows 7 to 10) would also fix my user profile and leave all of my files intact.
Could someone confirm this please? It is much easier to wait for 2 or 3 hours for the reinstall, than spending days reconfiguring the programs
