Windows 10: Taskbar/Start button not working!
Last time I used a bat file from this forum, it locked up my machine. I would suggest to everyone that is still having this problem, to get the Anniversary Update installed. Microsoft did finally address the problem and it's fixed in Windows 10 Version 1607.
Start menu not working
Yes, the Anniversary Update fixed my start menu problem.
the last update for win10 TP caused my start menu -> shutdown button to stop working, now when i should be able to choose sleep/restart/shut down by pressing the power button, it instead drops me back to the desktop.
its not the huge issue since i can do the thingie via locking off from the desktop, but its still annoying
I have not heard of any start button problems from anyone that is running the 1607 version I want everybody to be aware of not trusting random batch files. BE CAREFUL.
I found a work around to that: Try to open File Manager, then go to 'Local Computer', and type 'Powershell' in the little search bar, and look for 'Powershell.exe' in the search results. That's how I managed to find it and get it running as an admin.
Anyone know where the attached batch file AveYo used to fix the start menu issue is? Much appreciated!!!!
I don't kmow if it's still hrere, but I remember what it did to my system when I ran it. I lost everything, had to do clean install from ISO file, which I still say is the best answer.
1607 Version and still no Task or Start
I lost my Start and task bar usage. Metro apps launch then close. If I restart in safe mode my start button works as wellas my task bar......tried power shell and scripts, no work...... any thoughts?
Just figured id share how I finally ended up solving my issue with cortana and search bar. I put the file on google drive, download the file and open and locate "enable cortana" if it asks you for consent, click continue continue ok until the dialog box closes. The last one should say that it was successful. Sign out of your account and sign back in. Thats it! solved for me. I was nearly ready to do a restore.
Enable Cortana.reg - Google Drive
Backup registry first to be safe, I know I should warn on that. Though it should not be an issue.
