    Lost everything on W10


    I lost Edge, IE11, start menu, power turn off and I guess just about everything on W10. Is there a way I can restart W10 from the beginning. thanks

    Is your Start button still there ?

    If yes, does right click at the Start button still work ?
    If yes again.........
    RIGHT click at the Start button > click "Shut down or sign out" > a popup box will appear, Restart is one of the options.
    Press Shift key and hold > click Restart > wait > click Troubleshoot > click Reset this PC > follow the prompts from then on.............

    Start button is there and stays lit only. When I put the cursor on it, it goes off

    I meant right click at the Start button.
    Does it respond to right click ?
