Start Menu is one of the most anticipated features of Windows 10, along with Microsoft’s personal assistant, Cortana. And if it somehow doesn’t show up due some system error, that could be a huge disappointment. Fortunately, there’s a solution if your Start Menu doesn’t show up in Windows 10 Technical Preview.
Start Menu Won't Show Up In Windows 10 Technical Preview
Method 1: Solve the problem with PowerShell

There are a lot of factors in your system that could prevent your Start Menu from showing up, but Windows PowerShell could solve them for just a few moments. To solve your Start Menu issue with Windows PowerShell, do the following:

  1. Go to Search and type powershell
  2. Right click on the PowerShell icon and select Run as Administrator
  3. In PowerShell enter the following key and press Enter:
    • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}
  4. Wait for PowerShell to execute the command (a few errors might show up, ignore them)
  5. When everything is finished try to open Start Menu again

Method 2: Solve the problem with Registry Editor

If Powershell solution somehow didn’t work for you, you can try to fix your problem with Registry Editor, because your problem maybe lays somewhere in the registry. Here’s what you should do to solve your Start Menu problem with Registry Editor:

  1. Press Windows key and R at the same time and type regedit
  2. Open Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion ImmersiveShellLauncher
  3. Click Edit > New > DWORD (32-bit) Value, and name it UseExperience
  4. Double-click the newly created item and set the value to 0
  5. Click OK, close the Registry Editor and then restart your computer
