       - Search for "Create a restore point" in the Start Menu and open it.

       - Click on the "System Restore" button and follow the prompts to restore your system.

    8. Reinstall Windows Apps:

       - Go to the Microsoft Store, search for the app, and reinstall it.

    9. Check for Third-Party Software Conflicts:

       - Sometimes, third-party software can conflict with the Start Menu. Try disabling or uninstalling recently installed software to see if the issue resolves.

    If you have tried all of the above methods and your Start Menu is still not working, you may need to contact Microsoft support for help.

    I hope this helps!
