    Windows 10 - Start Icon


    My Windows 10 Start button no longer responds to a left click. I now have to resort to right clicking that icon to shut down my laptop. Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Parts of Windows 10 not working

    Andre,

    I reinstalled Windows 10 as you instructed and everything appeared to go normally. After the installation was complete, I started to use Windows 10. The Windows Edge icon in the taskbar doesn't start Edge when the icon is invoked and I still don't get
    the Windows tiles when I left click on the Windows start icon. If I right click on the Windows start icon I get the normal menu of choices. Any other things I might try to fix these issues? Thanks.

    My start button is not responding on left click. I have been working on it for days, all kind of changes in Settings etc etc.
    and restore by an earlier Restore Point; I will try to call the support of this pc (Asus) tomorrow, so I downloaded
    teamviewer.org, in that way the support tech can see in real time what the problem is.
    Hope you can get it fixed too.

    If you ask " where is avast?", it means you don't have it installed.
    If so, you can forget about it. Your solution lies somewhere else.
