    Hi, which Windows build have you installed? If 1803 (the current one) you could be experiencing one of the bugs.

    If you are seeing a black screen, there are posts here relating to that. I don't use build 1803 personally.
    What exactly are you seeing when you try to boot?

    Example: I searched the forum for 1803 black screen:

    If you did install build 1803, did you choose to accept updates during the installation?

    And did you follow this procedure (or are you familiar with clean installs)?

    Please complete your system spec including the model of your PC - see mine for comparison.

    because i have everything in E:
    - could you explain please?

    It's fine to have data on a different partition- indeed we recommend it.

    But do you perhaps mean you had relocated folders to that partition or drive, and then done a clean install?

    You also say Cortana search doesn't work.
    You may be able to fix this (a user had this problem recently) by resetting the indexed locations to default.

    Option 3.

    Which build of Windows were you using before you installed 1803?
    Did you accept updates when installing 1803?

    And did you follow this procedure (or are you familiar with clean installs)?

    Please post a screenshot of your start menu.

    Minor points:
    The Control Panel and This PC do not normally appear on the Start Menu - do you mean you had added these after installing Win 10?

    Normally there's a shortcut to This PC on your desktop.
    You can add one thus:
