Did you download/upgrade to Windows 10?
Did you do it intentionally? I didn’t. I have a happy clicker 8 year old. He downloaded it for me. “Hey,” he said. “It was FREE”!
I like Windows 10. Mostly. The layout is very similar to that of a tablet. But everything is still in it’s familiar Windows 7 place. Mostly. It runs fine.
Except for the start menu. It tends to take frequent vacations.
Did your windows menu, the start menu, stop working, too? Does it restart your computer every time you click on it? That’s what mine does.
I have found several ways to try to fix it. None of them worked.
This is only way that has worked for me. I’ve had to do it twice now.
1) Push control I (capital i) at the same time.
2) This bring up the settings menu. Click “Updates and Security”
3) In the left hand menu click “Recovery”
4) On the right hand side, click “Get Started”
5) Click “Keep my files and setting”
Then you’re off and running. It will reinstall Windows 10. It will not remove your personal files. It will, however, remove any apps and programs you have installed. So, if I were you, I’d make a list of what programs you have installed and what bookmarks you have on whichever internet browser you use so that you reinstall them after Windows is done reinstalling itself. If you understood that, welcome to the Geek Club.
I don’t have any games loaded on to my computer so I can’t confirm if it removes those. I know it did remove Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, Skype, my WordPress App, and Norton Security.
