Start menu not working

Start menu could not load - try to restart processes in bat script:


powershell.exe "get-service WpnUserService_* | stop-service -force"

taskkill /f /im "shellexperiencehost.exe"

taskkill /f /im "explorer.exe"

taskkill /f /im "searchui.exe"

ren c:\users\%username%\appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\CloudStore\cloudstore.dat cloudstore.dat.old

start explorer.exe

exit


Reinstall the windows shell experience:

  • Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “appxmetadataappxbundlemanifest.xml”)}


Start Menu Not Showing Icons

Fix: Restart Windows Explorer
