Windows 10: Can't click start or search with new update. Solved

    Can't click start or search with new update.


    Hello, I managed to update the Windows to the last version, but now when I want to click here:

    Click image for larger version.

    Task View opens, but search and start does not.

    I had to take a photo because I cannot open paint, since I can't open the start menu.

    Anyone knows why ? This happened after updating to the last build.

    Suggestions :

    1. Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > type powershell > press Enter.
    At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line ( to avoid typo it's best to apply Copy/paste method)......
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    > press Enter.


    2. Create another user account with exactly the same account type > logon to it and see if you have the same problem or not.

    P.S. This is not a solution, but give this a try...........
    Right click at an open spot of the desktop > select Personalize > left side, click Start > right side, scroll to "Use Start full screen" and turn it to ON. Does Start Menu open up ?

    I rebooted the PC and it works now. But after the last update windows became very very slow.
