    Start menu, search and other apps won't start from task bar


    Hello,

    I have just upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 10 build 10240

    The sart menu button does not activate anything, search doesn't either, Notification bubble does not open anything either.

    Safe mode produces same behaviour, I have uninstalled AVG Anti virus as some people were correlating AV software with this behaviour.

    I also ran a system checker as suggested in some forums.

    Nada.

    I can right click on the start button but not left click

    Please help!

    I have this issue with Chrome ! Clicking it does nothing ! Have to right click and then select Chrome again in the sub-menu - very frustrating.
