  1. Several windows applications not working.


    I've had this problem for about a day and a half now, and it happened out of nowhere:


    1: The start key and start button don't do anything

    2: I can't search anything with cortana

    3: Anything I try to use to open settings does nothing

    4: Most windows related programs and applications don't open

    5: When I change the volume the number doesn't appear I can still see it if I hover over the volume on the taskbar


    When I try to do most of the things listed there is no error message or pop-up, it just does nothing. The exception is when I try running some windows apps such as a video converter, where it says "class not registered"


    Almost all applications that aren't windows related work fine. Steam, discord, google, and more all function without issue. I can also open task manager and powershell.


    Due to not being able to access settings cortana or the start menu my options for fixing the issue have been severely limited. I've already tried restarting windows explorer, turning off my computer, checking for corrupted files both with powershell and index scan, uninstalling the anti-virus, and clean-booting. Nothing has worked. Is there anything I can do without resorting to drastic measures?

    :)

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
