  1. Clicking on Windows (Start) button sometimes has no effect whatsoever


    It often happens that I click on the Winows (Start) button and nothing happens. Sometimes the windowed submenu appears, but clicking on some items on it does not do anthing (like for example clicking on users icon - for switching accounts - etc.)

  2. Right clicking on Start Button and clicking the following items fail to activate Eg. Progarms and Features.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the late reply, and thankyou for trying the above steps to resolve the issue.

    Let’s try the step below to fix the issue.

    Method 1: SFC Scan.

    1. From Start screen, type Command prompt.

    2. Right-click on Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator.

    3. Now in the command prompt window, type sfc /scannow (note, there is a space between sfc and /scannow).

    Refer to this article: Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us

    Note: It may ask for windows installation DVD to fix and to enable SFC to make more than minor repairs. Some files saved on your computer might get deleted when fixing corrupted files.

    Method 2: DISM Tool

    I would also suggest you to run the System update readiness command. It detects incorrect manifests, cabinets or registry data, it may replace the incorrect data with corrected version available. Follow the steps.

    1. Press Windows key + X.

    2. Click command prompt (Run as administrator).

    3. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.

    I hope the information helps. If the issue persists, please reply with the details and updated status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you accordingly.

    Thank you.

    Right clicking on Start Button and clicking the following items fail to activate Eg. Progarms and Features.

    1. There was nothing during the installation process that requested that Windows be activated.

    Checking control panel/.../system shows that windows is activated.

    2. Right click Start button gives the list that can be selected. "Activate" was a poor word. Selecting/Clicking "Command Prompt" or "Command Prompt (Admin)" does not cause the command to start or any of the other of the applications that I listed.

    3. There are no pending Windows 10 updates

    4. Checking control panel/.../system shows Windows edition to be "Windows 10 Pro" with no reference to a build number.

    Method 2: I have no issue in opening the Start button

    What happens if you use the Windows key? Is that reliable?
