  1. Start menu, News and Interests and Action Center doesn't open


    So, when I was shutting down my pc and go do something else earlier, when it was shutting down, it was telling me something like file explorer cannot access memory or something, and when I turned on my pc just now, the taskbar was loading significantly slower than before and the start menu, the news and interests panel and the action center would'nt open. Ive tried restarting windows explorer via the task manager, restarting the computer but both of them didn't help. I have no idea whats going on.

    :)

    Original Title: I cannot open the start menu 2nd time

    Hello,

    Yes, I know that this request for help seems familiar, and that is because it has been around a very long time. I had the same problem on this computer about six weeks ago. I thought I had fixed the problem with a Systems Restore, and a Reset operation.
    The problem now is the same as before except that some of t

    Hi Mitchell,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I suggest you to create a new User Account and check if issue occurs.

    To create a new User Account follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Click on Settings.
    • Type ‘Add, delete and manage other user accounts’ in search box.
    • Now click on ‘Add someone else to this pc’.
    • And follow the instructions to create a new User Account.

  3. For a new user account, there's no start menu and no action center

    When I create a new user account and sign in to it:

    • Nothing happens when I left-click or right-click the Start button--no menu at all.
    • When I try to open the Action Center, nothing happens; it won't open.

    So, the new user account is unusable.

    This happens when logging in to any new user account I create, not just a particular one.

    Could someone please help?

    Thank you.

    Start menu, News and Interests and Action Center doesn't open

    Action Center and Start Menu Continually Fail


    Device: Surface Pro 4
    OS: Fully Updated Windows 10

    Issue: Action Center and Start Menu continually fail.
    Symptoms: After an unpredictable amount of time, Action Center and Start Menu will not open using multiple prompts. Action Center will not respond to taskbar link or swipe from the right and Start Menu will not respond to task bar click or keyboard button.

    Troubleshooting:
    • I have done several SFC scans (the first few found stuff and repaired it and subsequent runs find nothing)
    • I've done the DISM image restore health hocus pocus to no avail.
    • I've executed "Get-AppxPackage | % { Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppxManifest.xml" -verbose }" in an elevated powershell. This works, until it doesn't.
    EDIT: Nothing is working now for troubleshooting. Going to try a restart and see how long until it happens again.


    ​None of these are permanent solutions. Any ideas as what is causing this and how to stop it from happening?
