    Lost Taskbar


    I am on Build 15241.RS1-Release 160124-1059

    This morning when I tried to log on the task bar at the start menu there were no icons but the window. I tried many times to start but nothing happened.

    I went to the Google icon on the screen and opened it to MSN which worked fine. I can't use EDGE or IE11

    I need assistance please with you ideas.

    Thanks

    I have the feeling you were looking at the Start Menu screen in tablet mode.

    At the taskbar, right side, there is an icon called Notification which is next to Time > click it > click Tablet mode.
    Does that work ?

    Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    Do you have the search bar next to the Start button ?
    If yes, does it work ?

    Is your Insider Preview activated ?
