    Right click on Start should still work and enter into Command Prompt:

    taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F & explorer.exe

    Or you can use an alternative task manager like Process Hacker, right click explorer and just Restart it.

    Start is also explorer process, so it might work, you can also try to restart ShellExperienceHost.exe.
