    A bizarre problem


    I've had this problem for a while now. The buttons on my taskbar don't work. launching programs works fine, but opening the start menu, volume controller, wifi controller, search do nothing. no errors, no complaints, no freezing. Just. Nothing. Ive been making do with the run menu etc, but Im starting to get fed up.



    stupid things like this are why I hate this god forsaken operating system. Why cant the world just use linux like sane people? on linux its actually possible to bugfix things...the necessary evils of windows that we gamers have to put up with...*sigh*

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi, unless you're very lucky and MS has recently fixed it, that Powershell command breaks apps as from some time after 10586. It used to 'fix' them = 'reinstall', but you'll probably end up with a load of them with an @ in front.

    Unless there's a specific fix you could try:
    a. System Restore (if you had it enabled and there's a useful restore point)
    b. an in-place upgrade repair install
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    (needs Windows install medium, leaves almost everything intact, and is the option used by people after spending a long time hoping for a specific fix).

    A much faster option is to routinely use disk imaging-- very strongly recommended in particular with this immature OS.
    - fast restore to a previous working state
    - full backup of what's imaged
    - preserves your system and your sanity

    I tried snoopy's suggestion, got some errors. Is there a package for the taskbar itself?
