Reinstall Start menu in windows 10

With the launch of windows 10 Microsoft re-launched Start menu after a hefty complaint regarding this.However,they changed the code of the start menu and introduced new XAML start menu.
To be honest,this start menu has bugs.My new HP machine has windows 10 installed and occasionally the left click doesn't work and due to this Cortana also doesn't work.To overcome this issue,either I need to register start menu again or boot into safe mode to make it work.This article discusses the same issue and its cure.
Technically,start menu is just like a modern UI metro app which can be reinstalled using Powershell.

Re-Register start

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc or Right click the taskbar and select Task manager to open Task manager as shown:

  2. Click File>Run new task in top left.
  3. Under the Window that opens,type in powershell.Make sure Run this task with Adminstrative privilages is checked.
  4. In the new window that opens enter the following command carefully:
    Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
    (You can also copy the above text and press Ctrl+V in the command window)
  5. Reboot your computer and start issues should be resolved.
Sometimes start issue can also be resolved by booting into safe mode once and then back to normal mode.
That's it :)
