Click and Right click not working on Windows 10 Start Menu

I found out the hard way, that by removing the AppX software packages that come pre-installed in Windows 10, the “immersive” shell might not work as supposed.

To be more precise, clicking and right-clicking the Start Menu will not do anything.


In order to solve this, all AppX packages will need to be reinstalled and the following command will fix the issue:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
