Windows 10 Start menu not working.

Is your start menu not working in Windows 10?

I’ve seen this problem pop up a couple of times. This problem mostly occurs on one account. The fix is fairly easy the problem seems to be related to the Windows 10 apps.  If this issue occurs on more than one account I suggest you first run SFC/scannow which repairs and restores corrupt Windows system files.

We can repair the apps with the following PowerShell Command:

Open up PowerShell by pressing Windows + R and type powershell

Then copy and paste in the lines below:

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

Powershell AddXPackage

Basically what this does is repair/reinstall all the Windows 10 apps. After this your start menu should be working again.
