Windows 10: Windows 10 won't allow me to use Taskbar/Start Menu
Windows 10 won't allow me to use Taskbar/Start Menu
This probably has nothing to do with the problem, but I was rearranging some stuff on the Start Menu and Taskbar before it started. So, basically, when I try to hover over the Taskbar, the mouse simply switches to the "loading" animation and won't let me open any pinned programs or open the Start Menu. If I try spamming the Start button on the taskbar, it opens sometimes but closes after a split second, before I can do anything. The same happens with right click menus on the desktop, they instantly disappear. The screen goes black every few seconds. I can still open desktop programs, though they don't seem to be useful. When I open programs, they seem to be exempt from these effects, excluding the fact that most programs are automatically closed. I admittedly do not have much knowledge of computers. I tried most things that came to mind. None worked, of course. I tried doing multiple forced resets, removing the battery, made a useless attempt at resetting the normal way, I tried scanning the registry for issues with CCleaner, I tried getting towards the Control Panel via the right click menu, but it automatically closed. I also tried using Powershell but it took me like an hour just to open it and wasn't of much help either. And lastly I tried ending tasks on the Task Manager, but that just made the entire screen black, so thats great. I can still use the Internet so thats pretty great I guess. But Google didn't help, so I still have no idea how to fix it.
Hello. If you have a Command Prompt icon on your desktop, then open it in Administrator mode and run:

If Command Prompt is needed
If you do Not have a command prompt icon available on your desktop, you can make one by:
- right-mouse click on the desktop
- in "type the location of the item", paste: %windir%\system32\cmd.exe
- click the Next button
- finish button
To open the command prompt in Administrator mode, right-mouse click on the icon, then click on the little context menu that is displayed.
hope that helps
i still have the same effect however, its random as it can get, once a week, once a month or so. reboot helps. WIN+L for logout and then just restart the computer.
SFC /scannow etc never helped with that case so i just decided to live with it
