Windows 10: Taskbar and Desktop not working! Need help urgently.

    Taskbar and Desktop not working! Need help urgently.


    Hey guys, this will be my first thread about an issue that urges me to post on this forums.

    This issue has been with me for 2 months, I am unable to do my work and projects due to this burden of my computer. I have followed everything, from step by step tutorials of how to solve this problem to HD video tutorials and still doesn't work.

    My taskbar isn't working, cannot open the start menu and virtually anything. I can open my folders app on the taskbar but it will hang eventually. On the desktop, I couldn't launch any apps at all, except for the recycle bin (it will hang eventually too).

    I have tried advanced troubleshooting but doesn't work at all. I wouldn't want to remove all my files too (kinda important and I could not move all of them to a hard drive).

    I hope someone here is computer expert, and help me with this problem. I am already 'handicapped' and clueless what to do.

    Thanks!!

    Have you tried this?
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    Leaves programs installed, preserves most settings, leaves system restore disabled (so enable it and set a scheduled task to set restore points).

    Most important, make sure you have adequate backups.

    Otherwise, check for program conflicts using a clean boot.

    Use the Tech Bench link below and download Win 10 ISO
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench
    Make sure you select your version of Windows 10, language as well as the bit version.

    Once the iso is downloaded, right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe
    Installation will begin.
    It will allow you to keep you files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.
