Start Menu and Taskbar not working in my windows 10




Earlier I faced issue with windows 10 start menu but after updating operating system, It was resolved.

Now again some user complains about windows 10 start menu and taskbar not working .Users complains that “My Taskbar functions only work with right click. The Start button does not work. The volume for my speakers was not working.”


Second one is “The Taskbar and all other functions including the Start and Cortana work with a standard user, however they do not work under the administrator.”


So let me discuss the solution for windows 10 start menu and taskbar issue including Cortana search not working.




1. Find C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe


2. Right-click and Run as Administrator


3. Copy this line:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}


4. Right-click in the Powershell window to Paste and then press Enter.


5. There is no need to restart. The fix should implement right away.


If you have previously disabled Windows Firewall or do not have it running, the above steps will result in errors. Use the steps below to enable Windows Firewall and the reverse if you wish to turn it off again afterwards.


1. Right-click the Start button -> Click Run


2. Type Services.msc and press Enter


3. Scroll down to find Windows Firewall


4. Right-click then click Properties


5. Under Startup Type dropdown -> Select Manual. Click Apply


6. In the top left portion of the Services Window, Click Start this service.


7. Now follow the steps in the first section, and it should work.


These steps worked for me. They have no guarantee to work for you. Just trying to spread some help/love. Best of luck to all in your troubleshooting.
