    How to Add Restart Start Menu to Desktop Context Menu in Windows 10


    The Start menu contains shortcuts of all your apps, settings, and files.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18317, Microsoft separated the Start menu into its own process, called StartMenuExperienceHost.exe. This has a number of benefits, including simplifying debugging and insulating Start from potential issues impacting other surfaces.

    This will allow you restart the Start menu without having to restart the explorer.exe process.

    Restarting the StartMenuExperienceHost.exe process can be helpful if the Start menu will not open, frozen, or acting buggy.

    This tutorial will show you how to add Restart Start Menu to the desktop context menu of all users in Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use it.
