    Start, search bar and right-click on IE11 all not working

    Same problem with start menu, dead. Also search the web and windows bar is dead. Right click on Internet Explorer 11 is dead. Real slow start up. I thank everyone for the suggestions although they didn`t work. Bottom line is, no when to call it quits. Going
    back in life seems to be the norm.

    Windows 10 fails to populate the toolbar and start-up does not work

    The tool bar across the bottom of the screen fails to populate. The start menu is dead. The problem before this was that the OS was stuck in a restart look. Cortana is frequently dead. It seem as though there is a problem every week. This is killing my
    productivity. How can I fix this...permanently?

    Nar, the Start screen is not dead yet. It's just turned off in build 9926. You can enable it again if you like. *Smile

    Plus, it's still early. Many features can still be restored, combined, or updated before the final RTM is ready.

    That's what I am hoping, to see lots of improvements on this coming up (touch side for tablets)

    For desktops 10 is coming along nicely, but for touch (currently) we seem to be going backwards

    Thank you Brink
    But if they are there, why not just let people chose what they want?

    We may have UI options before it's all over with, but we shall see. For now, it's just a preview build being patched in pieces for the public to play with to help debug it.

    I didn't realize the Start Screen was dead, it takes a single click to full screen it in 9926.

    I wish I had seen that before I went back to 8.1. I think I may just have another go at 10 on my laptop.

    Alright I'm a bit confused here...

    I had build 9879 which obviously had the start menu, and when I updated to 9926, the start menu was still there for me. I didn't have to do anything it was just there. Perhaps it's because I'm running the enterprise version?

    I ask because I was just about to post here - Microsoft: don't they ever learn? but decided to double check here first and saw Brinks post, which lead me to his tutorial indicating that you might have to use a registry hack?

    - Start Menu or Start Screen - Select in Windows 10 - Using option One: First step - If you have not already, you will first need to enable using the resizable Start menu. Here's the tutorial for that, which does say you need to do a registry hack - Start Menu - Enable or Disable Resizable in Windows 10.

    I guess the main question is - is all this necessary to get the start menu back. And how come I didn't have to go through those gyrations?

    Thanks

    The start menu is working for my 9926 installs, 1 update and 1 fresh on none enterprise versions.

    I don't have the option to turn off or on.

    That image is exactly what mines looks like on the Enterprise edition.

    Start Screen is dead not Start Menu. The old Start Screen (like in 8.1) has morphed into something new that "to me" looks like some of both.
