Hi Karl,

Since it could be due to many reasons, you can try the below steps to resolve the startup menu missing issue:
  1. Open Windows PowerShell as Administrator
    1. Right click Start button
    2. Choose Command prompt (Admin)
    3. Key in Powershell in the black window and hit Enter
  2. Paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enter key:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  3. Wait for PowerShell to execute and complete the command. Ignore the few errors (in red color) that may pop up.
  4. When it finishes, try hitting Start and hopefully it’ll start 10 start button and menu
If it doesn't work, then you can try the below methods as well:

1. Sign out and Sign in
Sign out and Sign in or restart your PC and see if the problem goes away.

2. Automatic Repairs
If your PC prompts for Automatic Repair, continue with it and let Windows carry it out.

3. Kill and restart the Cortana process
If you find that Cortana is not working properly, the best thing to do would be to kill Cortana process and restart the process via Task Manager. If it was a minor runtime error Cortana would just take a restart to fix it.

4. Disable Antivirus software
Some security software are known to create this issue – Avast for instance. Disable it and see if it makes the problem go away. If your security software is the culprit, make sure you are using its latest version – else you may want to change it.

I hope this helps.

Problemet skjedde for noen timer siden, etter at jeg hadde jobbet med filen. Filen er på ca 13 sider. Hadde akkurat lagret filen og krysset ut word. Skulle sende filen over mail, men da jeg trykket "insert file" i hotmail, fant jeg ikke filen. Kan ikke finne den noen plass, hverken med spotlight eller i finder. Ser ikke ut som den ligger på min mac i det hele tatt.
