Fix Frozen Start Menu In Windows 10

Fix for Start Menu not working

  1. Crush
    Operating System:
    Windows 10
    A rather annoying occurrence in Windows 10 has been a frozen Start Menu and non-working Cortana. You can fix this in several different ways:

    Method 1: Restart The Computer



    It's the most common way to cure weird things going on with your PC and very well may fix this.

    Method 2: Does it happen under another User Profile?

    Create a new user

    Method 3: Using The Command Prompt/PowerShell

    There is a command which will re-deploy all the built in apps and potentially fix this issue.

    Open a Command Prompt and type:

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

    This process may take a few minutes, but using one of these three methods should sort out the issue.
