  2. Start Button displaying but not working


    The start button was working until there was a forced reboot (power failure). Then left click (normal click) over the start button does absolutely nothing. Right click brings up a menu but "programs" and also "settings" are missing and not included on this list. Search or Task View buttons do not work either with "normal" click. Does anyone have any suggestion or fixes?
    Thank you in advance *Huh

    Start Button and taskbar not working


    I did as suggested but didn't get to Troubleshoot or Reset computer. When it started back up with taskbar was complete and start button working. Everything seems ok, but slower. So thanks for that. Can you tell me about creating restore point manually and creating system image backup ?

  4. Start button and search button of the taskbar not working

    Start button and search button of the taskbar not working.

    My PC start and search button of the taskbar is not functioning. Whenever I clicked on start and search button, nothing happens, there is no start menu and no search dialogue box on clicking those buttons. However, when I hover on the start and search buttons,
    they display 'start' and 'type here to search'. Cortana is functional for now.

    My start button stopped functioning 2-3 days prior of search button stopped functioning. I tried to open start menu by pressing on windows key in keyboard but it didn't work out. However, windows key is functional when working for other short cut functions
    such as windows key+ r, to open 'run' dialogue box.

    Another thing is, my pc produces unusual 'beep' sound when I press windows, ctrl, alt and shift keys. This existed even before the start and search buttons stopped functioning and still persists.
