Fix Frozen Start Menu

Start menu stuck or frozen? This guide will show you how to fix it.

    Are you experiencing the Start Menu freezing up on you, or getting stuck? We'll show you how to fix it easily (y)

    1.) Reboot the computer. This may seem worthless, but most of the time a simple reboot can be the cure of many ailments. Give it a try.

    2.) If a reboot doesn't work, try creating a new User Profile. Go to User Accounts > Change Account Type > Add New User in PC Settings. This may not be the easiest option, but it's worth a try if restarting didn't work.

    3.) If both a restart and User Profile change didn't work, open up Powershell (Start > Search "powershell") and run the following:

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

    Don't be afraid of the red text. That's perfectly normal.

    After all this, your start menu should now be functioning again :)
