    my taskbar is gone


    Uh,, my taskbar is gone. What should I do? More info: not start, no Win+E, no Win+R & restarting explorer doesn't help.

    Also, no virtual desktop either. How can I get outa this?

    Huh, meant to post elsewhere. I solved this by going to file:\\\C:\ in my browser and opening explorer, then I navigated to it again then running as admin.

    Can you right click on the Start button and get to Command Prompt (Admin)?

    You basically restarted the Explorer shell? I have noticed a lot of problems with it.

    I have been using Classic Shell, that gives me a start menu regardless. But my Windows Start Menu is always there when I press Win+Shift.

    Yeah, the normal way (through task manager) didn't work, so I had to use a drawn out approach.

    That wouldn't have worked, as the button was gone, thanks though.
