    This issue has happened twice already and required a full restart to fix. I'll attempt to open the Start Menu, by clicking it or pressing the Windows key, and it will refuse to open. In restarting Windows Explorer, the issue still persists. Considering I'm heavily reliant on Windows Search to get around my machine, this is quite an issue.

    Anybody else have this issue or a possible solution?

    :)

    Bug in Windows 10 - start menu and apps not working

    I have the same issue.

    Been using Win10 since the official launch - then suddenly a few days ago the Start Menu will not open and New Notifications will not open.

    I created a new separate Account (via Control Panel not Settings window) and the Start Menu works. But, it refuses my password on the second screen, when setting up my MS account ?

    Woeful position - it's worse than the old Microsoft Blue Screen !!

    Microsoft get this issue fixed, please !!!

    Can't open Start Menu or Settings in Windows 10 Creators Update

    NOTE: I was fine just after I got the update. But after a few hours, this started happening. I thought restarting might help, but it didn't. Although it was taking an absurdly, suspiciously long time to restart...
