  1. Start Menu and taskbar icons froze up.


    Today the start menu and taskbar froze up and refused to open. I had to do a restart using task manager. Working fine now, but are there any ways to resolve this issue without having to restart the computer, in case this happens next time? A bit annoyed that such an issue persists on an RTM build.

    :)

  2. Can not open the start menu anymore

    I installed Windows 10 yesterday and while playing a game, my computer froze and I had to reboot. Now, nothing happens when I click on the start menu button. Also, the Microsoft Edge icon disappeared from the taskbar and I don't know where to find it.
