    Left Click on Start Does Nothing


    Windows 10 was working, then I used CCleaner to delete temporary files. Now, when I left click on Start, there is a momentary blue circle over Start indicating that the machine is busy performing a task, but nothing else happens. Right clicking on start brings up a menu of control panel possibilities but no Live Tiles.

    It's possible that the malfunction has nothing to do with CCleaner.

    :)

  2. Clicking Start Button does nothing

    Downloaded Windows 10 yesterday and went thru initial settings and left click on start button worked fine. Before I shut down I launched Excel 2007 and at this time the laptop froze. Since rebooting left click of Start Button does nothing. Came across a
    Geek House post suggesting

    1. Go to run (Windows + r)

    2. type regedit and press enter.

    3. click ok when notification window prompt.

    4. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advance

    5. Create a Dword with name ‘EnableXamlStartMenu’.

    6. Give it value 0

    7. Log off and login again.

    Started doing this but did not know if Dword (32) or (64) so stopped (I am on a 4yr? old ASUS laptop) and really would like to know this is the best approach before doing above. sfc /scannow revealed nothing.

  3. Clicking Start Button does nothing

    For me, everything was working fine, except Microsoft Edge which I won't use because it's unsafe for browsing since it doesn't allow extensions. Suddenly, the morning of 9/29/15, left clicking the Start button has done nothing- no programs/apps listed
    on the left edge, no start menu, no pin to start, nothing. I can still right click it to log off or shut down, etc. but my computer, since I was out of town when the last cumulative update was put out, claimed Windows was updating my computer. Can't find
    Windows Update anywhere and the search box doesn't work- Windows Update is gone from Control Panel, no way to access Settings. What a bug-ridden piece of **** Windows 10 is.
