    I had problems with build 10041 and I went back to using build 9926 for the time being. Build 9926 works better for the things I want to do with Windows 10.

    Do not have the Experimental tab


    No experimental tab, no box to check. I have tried turning on the start menu switch in the personalize menu, but it shuts back off. I have tried reinstalling, adding all the updates to today (Sept 5), scanning the drive, so far no success. Probably the next is to make a new user.

    Check out tweaking.com and his Windows Repair tool. I am in no way affiliated and an advanced user. I would normally not consider an app like this, but the free version fixed the exact same problem for me. Try it and follow step by step. I ended up purchasing the Pro version just out of appreciation for the pain it saved me.

    For weeks I was unable to access start menu, notification center, cortana, , vpn wouldn't work right, windows updates kept stalling, and SFC never found anything to repair, no updates from MS to fix, but tweaking.com free tool solved it all. It's clunky, and takes a while to run, but it sure worked. Thanks noonna2678 for suggesting the tool!

    Apps - Re-register in Windows 8 and 10

    Note 1: To be able to access Windows PowerShell you need to Right Click on the Start button and from the Win X menu select Search then type in "Windows PowerShell" without the quotes.

    Note 2: If Windows PowerShell is unreadable when it opens see the images below to make it readable and you will need to close and reopen PowerShell for the changes to take effect.

    *** FIXED *** .... Use 'Classic Shell' for Windows Start Menu


    *** FIXED ***

    None of the above suggested Windows O.S. fixes resolved the problem for me. I did not want to do a Windows Refresh or create a new user account, because I have a highly customized setup that takes a day or two to fully re-configure.

    I implemented a work-around - installed "Classic Shell" software - a free (optional donation) 3rd Party replacement for the Windows Start Menu that I downloaded from the developers website at http://www.classicshell.net/. Nortons, McAfee, WOT, & LinkExtend all said it was OK, so I gave it a go in a VM first, before installing on my physical machine. I was so impressed I donated, even though I am retired and have no regular income

    I have since noticed that there are Classic Shell threads on TenForums.

    Classic Shell does not fix the associated problem of nothing happening when you right click on a taskbar icon to pull up a action menu, or when you click on the date/time to pull up a calendar. However it did give me back a Start Menu.

    BTW - When the Windows 10 Start Menu is dead, you can access 'Settings' by right-clicking on taskbar date/time then clicking 'Properties'

    .... Para Dox
