    Start menu, settings, store and all apps not working Windows 10 20h2


    Good morning

    Some days ago, I had problems with Windows Update, but I could not do an in-place upgrade because of the 20h2 bug, so I decided to use the program here: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    The process ended successfully, and I have been able to keep my files and upgrade.

    When everything ended up successfully, I tried to open Microsoft Store, but it crashed every time.
    So I tried the troubleshooting inside the Settings, that found the problem but didn't solve it.
    When I have used the powershell command Code:
    it showed many errors.

    When I restarted:
    • Start does not open
    • Microsoft Store and all the apps (built-in included), when opened, show the popup error "explorer.exe class not registered"
    • I cannot use win+x or win+i
    • Settings do not open up
    • Only .exe apps work well (no errors)

    So I have tried to:
    1. sfc and dism (also from safe boot) --> No errors and repair successful
    2. Do the powershell command again
    3. Create new users
    4. In place upgrade two times

    But no one of these methods worked.

    Currently I am using build 19042.685.

    I don't have antivirus or optimisation programs installed.

    Is there a way to solve this problem without having to format all the partitions?

    Thanks in advance for the help!
    W.

    :)
