Windows 10, Taskbar frozen

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro N (from 8.1 Pro N), and I cannot use the taskbar… It is completely frozen, I cannot click on it (so no start menu, no icon, nothing… ). Also, I cannot use shortcut such as Windows+R or Windows+X, nothing shows up… It is really annoying!

How can I fix that?

There is a fairly easy but temporary fix for the problem.

Whenever the Taskbar freezes

1. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager

2. Under the Head “Windows Processes” of the Processes Menu find Windows Explorer.

3. Click on it and then Click on Restart button on the bottom right.

4. In a few seconds Explorer restarts and Taskbar starts working again.
