    I experienced the same after installing Build 10061 and eventually I had to perform a clean install to correct the issue.

    I tried the following fixes:
    -PowerShell script to force the re-install of all apps
    -Registry fix to EnableXAMLStartMenu
    -"Refresh" of Windows 10
    -Creating a new local account

    None of these worked for me, but you could try, if not I'd recommend backing up your data & performing a clean install from the 'Recovery' options.

    After a refresh recently I got the same thing on 10061. No start menu, no modern apps, and no Cortana. Only solution I found was a fresh install of windows. If you trace through the windows files there is actually a "app" for the start menu UI and I think it corrupts. I would highly recommend not using system refresh or restore as this is how my cortana/start menu always breaks with these builds.

    I ended up doing a clean install. My Surface Pro 3 has been working well. The start button and Cortana became inactive once or twice but came back after I rebooted. It's a shame to have to go through this, but I hesitate to complain because I signed up for this risk.

    I had the same issue on my Surface Pro. Added my backup Microsoft Account and everything worked perfectly.
