    Taskbar broken

    Okay, this all pretty much started today when I booted up my computer. I can't use the start button, the search bar, none of my applications show up on it, and the date and time are missing. I also can't click the "show desktop" button.

    I've tried killing explorer.exe and restarting it and using windows Powershell to put in the following command:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Unfortunately, no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated. If you guys need any info about my PC, don't hesitate to ask

    Never mind. I did a bit of a hard restart and the problem sorted itself out
