Start Menu No Longer Works

My Win10 Start menu no longer works with my main user account. It still works under other user logins.

It doesn't open whether I hit the Windows key or if I click the Start button.

Cortana No Longer Searching The Start Menu?

Jul 28, 2015

I'm in the habit of launching most applications by hitting the Windows key, typing a few letters of the app name, and then hitting Enter.

Unfortunately, the Cortana search box is no longer able to find any applications. It shows me a list of local documents, and offers to search "My Stuff" or the web.

When I choose to search "My Stuff," I can filter by Documents, Folders, Apps, Settings, Photos, Videos and Music. Selecting "Apps" invariably returns no results. I am left to manually navigate through the Start menu which, while not terribly difficult, is more of a hassle than I'm used to.

I've only noticed it on the RTM build (10240), while the previous build (10166) worked fine for me.

Desktop Flickers When Click On Start Menu For Longer?

Sep 17, 2015

after been using Windows 10 since launch I've got annoyed by those silly things whenever I click start menu for longer than like 2 or 3 minutes. When it happens, the windows desktop flickers to black. I uninstalled the drivers and used the microsoft generic drivers and it does the same thing. Of course, when I go to safe mode and I can't use the start menu as it just opens and closes in less than the second on its own. Because of this I've been researching this through Google and it somehow all of that kinda doesn't seem to relate to that. Also, I get the error message when I shut down and I couldn't get to see the error message because windows shuts all that stuff down.

Ethernet No Longer Works

Aug 2, 2015

I upgraded to windows 10 on my desktop pc on july 29th and haven't had any problems since. I know that upgrade/updates are forced to happen so when random issues occurred today I feel that maybe there was an update sent out? My ethernet no longer works, only to connect outside my LAN, but I can still remote desktop and access the computer so the port/cable still work and the router works for all other comps over ethernet. The internet goes in for a split second when I reset the adapter but then instantly goes out. I also noticed when launching a steam game the xbox controller no longer works to control it despite it working yesterday and the controller will control steam itself just not the games. Should I downgrade to windows 8.1 again, since I don't have internet anymore any fixes wouldn't even reach my computer?

Networking :: Open Network No Longer Works?

Nov 5, 2015

Prior to W10 I had a network NOT using Homegroup. Network worked who needs it? Now, I see some of my devices on the network, but when I try to share files I get a window requesting user name and password. Never used passwords before. I think Homegroup is sneaking in there, but all the devices say they don't have a Homegroup but some of them say the see a Homegroup on other devices. I've disabled Homegroup on all devices tried changing advanced network settings to no avail.

Installation :: Win 8.1 Dual Boot No Longer Works

Sep 15, 2015

I have 4 partitions.
1 => System Reserved
2 => Win 10
3 => Win 8.1
4 => Storage

When I try to boot into the win 8.1 it gives me an error. Even after restoring the win 8.1. partition from a Macrium image.

What gives? Two days ago I decided I wanted to shrink the win 8.1 partition.

I made a macrium image of my Win 10 partition (because I'm not crazy) and I already had a macrium image of win 8.1. I started shrinking the 8.1 and the computer went unresponsive so I rebooted. I used EASEUS Partition Manager.

I found out later that the reason the computer halted was because the version of EASEUS I used was outdated.

I attempted to boot into 8.1 and was greeted with the error. (Will update this post presently with the picture.)

I updated EASEUS and successfully shrunk the 8.1 partition. I took that unallocated space and enlarged the WIN 10 partition. Still unable to boot into 8.1.

Used macrium to overwrite the 8.1 partition.

Computer refused to boot completely. No Win 10 or Win 8.

Macrium restored the Win 10 partition, and the Win 8.1 partition. Discovered something interesting. Macrium restored the partitions as if I had never shrunk the 8.1 partition and enlarged the Win 10 partition. Is it supposed to do that?

Still unable to boot into Win 8.

Graphic Cards :: Duplicate Monitor To TV Via Hdmi No Longer Works

Dec 29, 2015

It worked fine in windows 7 but now when I choose "duplicate display" from the side menu popup the tv goes blank as if Ive unplugged the hdmi. All 3 of the remaining display options work including the extend display and tv only setting so its not a cable issue. Laptop model is XPS 17 L702X. Now when I used to do it in win 7 sometimes it wouldnt autodetect it so I would have to right click desktop, open invidia up and click rigorous display detect or something like that and then laptop screen would blink and make the beep noise like when hdmi cable got connected. Now in the invida panel it just simply wont allow mirroring, nothing happens when I right click on the display box that would normally show 1 and a smaller box would say 2. I dont get it but Id really like that feature back If its something simple I could do.

Drivers/Hardware :: Canon MP250 Printer No Longer Works?

Jan 4, 2016

When the print spooler is turned on I get a message that says the printer queue is full. (The printer queue is empty.)

If I try the printer without the printer spool on i.e. print directly to the printer, I get a message that says "Unable to create a print job."

This printer was working with Win 10 until recently. The scan function works as it should. So the computer does see and interacts with the printer through the usb port.

Something must have changed in the latest Windows 10 release to gum up the works.

Browser/Email :: Viewing Local Video Files In Chrome No Longer Works?

Dec 22, 2015

I'm trying out the chromecast device to hopefully eliminate having to move my laptop across the room and connect it via hdmi every night to watch movies on my tv screen. In windows 7 I could just drag the file into a new chrome page and it would open the file which could then be cast. Now when I drag a movie file into chrome it creates a download window in the bottom of chrome like any other file download, and then if I open it from that it just opens my default video player and plays the movie file. Any way to view local video files in chrome browser like you could in windows 7?

When I right click on something to get the context menu, it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Here are three images showing how it appears. As you can see, there is a completely variable response as to what appears. I am using the standard Windows 10 theme in a completely fresh install (not an upgrade) on a new hard disk.

Taskbar And Start Menu Properties Have No Start Menu Tab Anymore?

Aug 1, 2015

Here's a screenshot of "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialog from a fresh clean install of Windows 10 Pro x64

As you can see, despite its name, it does not have a tab for "Start Menu". I remember that Preview versions of Windows 10 had a "Start Menu" tab. Did they just remove at the last moment? And how I change Start Menu options without that tab?

No Longer Able To View Desktop - Only Full Start Screen

Jan 11, 2016

My computer has a mind of its own apparently. I can no longer view my regular desktop. All I get is the full start screen with all the stupid tiles on it. I have tried changing my settings, restarting, shutting down and rebooting, nothing is working. When I click the windows logo all I get is that same full start screen. Am I missing something? All I want is for it to show me my regular, normal desktop. Not these tiles!
