    Start (Windows) Button not working


    My Windows button Start Menu on my Dell Laptop stopped working and is unresponsive to any clicks. I am unable to access software and other major functionalities on my computer due to this. I tried updating Windows 10 version as well, but after many hours of preparing and installing, it gave me an error message (code : 0xc0000005). Thanks for any advice!

  3. Start Button displaying but not working


    The start button was working until there was a forced reboot (power failure). Then left click (normal click) over the start button does absolutely nothing. Right click brings up a menu but "programs" and also "settings" are missing and not included on this list. Search or Task View buttons do not work either with "normal" click. Does anyone have any suggestion or fixes?
    Thank you in advance *Huh

    Windows 10 start button not working

    Followed the steps as indicated. They actually made the situation worse.

    First reboot after doing the listed steps, the start button would work but there was a 2 second delay before the start menu would appear. It was always instantaneous before. second, Edge no longer works at all. Edge will load and I can enter url, but nothing
    happens.

    Second reboot and start button no longer works at all (again). Edge still does not work.

    Never had ANY issues with Windows 7. Should never have upgraded!!!!!!!!!
