    My boss wants me to test out Windows 10 for the company. I did a clean install of Windows 10 on my computer. I can use the start menu, MS Edge, Cortona, and the App Store just fine when logged into the local admin account. However when I am logged into my domain account with administrative privileges I can't get any of them to work. I have to right click on the start menu and task bar to do anything. Can yea help a brotha figure this out? Does anyone have this same issue?

    Cortana and the App Store etc. are heavily dependant on a Microsoft account to work. Perhaps you may consider adding or creating a "company Microsoft account" and tying it to your domain?

    Check your antivirus, some interfere with those items. When you join the domain, does it install antivirus?

    Ed Boland: Can a "company Microsoft account" be created and used for multiple users or would we have to create them on a individual basis. Dewg: Yes when joined to the domain antivirus is installed.

    I'm not entirely sure. After looking around a bit, it looks like they've changed some of their MS account dependencies with Windows 10. Read more here:

    And here:

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Maybe someone with more company domain account experience will chime in soon.
