Fix Start Button Not Working in Windows 10 Build 10074


We just for formatted our laptop to Windows 10 Build 10074 to test it out.


Started with excitement but end up frustrated when the most important START button did not work / freeze. Then we cannot access to application even after perform full Windows Update.

Note:- Since it is still in Preview version, we can’t complain so much and expect more bug. This is our 1st bug that we have encountered after operating system and drivers installation.

After google around, found that someone has posted a solution at forum here. It seem this bug has been around since Build 9926. Don’t really understand why still appear in this build version.

Here is the solution that we took:-

1. Right click on Windows Icon and select RUN or press Windows logo + R

2. Type powershell

3. Right the powershell program and select Run as Administrator

4. Execute this command

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

5. Wait till it complete. Don’t worry if got any error. Now try again. Your START button will work after this.

Try it out if you face this issue. Good luck on your adventure on using Windows 10 Technical Preview.
