    Windows 10 - Start Icon


    My Windows 10 Start button no longer responds to a left click. I now have to resort to right clicking that icon to shut down my laptop. Does anyone have a solution for this?

    That is how I shut mine down
    Click Start Button works (Left or Right) have tried it.
    Then Right Click
    Then Scroll to
    Shut down or Restart
    Then Right click
    Shut down
    Just done it and it works

    My start button is not responding on left click. I have been working on it for days, all kind of changes in Settings etc etc.
    and restore by an earlier Restore Point; I will try to call the support of this pc (Asus) tomorrow, so I downloaded
    teamviewer.org, in that way the support tech can see in real time what the problem is.
    Hope you can get it fixed too.

    Try this to get your left click working again
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    If that does not work then try this

    If you ask " where is avast?", it means you don't have it installed.
    If so, you can forget about it. Your solution lies somewhere else.
