    creator update start button

    since installing creator update I have had a few minor problems.
    now the start button sometimes works sometimes doesn't
    any updates on the horizon to fix creator problems


  2. no "update now" button shown by the update assistant for the latest Windows 10 Creators Update

    I'm trying to update to the latest Windows 10 Creators as soon as possible. I've downloaded the install assistant from "windows-10-creators-update-here" as directed. The Install Assistant says to click the "update now" button, but there is such button
    showing on the screen, so there is no way to start the install. How can I get the install assistant to start?

    Charms not on the right side with apps/ program list always visible.

    you can continue to check for updates, the creators update (1703) will come eventually or, you can get it now by going

    and clicking the update now button.

    when you have the creators update installed you can go to settings -> personalisation -> start and turn off 'show apps list in start menu' you will then have a button in the start menu to show the list of apps only when you want.

    Open administrator command prompt and type or copy and paste these commands:

    1) sfc /scannow (please post the results into the thread)

    2) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth (please post the results into the thread)

    3) net user test /add

    4) shutdown /r

    Upon reboot sign on with the new user named test.

    Evaluate the start button performance with the new user and report into the thread.

    Thanks zbook and apologies for jumping/hijacking others' thread.

    I followed your steps (for my exact same problem) and all of them passed (steps-1 & 2 did not return any errors) and windows start button is working but only for the new user that I created (in step 3) but NOT for my previous (actual) user account. Please advise on how to fix this issue for old accounts.

    Many thanks!

    Well this is odd, I had the same thing and it's noticeable, If I wait for a few mins; it starts to work.
    Sometimes, it's just not even showing. Is this the same thing your dealing with?
    Is it right after you log in?

    There is a method to fix a corrupted account and there is a work around method in this link below:

    To fix a corrupted user account involves making changes in the registry. When you do this you will be able to maintain the same user name.
    The work around method involves creating a new user and then copying the files from the corrupted user name to the new user name. There is a possibility of contaminating the new user with this method. However this may not happen if you only choose specific files to move. (For example not moving the hidden files).
    See this link for text and images:

    I've read that the Start Button issue is caused by the "Windows processes going into a suspended state". It is a Windows 10 function, (Searchui, etc. suspend almost immediately). It is a design 'feature' to allow Apps to run across varied platforms, being suspended they are eligible to be 'swapped out' if necessary by the OS if it runs short of memory - such as if you are running on a Windows phone for example.

    You can go into "Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt_Del) and click on Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) and "Restart" it will then your Start Button will be functional again.

    Or right-clicked the Start button, select Run, paste in "taskkill /IM ShellExperienceHost.exe /F" (without the quotes). This instantly restored my Start menu.

    This guy Terrym has a script available that does this automatically - here Anyone having problems with losing their Start bar in windows 10?

    I ran mbytes, ccleaner, mrt, windows defender and rebooted, all seems to be fine

    nir2014 .
    You have a user account that is corrupted.
    It's best to start using a new user unless you are comfortable working in the registry.
    If necessary you can start a new thead.
