    Start menu not working at all


    So, I have finally got windows 10 installed and working when the start menu stops working. This would not be an issue because I installed windows classic shell right after except for the fact that I can't right click anything in the taskbar. I can right click the taskbar itself but not anything pinned there or currently opened.

    I can't select my wifi connection except by going into the network and sharing center. to change the volume I need to right click the volume and open volume mixer.

    I can't figure out what happened and when I boot from the install usb I created won't let me refresh the PC. It says that option is not available or something to that effect. If I could, I would like to just do a refresh and see if that fixes it but I can't figure out how.

    Also when I go to taskbar and start menu properties it has three tabs: taskbar, navigation and toolbars. It does not have a start menu tab.

    :)

    Taskbar, start menu not working at all

    Hi. I just upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1 and everything was fine for the first few days. Then the laptop updated and since then the taskbar, and start menu button are not working at all. I can't access anything on the taskbar at all. When I open an application
    from the desktop it is not showing up on the taskbar. I have to access them using Alt+Tab. I tried the Powershell methods but that did not work. Even the icons in the tray at the right bottom are all gone except the action center and ELAN pointing device.
    Please help with this.
