Windows 10 loss of start menu

by Katman2007 / November 23, 2015 11:11 AM PST

I have been using Windows 10 for three months. At least once per week I lose the start menu. I go through the routine of safe booting etc. which temporarily fixes the problem. However, I have noticed that in the Boot menu it states that my current and default OS is Windows 8.1. Did Windows 10 not upgrade properly? Any one else having this problem?

Seen it.

Nod to the press of that button and a reboot. It went away.

However I feel it's time to admit that no OS has been perfected. But you are seeing folk that demand perfection. We're not there yet.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
