    So the issue that I am having is the start menu won't react, however Cortana does.... I have tried a second user account, restarting it several times, fsc /scannow (it said all good) and the

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    code and still have no luck. Any other suggestions?*Confused

  3. Start Menu "dead", Search "dead", Edge in debug-like mode, etc.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    You can roll back to older Windows version, if you have not deleted Windows.old folder.
    Upgrade to Windows 10 is available for a limited time: you have until July 29, 2016 to take advantage of this offer. Once you upgrade, you’ll have Windows 10 for free on that device.
    Upgrading Windows and activating it register the hardware of your PC for future use. If you changes the hardware your Windows 10 will no longer be activated and free.



    To rollback to Windows 8/7 from Windows 10, kindly refer to the Go back to your previous version of Windows section in the below given link:

    Hope this information helps. Please post back with the results, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
