    Start menu keeps going weird! Still no solution to my problem!

    Hey guys

    I've literally asked on every forum i can think of about this problem and still haven't found a solution

    Some screenshots of my problem! I've tried Run /sfc scannow windows found no problem so i went and did DISM the whole check health scan health thing and nothing happened.

    The only way i figured out to solve this problem was with a .bat file to restart explorer.exe
    @echo off
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe

    start explorer.exe
    This script but keep having to run that every now and again is really annoying after a while. I would like to avoid having to do a full format but i think i might have too

    Any ideas?

    Right click on the Cortana search box. Point to Cortana and click on Show Cortana Icon.
    Gets rid of the large Cortana search input area and places a small search icon in it's place.

    See if that helps.

    What version of Windows 10 do you have?
    32 or 64 bit?
    Home or Pro?
    What build? Enter winver from the Run box or a Command Prompt to see.
    For instance I have Version 1511 OS Build 10586.494.
