    Start Menu and Taskbar Not Working After Feb 2024 Windows Update


    Hey there, I have an issue. My laptop auto-updated on 29/02/2024 and when I woke up in the morning, the taskbar and Start menu weren't working. I can't get to Windows settings either. The only thing I have access to is File Explorer and the apps that have icons on my desktop. Is there any fix for this?

    :)

    Hi Deva,

    Thank you for updating.

    I suggest you to refer the link below and follow the troubleshooting steps suggested.

    Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana.

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Start Menu and Taskbar Not Working After Feb 2024 Windows Update

    Taskbar - Search Icon does not work, Start Menu missing, Right click does not work, no "Taskbar and Start Menu" in control panel

    Hi,

    Here are the possible causes why Taskbar and Start menu don't work:

    • Corrupted user profile
    • Corrupted or missing system files

    Since running SFC didn't resolve the issue, we suggest creating a new user account
    to recreate your Taskbar and Start menu.

    We would appreciate an update about how it went.
