Start Menu is probably the most popular feature of Windows 10. However, for some PC versions, this feature may be corrupted. In this article, Network Administrator will guide you how to fix Start Menu errors on Windows 10.

Here are 3 ways to fix errors you can apply.

1. Fix error files

If the Search bar is still active, search for  powershell. Then right-click Windows PowerShell in the search results and select  Run as administrator .

However, if the Search bar does not work, press the Windows + R key , type  powershelland press Enter. Right-click the PowerShell icon  on the taskbar and select  Pin to taskbar . Close the PowerShell program again. Hold down  Shift + Ctrl while right-clicking on the PowerShell icon again. Select  Run as administrator .

Once you're in the Powershell command line environment, type  sfc / scannow and press Enter. Then wait a few minutes.

In the Powershell run window, type sfc / scannow and press Enter

Finally, the program will tell you that it did not find the corrupted Windows file, found it and fixed it, or it found some but did not fix it. If you get a second response, try the command:

dism / online / cleanup-image / restorehealth

Hopefully it will download the replacement file.

 

2. Delete and reinstall the Metro or Modern applications

Don't worry, this is not as bad as you think. It only affects the Metro or Modern apps you get through Microsoft stores. Old Windows programs will not be affected.

Open  PowerShell as the administrator described above. Enter the command below:

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

When it has completed the task, restart the computer to complete the error correction process.

3. Reinstall

If the above two methods cannot fix the error, you may have to reinstall Windows 10 from the beginning to fix this problem.

First, make sure you have created the latest backup. If not, copy the contents of the folders and switch to the external hard drive. You probably won't need it, but you should do it to prevent risk.

Press  Windows + L to exit Windows. Click the Welcome screen to access the login screen. Click the power button in the lower right corner of the screen, then hold down the Shift key when you select Restart.

This will take you to the Recovery window. Select  Troubleshoot> Reset this PC> Keep my files and follow the on-screen instructions.

When finished, you will have to reinstall all programs that are not included with Windows.

Hopefully one of these three ways will help you fix the Start Menu error that does not work on your Win 10 device!
