  1. Windows 10 Start Icon not working


    I have just upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. It worked fine for a week and now my Start Icon will not work.
    I have tried this option with no success:


    • Press Windows Key + R on your keyboard.
    • Key in PowerShell and hit Enter.
    • Right click on the PowerShell icon on the taskbar and select Run as Administrator.
    • Now paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enter key:Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • NOW for the important part ! Locate to : C:/Users/name/AppData/Local/ and delete the TileDataLayer folder.

      When I try this I get the following error when I run Powershell as administrator.

  3. Windows 10 - Start Icon not working!!

    I did exactly as you described, clicking Apply and getting the window asking me if I want to reboot. I say yes, the window goes away and nothing happens. The computer does not reboot. If i do control alt delete and manually reboot, i am back where i
    was, same screen with non working icons. This is so frustrating. Everything worked just fine two days ago before i upgraded (downgraded???) to Windows 10.
