    Out of options to recover START, Search and Tiles


    Sometime in December, 2015 my keyboard Windows button and my task bar Start menu and Search stopped working and without the ability to START I lost all the tiles. I have followed suggestion after suggestion about how to fix this apparently not-so-uncommon problem and nothing has fixed this issue. Windows has now become very cumbersome to use.

    I have given up on Windows 10 and it's too late to recover Windows 7 (Windows 7 was great). Really wish this had not happened as I have been a Windows user since version 3.1.

    I guess I posted this here because I'm frustrated with the problem and need to air it out. Must buy a new PC.

    Instead of buying a new computer, why don't you just download an ISO file of Windows 10 and do a clean install. That should fix all of your problems.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Rocky. I re-installed W10. Lost most of applications that were not original to this Gateway. It was a machine that Best Buy had declared DOA when my daughter took it in for repair so I bought her a new one and fixed this one myself. Only a couple of work-arounds needed to get it going. Anyway, I now have a working task bar with start menu, Cortana and tiles.
