Windows 10: Taskbar/Start button not working!
Didn't work for me. Basicly I think because of the fact that in my case Start button doesn't work even for newly crated accounts.
I still believe - there's something wrong with file permissions. Because, as I mentioned earlier in this thread, the trouble happened on my system after relocating Apps folder to disk D: (via Settings/System/Storage/Save locations).
Another fact to be mentioned. All my users profiles are kept on disk D: (D:\Users). And only Admin profile is kept within C:\Users.
And start button works under Admin account!
this bat didnt work for me ???
When I select KB3081452 right click option UNINSTALL disappears!!! On others works fine?
Unable to run as administrator
If you press CTRL+ALT+DEL on the keyboard, click Task Manager, then click File, run a new task, enter the command line, click the box 'create this task with administrative privileges', click [OK] and you're away
I'd also enable the built-in administrator as it may come in handy to aid with this fix. net user administrator /active:yes then disable with /active:no when finished.
If taskbar become completely unresponsive, press ctrl+alt+del and reboot pc from there. But be careful, hit REBOOT , not Shutdown ! A full Reboot should at least temporarily solve this annoying issue.
Hmm.. Avast seems to be one of the most common "triggers" of this issue..

Just an FYI, for me a restart (not shutdown) doesn't even remediate temporarily.
That BAT file was obviously well written but it didn't work for me either.
After 2 full days of trying various things on the internet, this post included, my menu is now back! I can't say exactly what sequence of events fixed it, but here's basically what I think contributed to it.
- Ran the BAT file (didn't appear to work at the time)
(Find it here: https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...tml#post321683)
- Deleted the C:/Users/<name>/AppData/Local/TileDataLayer folder
(didn't appear to work at the time; notice I deleted it BEFORE running the powershell script below)
- Ran the powershell script (had run it the day before to no avail)

Now my start menu was working but all my tiles were missing and "All Apps" was missing too! I was afraid I'd really messed things up and started thinking about a restore from an earlier backup.
It's back! My start menu works; my programs are in the "All Apps" section; my tiles are missing but I can set those up again myself.

Start button not working is a known problem and is supposed to be fixed by KB3034229. That update does not show in Windows Update. I also tried a direct download from
