    I've recently just been able to get my start button and task bar working after installing windows 10 by following these instructions:

    "Press Windows Key + R on your keyboard.
    Key in PowerShell and hit Enter.
    Right click on the PowerShell icon on the taskbar and select Run as Administrator.
    Now paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enter key:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    NOW for the important part ! Locate to : C:/Users/name/AppData/Local/ and delete the TileDataLayer folder."

    However, now when I open the start menu there are no programs there, or tiles, just a lot of blank space with my user icon and name, file explorer, power and all apps.

    Always create a restore point before doing stuff like that... Not sure what can be done now... You can try running sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt.

    Can you click on the notifications and get to settings from there?

    If you can get into settings you have some options to reset your pc...
