Windows 10 won’t show Start menu

Microsoft made a bit of noise about the “new and improved” Start menu, which is basically a hybrid of Windows 7 and 8.

Well, yesterday my Start menu stopped working. It wouldn’t display by clicking the Start button or by pressing the Win key.

It turns out this is quite common. Microsoft should be ashamed of themselves.

This morning it happened again on startup. And the context menus for apps in the task bar wouldn’t display either. A restart fixed it.

I’m not going to put up with Windows 10 much longer. It wasn’t ready for release. Windows 8.1 is a much better OS.
