Q. Once again I have trouble with the Start menu not working. This time I have followed on of the instructions to recover it that points to run a troubleshooter.

I did and got following result:

“Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost” and “Microsoft.Windows.Cortana” applications need to be installed correctly.
