    Help restore normal start menu


    Just upgraded to v2004 build 19041.610
    My start menu is not functioning correctly. Troubleshooter pdf with errors attached.

    strtmenuprobs.pdf

    I can't get rid of the front pane which obscures the program list. I can drag it up a bit, but then the front pane will cover it again.
    I do remember way back when that I did some reg tweaks to emulate the aero theme from win7 and some tweaks to cortana, but cannot find the backup .reg file, duh! However, it was working fine until the 2004 upgrade.
    I ran the start menu troubleshooter and attached the pdf of the problems it found but can't correct. Any advice greatly appreciated.
    Thx

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Start menu is empty

    Hi. Steps 1 and 2 didn't do much but step 3 has restored what looks like the list of original Microsoft apps but no sign of any of the many apps I have installed. And there are no tiles in the start menu. Any suggestions please?
