    Portions of Taskbar dead


    Toshiba Satellite L55-A5226, W10 Pro

    Problem just popped up today. I can't launch any program from the task bar. Clicking on the search box does nothing, neither does clicking on the Windows logo. I can launch programs from the desktop OK, and if I place a desktop item on the task bar, that item will launch. Because of this problem, I can't launch my Edge browser. What can I do to get the task bar working again? I need an answer soon since this is my only computer now (other was stolen 2 days ago)
    Fortunately, I had Google Chrome already installed

    :)

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.
