    To reduce any confounding factors consider an in place upgrade repair.
    There is little downside and it may fix or improve the problem.
    The program shortcuts are likely to have to be pinned again.
    If it does not fix the problem then it is more likely in the registry.

    1) Find a flash drive that you can format ( > or = 8 GB)
    2) Create a brand new bootable Windows 10 iso
    Download Windows 10
    3) Insert the Windows 10 iso into any USB port
    4) Open file explorer
    5) Identify the Windows 10 iso
    6) Launch it by clicking setup or setup.exe
    7) Do not click install
    8) Click repair your computer
    9) Follow the text and images in this link:
