    Start menu won't open from taskbar on the desktop


    I upgraded to Windows 10 last night and have had nothing but problems. The biggest one is the fact that I cannot open the start menu, I had worked around it by right clicking it and then selecting what I needed from there. However now that doesn't even work.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Update: Did a hard reboot and on restart some updates were installed. Seems to have fixed the issues for now.

    What do you mean by that? I've been having the same problem and don't know how to fix this issue :\

    Hard reboot just means to turn your computer off via the power button manually instead of waiting for it to go through the normal procedure.

    I'm not sure what caused the updates to install at the moment unfortunately, I didn't manually download anything. I think I may have done something last night that caused some of the updates to pause and they only just kicked in.
