The release of the Anniversary Update has caused some issues that major updates usually create for Windows 10 users. We already wrote problems with Cortana along with screen flicker, but now we reports of various Start Menu problems caused by the second major update for Windows 10 have surfaced.
Users all over the web are experiencing various issues related to the Start Menu, with some people not being able to open the Start Menu at all while others are encountering absent Start Menu apps and icons.
A solution for these Start Menu problems is still unknown and we can’t tell you exactly what to do since the cause is different for most users. However, we can recommend you check out our article about Start Menu issues in previous versions of Windows 10 where you might find a solution that could work in the Anniversary Update as well.
Microsoft is actually aware of the situation and with a high number of complaints, this issue is impossible to ignore. The company originally advised users to perform some basic troubleshooting, like running an SFC scanner or performing a clean boot, but as expected, these solutions weren’t helpful to most.
Because Start Menu issues are a serious problem for users who encountered them, Microsoft is promising a new patch that will allegedly solve the majority of Start Menu problems reported by users.

It’s been almost a week since Microsoft promised an fix for Start Menu issues, but it still hasn’t been released. The only thing users can do after trying other possible solution is to wait for Microsoft to finally release a fix. Or, if the issue is too serious, roll back to a previous version of Windows 10 until Microsoft solves the problem.
