    Start Menu is horribly broken. Really "broken" is enough but in this case all of my shortcuts don't work anymore since the last update.

    I'm forced to open File Manager, find the program folder, executable and start a program that way. I realize, as most people do, this is a preview build, but come on, really! At least the Menu should work.

    Also, why in the world do I need in some cases to right-click and run anything as Admin???

    Thanks! This worked for me also in Build 10122. I believe it happened when I enabled/added a new user account.

    Nothing mentioned here works. Amazing such a bug is so common and Microsoft are not on top of it. :(

    In my case this problem occurred in build 10130. After encountering this problem which began following a batch of updates on 12th June I tried most of the solutions posted here & they failed to work for me. My simple solution which did work for me; Right click on desktop, select "Personalize", click on "Start" tab Customise list and switch on "Occasionally show app and content suggestions in the Start menu", switch on "Store and display recently opened programs in Start" and switch on "Show the recently added apps group". I feel that one of the recent updates may have changed the switch settings.
    Hope this works for you :-)

    Thank you so much! For me it was the "Store and display recently opened programs in Start". After I enabled that feature, the start menu worked again..

    Bugga, you are bloody legend..

    I guess they want us to stress test these options before the peasants get the OS.

    FINALLY found a fix for my Start Menu issue, and I can't even believe how easy it was:

    If you go to Settings/Personalization/Start, and turn on the first three options- Suggestions, Recently Opened, and Recently Installed, the start menu will return (or, at least, it did for me).
    I went back, and turned them off, and the menu went away again.

    Not sure if it will work for you, but it's the ONLY fix that I've found on the net that worked for me.

    I hope this help you guys!

    Worked for me on Build 10240, fantastic thanks a lot.
    I had to reset my PC and Surface Pro multiples times, each time resulting in the loss of all installed programs.
    I think the problem was caused by one of the programs I installed and I suspect Adobe Cloud CC to be the culprit; however I'm not inclined to test it for confirmation.

    Hi there, was searching for a solution to this and then foudn the answer myself by accident.
    Right click on the task bar and then click properties, click the tab called Navigation and then at the bottom click the button that says "show start on the display I'm using when I press the Windows logo key"

    Fixed it for me

    I have found the perfect solution in my case:

    This fixed my broken Windows search:

    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"}

    As soon as I let it run its course, everything appeared as expected.

    I installed Windows 10 yesterday, the official release. I have literally tried every solution, and nothing works. I can open programs on the taskbar, but the Start Button, navigator bar thing, and windows exe. do not work. I cannot open folders or the control panel. Nothing.

    Windows is stupid sometimes.
