    Yup, that happened to me in the 9879 as well - had to restart explorer via Taskmanager.... Haven't seen it happen yet in 9901 tho'

    It fixed itself, but another problem... Why when I write something in start menu search - it not searches?

    Hello Algiuxas,

    You should be able to move your pointer over the top border of your Start menu until it turns into a double arrow. At this point, you can click and hold, then drag the border up to the size you want.

    How is it that 3rd party apps like Start8 can get the Start Menu spot on whereas Microsoft are still faltering; I thought Windows 10 is all about bringing back the Start Menu.

    I found that the issue with the start menu only occurred for me when I updated to 9879 but when I performed a clean install the start menu worked just fine. So, in the end the start menu does work just fine.

    Well, third parties have had plenty of problems as well. For instance, at least one third party start menu had to be disabled by MS because of issues (which have since been corrected by a new release of classic shell).

    And no, Windows 10 is not "all about" bringing back the start menu. That's just one feature, and only for desktops.

    Isn't it nice how folks jump to conclusions. It's still being built last time I checked. . .

    Had the same issue on a fresh install of build 9841 right after that I got a blue screen and cursor at startup. I did a repair and got back in but the menu seems to fluctuate between small and normal after a reboot. in other words I update and restart and get the small, install office reboot and back to normal. installed different browsers reboot and back to small, restarting explorer.exe via task manager works some of the time. I am downloading the latest build now so we will see.
