    Unable to search or click START after upgrading to Windows 10 Home


    *Moved the thread*

    Hello,

    A couple of days back I upgraded to windows 10. I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 successfully and no problems. After that today I open my laptop and I have a black screen. I move my touchpad thinking I'm going to get to the login screen but still nothing happens. I hit the power button on my laptop to shut down and it does that. I turn on my computer I'm able to get to the login screen. I put my password then I see a black screen. I have IObit Advanced SystemCare so in the corner that's what I see but the rest is black. I wait for a while nothing happens then shut off the pc. Same thing happened and then I think at the third or fourth time I turn on my computer then go to the living room and come back and it's fixed. I play Minecraft so I was doing that. I also have a touchpad issue where when I hold the keys down I can't move my mouse but I already know the solution for that and so when I go to click the start button nothing happens. I was confused and thought maybe it was just slower than normal. I clicked the search button; nothing happened. I then search up on the web "unable to click start button on windows 10" and I find a post with a solution but wasn't really for me:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    • Open Windows PowerShell as Administrator
      • Right click Start button
      • Choose Command prompt (Admin)
      • Key in Powershell in the black window and hit Enter
    • Paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enterkey:Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Wait for PowerShell to execute and complete the command. Ignore the few errors (in red color) that may pop up.
    • When it finishes, try hitting Start and hopefully it’ll start working. If not, this solution won’t apply to you, unfortunately.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This didn't actually work I have my cmd open still and nothing has happened. Anything else that can resolve this issue? Any help is appreciated!

    Windows 8.1 home upgrade to 10 start button and windows key

    After upgrading my Windows 8.1 home machine to Windows 10, I found that the Windows key doesn't work anymore and I am unable to get the Windows tiles to appear as the desktop. Clicking on the Windows start key does nothing. It will show options if I
    right click it.

    Start Menu not working after upgrade

    After the last upgrade on w10 I have been unable to click and open the start button, the search bar, or icons like my wifi. I can right click and they will open, but nothing happens with a left click.

    Problem after last upgrade- Original Title

    No it just makes a new user that has a cleaner startup process, you can always go back in explorer and copy your user files back over to the new account.

    Ok, how can I make a new user? And will it be the new admin?

    I had this problem several days ago and I tried the "Get-AppXPackage" command you mentioned in your first post and it did fix the issue.

    From the source I found the command, the poster also recommended that:
    1. try to run the command several times if you see some errors (in red color);
    2. reboot after the command finishes.

    It never did finish, or I wasn't sure when it did.

    Yeah I found out a way by right-clicking the windows button and signing out. I have a question, I literally moved everything in the User folder for this user to the other user folder. Is it safe to delete this user now? Do I need to move the hidden folders too?

    I just wanna make an update. I actually transfered everything back to the original admin account because I don't like the idea of having 2 accounts and deleting the original admin account anyway. I'll look for help on other forums maybe or hopefully wait for some kind of update as I know that there's a lot of other people who have this problem.
