Problem: For no apparent reason, the Windows 10 start button has stopped working. Clicking on the button does nothing. In addition, the Cortana search box may also be frozen.

In my case, I could right click the button. But a single click did nothing.

Solution: I found my answer on the British Telecom ( site. Option 2 worked for me. Just reinstalling all my apps seemed to do the trick.

It does make one wonder what makes this sort of thing happen. At least there is a fix!
