    Start Menu does not open after uninstall of Classic Shell

    After uninstalling Classic Shell, my start menu on Windows 10 build
    [Version 10.0.15063]
    (which is what Command Prompt tells me) decided to no longer function. I have been using this computer for over a year, while Classic Shell has been installed for the past 6 months. I feel like as if this is a me problem and not the computer's problem.

    I would appreciate if replies related to this issue were easy to read, and easy to follow.

    Please open the PowerShell by pressing Windows + X keys, and execute following command:

    Sfc  /Scannow
    After Sfc command finish executing check to see Start Menu works if not execute following command:

    Get-AppxPackage –AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    I don't have a solution for you. Sorry.
    But I wonder: Why uninstall Classic Shell?
    For me that's like "I cut off my leg and now I can't walk".
    I won't uninstall Classic Shell because I need it, almost as much as I need my legs. :)

    Normally just closing Classic Shell (- as a process when it is installed) means the default Win 10 button functions normally.

    And when Classic Shell is running, you can launch Win 10's menu with a key combination.

    Were you able to do either of those things?

    And what is your full windows build number?

    Win 10 rs1 - build 14393.1944

    You are on the Win 10 Creators version - you must upgrade Classic Shell to version 4.3.1 for that version and the new
    Fall Creators version.

    Then everything will work OK again!
