Windows 10: Taskbar/Start button not working!
Nope. Microsoft way is wait till next Threshold Build, 3 eta -March.
Tqvm AveYo... it works for me...now my home button n search button are working just fine
I tired this, but as it ran, it gave me Access Denied for each command?
I have tried this solution and the startbutton is working again. But with some things (like opening a video or a phote) I receive the message that RPC can't be executed.
How can I solve this?
I had this annoying problem too. The Network Settings, Power & speaker icons would only work when I ran the Add-AppxPackage. The problem was it only worked for that session and not when I shut down and re-booted. Fortunately, an update to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586 has fixed this.
I had this problem over the weekend. I tried just about every action listed in this thread, and nothing worked. As a last resort, I created a new id and copied everything over to it. Ugly, but it worked.
BTW, I read in one of these posts that someone couldn't create the new id because Windows was complaining about the new id not being able to logon to a Microsoft account. If you scroll down on the create id screen, you should see a "create a non-Microsoft id", or something like that. That's what I used, and it worked fine.
The long lists of posts to this "Start button not working thread" shows that this is common problem. Come on Microsoft, create a fix!
Running it as administrator solved that problem for me.
I am another one in the club.
Start button and apps stopped working both on my laptop and desktop on the same day! No methods help.
On desktop Start button keeps working for Admin account and in Safe mode for all other accounts.
On laptop it works no way and nowhere.
Amazing, but on laptop even Windows reinstall via PC refresh didn't make things work.
Last thing I wanna do is complete reinstall and then kill a couple of days for tuning system once again. Damn!
I don't know if it would help, but I downloaded the classic shell and have customised my start button and menus as they were on windows 7.
I have made a clean reinstall of Windows 10 with formatting of all disks. And what?
Apps stopped working after 2 minutes of first log-on. I didn't ever managed to install a single driver or third party application!
After reboot Start button stopped working too. It also never works on newly added accounts.
Microsoft, what's the hell ???!!!
I want jump lists on both taskbar and Start button, they are only showing on Start button. I have checked the registry key that controls this attribute and the value is "1" so both should show. The "Show recently opened items... " switch in...

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
