    Hi John,

    Thank you for responding.

    We are glad to know that you are able to access Search bar and notification center after performing the above troubleshooting steps.

    For the issues with Start menu, try the below steps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the below PowerShell command to re-register Start menu and check if it helps.

    Follow:


    • Right click on the Taskbar and select
      Task Manager
      from the context menu.

    • In the Task Manager window, click on
      File
      and on Run new task.

    • Type powershell, place a check mark on
      Create this task with administrative privileges
      and click Ok.

    • In the administrative Windows PowerShell window, carefully type the below command and hit Enter key from the keyboard.

    • Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
    5. Once the command execution is completed successfully, close the PowerShell window and reboot/ restart the computer.

    NOTE: When you are running the PowerShell command, I recommend you to close all the apps on your system and try.

    If the issue still persists,

    Step 2: I suggest you to try the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the below Microsoft article and check if it helps.
