  1. Start Menu not opening


    Trying to resolve this issue for a couple of days where the start menu doesn't open when its clicked on. I have seen other posts with this issue where its an issue with personalization settings under ms-settings. I am unable to open Ms-settings because I receive the error "Invalid value for registry". I tried opening it from the notifications button but that doesn't launch at all. I am out of ideas. I am trying to avoid reinstalling the system.

    I have tried
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    sfc /scannow
    Ran multiple different virus scanners.

    This computer is running Build 10240
    AMD Phenom II 1045T Processor
    8Gb of Ram

    :)

  3. Right Click Start Menu Not Opening Context Menu - WINDOWS 10

    Great find. I tried this and it worked perfect. Quick and easy.

    I've been struggling for 2 days to get this fixed. Microsoft support were of no help at all. The tool is called Win-X menu editor for Windows 8. Works fine in 10 though.
