Many users who have upgraded to the new Microsoft Windows operating system are experiencing a problem that is certainly very annoying. For a long time now, a bug has afflicted the start menu of Windows 10 that does not open in any way and does not even respond to keyboard commands.
If we add then that in most cases even the right click on one of the icons anchored to the taskbar does not work. Really this is very annoying.
If your Windows 10 start menu suffers from one of these problems, then try adopting one of the solutions listed below to get everything back to normal.
Open the command prompt and start a System File Checker. Normally just write in the Windows search bar: CMD and click on Command Prompt.
If you can’t open the prompt because of the problem with the Windows start menu, follow these quick steps:
- Select an empty spot on the desktop and click with the right mouse button.
- Go to New and click on the Link item.
- Once the link is created, you will see the string Enter the path for the link. Enter this path (without quotes): “C: \ Windows \ System32 \ cmd.exe”. On the desktop you will now find the command prompt. Right click and select Run as administrator.
- Now, to run the System File Checker I mentioned, you need to enter this line in the command prompt:
sfc / scannow
Once the scan is complete, restart the PC and check if it has been useful to solve the problem. In most cases, the Windows 10 start menu is functional again.
You can try to repair the Windows image. For this operation, simply open the command prompt and copy-paste this command line:
Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth
Also in this case, restart the PC to verify the resolution of the problem.
