Windows 10: Win+X menu fails to pop up or pops up but the menu entries do not

    Win+X menu fails to pop up or pops up but the menu entries do not

    I've got two standard profiles and one administrator profile on my lap top.
    Win+X works for the standard profiles , but not for the administrator profile. How come?
    I have checked that the winx files are where they should be in (<administrator>/appdata/local/Microsoft/Windows/winx)
    Could they be corrupted? Could I just copy the files from one of the standard profiles that works, to my administrator profile? Would that solve it?

    Did you solve this problem? I'm working on one like it, too. Nothing yet.

    This does, however, match a recent hunch: permissions or UAC.

    You can try this:
    Open Admin Command Prompt, copy and paste the line below and run to make sure there's no System Files corruption:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth&sfc /scannow&pause
    then use this link below:

    Thank you for responding. My problem turned out to be an old ShellExtension that wasn't compatible with Win10. I deleted it and all was well.
