  3. Start menu and Cortana not working

    I have tried all the steps shown and still no start menu or Cortana. Some of the instructions seem to be windows 7 or 8 based so it was difficult to follow in the different structure of Windows 10.

    Are there any other solutions you can suggest. I've checked several other sites, with similar solutions and nothing is working.
