    Just for starters, Hold the windows key down and press the X key. See if you get a menu that should have several options as well as the option to shut down or restart. See if that will work and let me know. If it does, select command prompt (Admin) and copy/paste this into the window. sfc /scannow. If it says errors were found, reboot and run it again. You may have to run it 3 times before getting the 'Windows found no integrity violations', which is what you want it to say. Let me know how it goes, and welcome to Tenforums.

    Thank you I got it resolved on accident. After powering on and off multiple times I had access again to the start menu. I was told it's an issue on Windows 10. I will remember those suggestions if it happens again.
