How to fix Windows 10 start button not working

#Method 1 : Use Windows Explorer

A treatment for the symptom would be to restart Windows Explorer every time this happens. This may allow you to use the Windows button until the next time that it freezes up.

-You open task manager (alt-ctrl-del or right click on taskbar and choose it)

-You find and select “Windows Explorer”

-You click Restart button on bottom right

#Method 2 : Run Windows PowerShell

1. You launch Task manager

Press the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] keys on the keyboard at the same time, or right click the Taskbar, and select Task manager.

2. You run a new Windows task

When the Task manager window opens, click the More details option to expand it, then select Run new task from the File menu.

3. You run Windows PowerShell

When the Run new task dialog box opens, type powershell, tick the box for Create this task with administrative privileges and click OK.

4. You run the System File Checker

Type sfc /scannow into the window and press the [Return] key. The scan may take some time and will end with one of three results. Windows did not find any integrity violations and Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and repaired them mean there are now no corrupt files, but Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some (or all) of them indicates a problem.

In this latter case, type (or copy and paste) DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth into the PowerShell window and press the [Return] key. This will download files from Windows Update to replace the corrupt ones and, again, this may take some time.
