Windows 10: Taskbar/Start button not working!
This worked for me!! Thank you so much!!
That worked for me too but only for a short while.
got a similar issue where i can move my mouse and all, click on things but stuff wont open, i can open the menu and turn off the pc but it will simply be in a constant turning off loop, went so far as to get a new ssd ram and gpu but rubbish didnt work
Click on things meaning everything? and loop? your computer loops when you turn it off
i can click on icons and thins in the tray, but nothing will open, and no when you turn off your pc it will usually say "turning off pc" and it will in my case constantly sit in that

I tried the powershell fix, but it didn't work for me. I got some error message saying to contact my software vendor.
I just ran the registry function in ccleaner and fixed the registry issues, which seemed to work, after rebooting.
Tells me I need administration privilages to do this, and because I opened it throught CMD I can't really right-click and open as administrator.
Is there a way to open as admin through the CMD without using the taskbar at all? I can't even search anything on the windows search bar or anything.
Are you able to right-click the Start (window) button? If you are, you should see the prompt there.
