    The start button wasn't working after a power outage so I was googling how to fix that and ended up doing what the kid said in a youtube video which involved doing this:

    *Open Command Prompt as Admin
    *The Command is "sfc /scannow"

    Now after restart the computer is in safe mode and a popup says:

    'This app can't open - Get Started can't be opened using the Built-in Administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again. '

    I don't have any other accounts to sign into so Im not sure what to do..

    I don't think it has something to do with an admin account. "Get Started" is an app, and I don't think all apps can run in Safe Mode, hence the error you encountered.

    Try this:
    press the Windows key + R, to bring up the Run dialog box.
    type in "msconfig" and press Enter
    in the window that appears, open the "Boot" tab, and in that tab make sure that "Safe Boot" is not checked.
    Restart your PC afterwards.

    I have the same problem "Start Button Wont Work". This is what happens in my pc. I start PC after more than 6 hours of sleep or poweroff it will give me a blue screen. After that none of UWP apps work including "start menu, volume control, settings, action centre etc". So I will just restart the PC and it works as it should.


    Every week I check for any errors using

    sfc /scannow

    if any errors found I will use

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess


    try this it might work for you too.
