  • Hi Plengo,

    Which version of Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 10 are you using? I use Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate on Windows 10 (Build 10240), everything works fine.

    >>after restart and system updates start menu stopped working

    Please don't update your windows first after installing Visual Studio 2013, which can help us to make sure whether the updates for your windows lead to this problem. After installing Visual Studio 2013, please don't restart your computer and open Visual Studio 2013, then click the Start menu to check whether it works.

    Then update your Windows to make sure whether the problem occurs after installing the updates.

    You also can try following steps to fix the Start menu problem.

    1. Right click on the Start Menu button -> Search -> Windows PowerShell -> Run As administrator.
    2. Paste the following command into PowerShell and execute it: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Best Regards,
