    Cannot Customize Start Menu

    Hello all,

    I have looked throughout the forums and I cannot seem to find an answer to my problem, or anyone else with the same problem. I just downloaded and installed Windows 10 between last night and this morning. Everything was going great, until now.

    For some reason, I cannot customize the start menu anymore. I was able to do it a couple of hours ago. I cannot move tiles, unpin tiles, or pin anything new on there.

    Any and all help would be appreciated!

    I have it even worse. I can no longer click on the start menu button and have anything happen. It just does nothing with a left mouse click. The message abut the known bugs did mention Start menu unregistering (whatever that means).

    You're right on that!
    I did try to shutdown and restart multiple times. That is always my first go-to fix.

    I just went to that post. I did what it said, hoping that maybe in the process of changing the start, it would fix my problem as well. No such luck. I am still stuck with not being able to move or get rid of/add anything in the start menu

    Did you install the latest update - it cleared up the problem for me?

    I tried a lot of stuff, none of it helped. The "going back to resizable Start" let me access the Start button again but none of the apps in the right hand section would run, they would just open and close.
    I tried recovery, did not fix it.

    I had to do a fresh install. That worked.
