    Start menu, cortana and edge not working


    So i have an msi laptop which has been amazing, i stopped using it for a while, decided id start it back up.

    I did a system refresh, removing everything so i could start fresh, set it all up and my start button doesn't work, so i reset and still nothing... i have watched so many videos and tried many solutions none to which have worked.

    I tried the dsim clean /restoe the scan and nothing was found

    I tried the get appx package but im hit with a red error,

    Tried making a new account but still doesnt work..

    there was talk of a batch file fix but it seems to be deleted?

    :)

    Edge disappeared and start menu not working on Windows 10

    Hello Richard,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we can isolate the issue regarding Microsoft Edge and Start menu:

    • Have you tried to searching in Cortana search to check if Edge can be located?
    • Besides powershell, what other troubleshooting steps have you performed?

    In the meantime, you can download and run the
    Windows apps troubleshooter to isolate the issue on Edge.

    We also suggest that you download and run the
    Start Menu troubleshooter to fix common Start menu issues.

    We will wait for your response.

    Regards.

  3. Start Menu, Cortana, Edge and sound

    Hi Angel,

    To facilitate your query, we'd like to ask these questions:

    • When was the last time you were able to access Start Menu, Cortana, and Microsoft Edge?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer's configuration prior to the issue?

    Let us try the methods below and observe.

    Method 1: Run Start Menu Troubleshooter.

    Try this Start Menu Troubleshooter to automatically fix problem with Cortana and Start Menu.

    Method 2: Run System File Checker and DISM commands.

    System File Checker is a Windows utility that allow users to scan for and restore corruptions

    in Windows system files. Follow these steps for instructions:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type this sfc /scannow and hit Enter.

    If SFC did not find any violations, it's still a good idea to run DISM Restorehealth. For instructions, please follow these steps:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type this Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth and hit Enter.

    Keep us posted.

  4. Start menu, cortana and edge not working

    Windows Start Menu will not function properly. Cortana and Edge are gone from my main page

    I already posted that I used troubleshooter and it can't fix the system and says that Cortana and another file needs to be lroperly loaded. How does this OS go from working fine to losing Cortana, the start menu function, edge and others in a day? What a
    disaster!
