    b. Type the following command, and then press
    ENTER

    Follow the steps to Run DISM Commands:

    1) Press Windows + x on your keyboard.

    2) Select Command prompt (Admin) to open Administrator Command Prompt.

    3) In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press the Enter key after each command:

    Start Menu , Search and Notifications not work

    Same here- but I use Stardock Start10 menu which works fine and soooo much better (ie the same as Win7). Why Microsoft changed it I don't know. But I still can't get Search and Action Centre like you :-(
