    Start menu typing search doesn't work


    I thought I could just type "rege" and get Regedit result right away. No. I need to type the whole name.
    What's going on? The Windows Search service is running.

    I disabled Cortana, but that shouldn't matter, should it?

    windows 10 start menu doesn´t work

    Hello,

    I have the same problem existing for more than 2 weeks ago. When trying select start menu I received message "critical mistake, start menu doesnt work. We´ll try to fix it next time you log on" and "immidetly logg off".

    I tried everything, fsc scan (no corupted filles found), dism, powershell(attempt reinstall apps with offered commands), wsreset.exe, booting in safe mode (in safe mode the start menu also doesn´t work), etc.... but without succes. I log on with microsoft
    account. I had no installed new applications for a while.

    Sorry for bad english...

    Anton
