    Start Menu and ALT+TAB Dont work on PC Startup


    Hey guys,

    I had same issue on previous Windows 10 x64 Pro and a week ago I did fresh installed Windows 10 x64 Pro and facing same issue. Whenever I start my laptop start button and ALT+TAB dont work and when I do LOG OFF or Restart Laptop it will work.

    Edit: Moreover, I dont see folder on Desktop when I do extract from .rar/.zip or create new folder unless I do Refresh Desktop.

    Anyone know how to fix for Lifetime ?

    Regards.

    First try turning off fast startup and see what happens.
    The Pros and Cons of Windows 10 Mode
    - you shouldn't need it as you have a SSD.

    If no joy- could this be a graphics driver problem? Perhaps try using an OLDER driver and hide the upgrade to the current version.

    Put another way- how was this resolved previously?

    1) open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    4) chkdsk /scan
    5) net user test /add
    6) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread
    7) shutdown /r
    8) sign on with the new user named test
    9) report into the thread whether the new user test can use the start menu or problematic keyboard keys.
    10) Open administrative powershell and copy and paste:
    Code:
    Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
    11) Open the Lenovo website > enter the computers product or serial number or model > view drivers > post a URL or hyperlink into the thread
    12) Perform the full Lenovo diagnostic tests on the computer and post results/images into the thread using one drive or drop box share links.

    Uninstall third-party antivirus and firewall programs to find out issue resolves.


    Reinstalled Cortana using the following procedure:

    1. Open an elevated PowerShell window, press Win + X keys to open PowerShell.

    2. Execute following commands one at time.

    Code:
    Get-Process  SearchUI | Stop-Process  –Force
    
    Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    3. Restart your computer.
