I am also a user of Windows 10 and using it from the very first date of its public appearance. However, I feel like it has some bug and Microsoft is trying hard to patch all the bugs with their timely updates. I love to update my machine with the entire latest security patch. But I know some of my friends don’t like to update their PC because of Internet plan. I can understand their problem as I was in the same situation couple of years ago.

One of the major problems with Windows 10 is its unresponsive to your certain commands. For example, the Start menu doesn’t work even after you click on it several times. I had this issue, and it got solved in couples of updates. My friend had this issue as he doesn’t update he was not able to solve this. So, he called me and asked me for a solution. I started digging through the internet and found some cool ways to fix this issue. I tried one, and it worked.

    So, I am trying to mention that method to fix Start menu not working on Windows 10.

    Fix Windows 10 Start Menu Doesn’t Work/Response

    I will try my best to simplify the process to help you know what to do when you ever face such issue in near future.

    For this tutorial, we will use Command prompt to command the PC to work according to our own command. To solve the issue, we need to get the admin access of the Command to get our work done.
    Don’t worry; I am telling you how you can do this.

    Perform a right click on your start icon and you can see a bunch of options. There you can spot an option called “Command Prompt (Admin)”.

    Start Menu
    Start Menu

    Click on that option and it will open a command prompt for you. Remember if it asks for your permission then just grant it.

    Now copy the below command and paste that in the command prompt. (Note- Ctrl+V will not work at Command prompt. You have to paste by right clicking on the command screen)

    Get-AppXPackage –AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage – DisableDevelopmentMode –Register“$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}

    Now allow PowerShell to perform the command. Wait until the performances complete. You may see some errors there but ignore them.

    Once it is done, you can restart your PC for the better result.
