    Alentiev: Have you clicked Reboot or just switched your pc off/on ? It´s not the same. Reboot always (temporarily) fixed that issue for me.

    What's taking so long?


    I just noticed that this thread started in August. It's now January! Microsoft has been touting how great Windows 10 is, but they won't release a fix for this? How hard could it be to fix the Start Button? What could they possibly be doing that's more important than supporting their new, "it just works", O/S? They've probably already given up on 10, like they did 8, and started developing Windows 11.

    I continue to have issues with the Start button failing also. I have to reboot the computer, signing out and signing back in doesn't do it.

    I can't access my programs and HAVE to put a shortcut on the desktop. Microsoft FIX THIS!!! UGH!!!

    Unfortunately, it's not "only Start button", problem is that the whole "modern apps runtime" for some reason sometimes fails to start properly. It looks like MS coders themselves just don't know how to fix it.. Sad but true...

    I think, I finally found origins of the trouble.
    It's all about "Settings/System/Storage/Save locations" settings. When you change "New apps will save to" value from default disk to disk D:, (for example - like in my case) -- the whole bad thing happen. A folder "WindowsApps" appears in the root directory of disk D: and after this Apps, Search and Start button stop to work.

    Unfortunately, I don't know how to fix this.
    • changing "Settings/System/Storage/Save locations: New apps will save to" back to default value - doesn't help
    • Manual deletion of WindowsApps folder on D: -- doesn't help
    • Even rolling back to a previously created restore point -- doesn't help
    • Re-installing/Re-registering apps -- doesn't help

    There is some serious bug out there. The only method is NEVER CHANGE "Settings/System/Storage/Save locations" !!!

    Does anyone know how to prevent the possibility of changing this setting globally? Maybe via registry editing?

    I truly think - it's just ONE of the reasons. There must be a lot more. The whole system with modern apps is all buggy.

    I think that the only way how MS can fix this issue is to gradually rewrite whole modern apps runtime. Seems that's what they're trying..

    Nothing worked for me, except copying the TileDataLayer folder from one of the other accounts on my machine, to the old one. I cant remember where I found the link, but someone suggested renaming the TileDataLayer folder, then copying the folder from another account on the machine which has a fully working Start menu and taskbar. I renamed the folder on my account, rebooted and then copied the folder over from another account. Rebooted and logged in to my user account and the Start Menu and everything else was back and working as normal

    C:\Users\AffectedUserName\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer
